Battle of Vimy Ridge

On April 9th, the Canadian War Museum commemorated the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. Check out the photographs from our demonstration, which featured a 6’ x 10’ table and all of the Canadian infantry divisions. You can see the review here.

3D printed French SPG photos

Photos of 3D printed St Chamond self-propelled gun added here. The models are 6mm scale. The quality of 3D printed figures and vehicles is improving all the time but the process is expensive. These vehicles are quite brittle but for a specialist niche they are just the business.

More historical tank scenarios are under development for inclusion in future Great War Spearhead supplements.
