I've got a friend who is trying to get his. 28mm Belgian colonial army up to speed for WWI. He is quite taken with the dog MG carts, but neither of us has any idea who makes them. Some TMP research indicates Irregular made them, but I cannot find them on their current website.

Does anyone know who makes these?

Thank you!

I believe those Gaddis minis are the Battle Honors ones?: link

Brigade Models do one too: link

I have considered Belgians myself, largely because of the dog carts!

I thought Battlehonors had some in their early War Belgian WW1 range.

Gaddis and Battle Honors figures are exactly the same.

Thanks, guys. My friend is going to get the Gaddis/Battle Honours version.

Brigade Models Dog Carts with either GWM or Brigade models miniatures.

Really great models of dog carts. From what I have read, however, light color dogs tended to draw fire more so than darker ones.

Thank you. Good to know about canine colours. Do you have a particular reference?

All the best,

I don't know about Belgian dogs but the Royal Scots Greys used potassium permanganate to darken their horses before embarking for France in 1914 (from the Marquess of Anglesey's history of the British cavalry).

*Mud* would work to darken the dogs in emergency, as could boot polish. Since IIRC most of the big working breeds in Europe tend to be lighter-colored, I'd expect most dogs to be pale at the start. Unless the Belgians were using Newfoundland Retrievers?

I believe they used Bouvier des Flandres.

But probably used other breeds as well.

I think I bought the Ebor Miniatures ones, but they don't show up on their website.

I think those are WW1 Belgians on the top of the homepage, are they not?
