With 4 regiments of Foote, a number of Highlanders, several cavalry units and Dragoons already in my Scots forces, it was clearly time to add some artillery as well.
The crew yielded opportunities for some more Tartan painting!
If the cannon balls don't suffice, we will fart in your general direction!
Both the crew and guns are once again Old Glory 25's.
The earlier groups were crewing Sakers, the ECW equivalent of Medium guns (roughly 6 pounders). Here are a pair each of Culverins (heavy guns, probably roughly 12 lbers)), and Falconets (light guns, lijely 1-3 pounders).
The spare pieces will be used with additional crew figures yet to be painted.
More tartan opps!
The Scots now have quite a bit of ordnance of their own!
Quite a fine array of guns, Peter.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Jon; probably more than enough fopr most games already!Delete
Ach, bonnie guns Peter! You and Tartans....how things change....ReplyDelete
Thanks, Joe! The Tartan comment was of course somewhat tongue in cheek! :-)Delete
Plenty of artillery all looking rather good.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Peter. The early guns definitely have quite a heft tothem!Delete
Nice array of 'Sassenach' destroyersReplyDelete
Thank you Gary!Delete
Great guns and gunners.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Gary. We will see if they prove as ineffective on the tabletop as ECW ordnance often does!Delete
Very nicely done Peter. The grey guns seem nicely attuned to the dour Scottish dress of the period, while the others give everything a splash of colour.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Lawrence. From what I recall, during the ECW carriages were most often painted grey or with red iron Oxide (Barn Red), or just oiled wood (some sources say the Scots used Pine Tar too!).Delete
Splendid artillery, lovely guns and gunners Peter!ReplyDelete
