Spanish Napoleonic Artillery #4


A fourth and final battery of Spanish foot artillery  rumbles off the painting table. 


This time it is a heavy, 12 pounder battery. 


Brigade Games French 12 pounders  were used for the ordnance. 


The bulk of the crew are Brigade games as well.


I use 4 crew figures per stand for heavy artillery (versus three for others); the extra figures came from  surplus officer and standard bearer figures from my Three Armies order. Flag once again is by Adolfo Ramos.

  1. Nicely done, and Spanish 12-pounders are probably the best part of most Spanish Napoleonic armies.

    1. Thanks, John. The blue is probably a bit to deep and intense as has been discussed before, but I can live with it!

    1. Thanks Garry; they are the "Real Cuerpo de Artilleria", so they should be Regal! :-)

    1. Thanks, Iain; it looks like only about half of the infantry will be in white by the time I finish with the Swiss, Irish, Militia, and Light Infantry!

    1. Thanks, James. The artillery flag is sort of unique, and Adolfo makes one. Plus, I needed 2 extra figures for my 12 lbers anyway!
