Great War British Mark IV

The Heavy Tank platoon can include Mark IV tanks in either the male or female versions, either OQF 6 pounder guns or Vickers machine guns.  I magnetized the sponsons so Sam could switch them easily.

Mark IV Male with OQF 6 pounder guns and Vickers machine guns.
Tried to keep the weathering simple.
Mark IV Female with only Vickers machine guns.

Great War British Mark A Whippet

The Medium Tank Platoon consists of one to five Mark A Whippet tanks, armed with multiple machine guns.  I chose to model this tank as A233 'Crossmichael', which saw action in August, 1918.

I tried to make it a little dirty, without it being a mess.

Great War British OQF 18 pounder Field Battery

These 18 pounders are the best option to counter armor in the Great War era, and can be fielded in a unit of one, two, three, or six.  The smaller Detachment doesn't have a command team, but the larger Battery does.

The guns, crew and caisson fill the base nicely, without feeling cramped.

Painted the fourth gun for 1940 lists.

Great War British 3" Stokes Trench Mortar Platoon

These Trench Mortars can be fielded from one to four stands per platoon.  Here's a whole battery of four.
I wish BF would've added in some ammunition canisters or something, the big bases look so empty.

Four guns, no command team in sight.  Looks like Flames of War V4!
