1918 saw great changes in the warfare of the Western Front. Russia pulled out of the war, freeing thousands more German troops to push the Allies back huge distances. The Allied counteroffensives, with the new tanks, evolving tactics, and the arrival of the Americans, forced the Germans back towards their own borders and defeat.

Assembling the Gun Teams
Each gun team has a gun, a limber, one NCO (either d. or e. above) and one of each gun crewman (f. to i. above) on a large artillery base. Use plastic base plugs to fill the unneeded holes in the base.

For convenience, many people prefer to paint the gun and limber separately from the crew, then glue to the base after painting.
