Pillbox-the Hard Nut of the Trench Line

No soldier crossing "No Man's Land" wants to face the reinforced terror of a pillbox with a manned machine gun.

Protected by barbed wire entanglements,infantry support and sweeping fire from the machine gun, this pillbox is the hard point in a line of defences in one of the countless ruined villages found on the Western Front.

I made this pillbox from scratch in Spring 2010 which is also when I painted the early war 25mm metal German soldiers from Old Glory.
