Some oldies but goodies

Foundry French horse artillery with howitzer

 For some reason I like limber teams. I think its something to do with Peter Gilder.
 If you look carefully you'll see that every figure is different.
 I've also used the French in camp set to add "volunteer" labour
 As well as some gunners to one of the teams.
 You'll note the French greanadier on the right now a gunnery seargeant
 Not sure if the guy at the back should have been smoking a pipe
 I really like these figures as so full of character
 I like all the other bits you get with the guns as well
 The bases are deliberately huge and are influenced by Barry Hilton
 More pictures of the horse artillery
 Finally a close up of the gun being moved by hand


  1. What a superb piece. The chap with the pipe wants to be careful where he taps out his tobacco!

  2. Are these 28s? If so, well done - you don't often see this kind of vignette effect in that scale.

  3. A great work! Bases and painting are superb!

  4. Awesome!! Really like these.

  5. Those look fantastic food for thought for me!!

  6. Awesome! Very inspirational, love the basing especially.

  7. Love the artillery bases with each done as an individual vignette. Wonderful figures in a full range of poses - it's how you'd like All your artillery on the table to look like - in an ideal setup of course. Truly inspirational stuff Roger.


  8. Thanks for all the nice comments. Really appreciated.
