A flooded Amazon of steel flowed roaring, immensely fast, over our heads and the machine gun bullets made a pattern of sharper purpose and maniac language against that diluvian rush. Flaring lights, small ones, great ones, flew up and went spinning sideways in the cloud of night; one's eyes seemed not quick enough; one heard nothing from one's shouting neighbour.

Almost finished standing on my workbench were two German heavy weapon teams. Today I did the last touch ups on the bases and here they are:
German 'Granatwerfer 16' from Great War Miniatures:
German 'Maxim' heavy machine gun from Great War Miniatures:
I'm hoping to get my last Great War Germans done at least till next friday. Yesterday I found some more figures I've totally forgotten about in an old packing case and decided to include them into my 'to paint' queue for the challenge. This weekend I'll try to basecoat all the stuff so I can take a week off from painting before the challenge starts.
I hope you enjoyed and thanks for viewing!
