Very nice  Smiley

A quick question... I note the blue cuffs, is this representative of the artillery arm or unique to a particular regiment?
I ask as this may be a future project for me (always fancied painting up some Gallipolli types).

Cheers

Blue is the arm of service colour for artillery;  '...branch of service was indicated by coloured collars for officers and on the edging of officers kalabak, collar patches for the other ranks. The basic branch colour of the Infantry was olive green, of machine-gun companies grass green, of the cavalry light grey, and of the artillery dark blue. Ranks of officers was indicated by silver pips and golden braiding on shoulder-boards. (Members of the General Staff had Red braids on their trousers.)...'  Sources are somewhat unclear about when the various types were used, so I'll end up with a mix.

Version 1


Version 2

Non-comissioned officers are distinguished from rank and file by having coloured shoulder straps, of distinctive colour for the arm to which they belong. To distinguish the various grades of non-commissioned officers, broad transverse bands are added (gilt for combatant ranks, silver for non-combatant). Sergeants have one band, assistant sergeant-majors two bands, and sergeant-majors three bands. Corporals have no band. The shoulder straps are bordered with red edging, and sergeant-majors also wear a red tassel to their side orms.
A further distinction of bands of distinctive colour above the cuffs is also now being introduced : in this case a corporal will have one broad band, a sergeant one broad and one narrow, an assistant sergeant-major two broad, and a sergeant-major three broad bands.

Those look great, plastics have obviously improved a lot since my day, and your painting really shows it off!
