Boom Boom

My latest classic napoleonic unit has been completed. This French Line Artillery unit are all original crisp castings and were nice to paint.  

I am however uncertain of the manufacturer of the guns. They are nice models and have a separate axle that runs under the carriage.  This is the same as the classic 20mm Hinchcliffe artillery.  Wellington Man has suggested that they are Warrior Miniatures.  You can see an example of WM blog.

The extra artillery will come in handy as my French forces are outnumbered by Allied army.

These have turned out very nicely indeed!

Yep, straight from the pages of Napoleonic Wargaming. A very handsome battery and crew.

You've done a great job with these Mark. They are some of my favourite HH figures with the air-guitar rammer man being top of the list!

Very nice! The paint job shows up the details well.
Perhaps that is Jimmy Page's ancestor?

Nice job Mark. The problem with gun models is there's no space for a catalogue number so they are almost impossible to identify.

Wellington Man said...

That is a very formidable looking battery, Mark. Beautifully painted.
Definitely Warrior guns!
