steel helmets/trenches/mud aesthetic than the service dress caps thing. But the early war vibe is cool in its own way - who doesn't love the funky drab pickelhaube covers with regimental numbers on 'em? - and it was likely only a matter of time before I got sucked in. The recent sudden passing of our good friend Glenn resulted in my acquiring some Foundry early-war Germans and a few French, and that also spurred along the new project in his memory.
So at the end of the summer I placed a large order with my Foundry supplier for British in SD caps and more Germans in pickelhauben (plus Uhlans!!) and this is the first product of that order.
For Warhammer Historical's The Great War rules, this could represent a battalion of two companies, each of two platoons.
