Their Reach Is Long

Here we have some 54mm Tarbooshian artillerymen with one of the guns supplied by Armworth-Whitstrong's. The gun has been refurbished since this photo was taken. What is needed now are some tractor units, horse or steam-powered, to move the guns about in FLW games. The gun probably rates only a three man crew so one chap will be getting posted soon. The toy soldier firing the gun appears to be using a wand but I promise you it's a lanyard. Mind you, if it was a wand...........

..........BANGISSIAMUS!


1st Artillery Battery


All the best!

  1. The gun looks really old..antique almost. Must be worth some money?

  2. Paul,
    It's a Britains WW1 field gun. They go for £5 - £10 on ebay.

  4. AIP now make a British Camel Corps gun team, should be easy enough to convert to Tarbushians with just a head change.

    Best wishes, Brian

    1. Such temptation! It's the Birmingham Toy Soldier Show soon and I do need extra infantry to get my lot up to strength (20 figures) so we'll see.......
