Murawski Miniatures Paul Hicks Polish artillery

 Just finished my first battery of Duchy of Warsaw Polish artillery
 All in all I am very happy with them
 I used extra figures as I prefer larger crews
 Paul's figures are very good and a joy to paint
 The detialing on the guns is superb as well
 Gave the gunners off-white trousers
 Think the uniform is rather fetching
 S&S 5.5inch French howitzer
 Green watering can is not for sale.
 French 8lb gun
 Detailing of on the barrel
 Master gunner
 Side view of the battery
4 crew and a gun ( unpainted although I do undertake some commissions) are available from my good self at the cost of £11 each.

Perry French artillery

 Not my greatest work to be honest
 And I really made a meal of the Guard horse
 Why are the wheels on Perry guns so hard to get right?
 The line horse artillery are ok
 Prefer more crew as well
 Four jsut looks wrong to me
 I like the guy aiming though
And I think I did a good job on the base of the Guard foot artillery.
Hope you like them.

Napoleonic Prussians

 My first completed army! 1813-15 Prussians
 These are the grenadiers - Perry fusiliers but you cant tell the difference
 I like these a lot
 Skirmishers bases - 2 triangles so can join the line as well

 Flag by GMB of course
 Below my heavy cavalry brigade commanders
 ON the left Perry, right Foundry
 Perry foot and horse artillery limbers
 Perry howitzer with Foundry crew

 Foundry Landwehr cavalry
 I personally think the Foundry Prussians are fantastic

 Some lovely facial details
 I hate doing lance penants

 Foundry heavy brigade - dragoons and cuirassiers
 horse artillery with captured French guns

 Foundry hussars, Perry command and Silesian Uhlans

 Foundry and Calpe reservists - one battalion painted as fusiliers
 Mounted officers for the reservists

 Foundry line infantry ( 2 musketeers and 1 fusiliers)

 Calpe and Foundry landwehr - 2 battalions of each
 Calpe volunteer Jaeger
 Blucher and staff - foundry
