Military tactics before WW1 failed to keep pace with advances in technology. These advances, particularly on the Western Front in Europe, allowed the creation of strong defensive systems such as trenches, while barbed wire, artillery and machine guns made crossing the ground in between, ‘no-mans-land’, extremely difficult. It was into this that soldiers of the major powers on the Western Front, the Germans, the French and the British, found themselves placed in 1914, armed only with a rifle, bayonet and grenades.
From 1914 the British Empire Force included the Canadians, Australians and New Zealanders. In 1917, the United States also entered the war.
Based on the uniforms of the time, our Minifig Soldiers with high quality printed uniform design, can be equipped with a wide range of custom 3D printed headgear, weapons and accessories, to recreate your story through the trenches and across the battlefields of the Western Front.
