Later this week I’m travelling to Lard Island to meet up with Rich and Nick and take some pictures for my war of 1812 book. I was looking through my figures and I saw a gap so I decided to try and get an Artillery team painted up to take with me.
as its only 5 men (well 6 if you include a leader) plus a gun it was in theory a small job. obviously I had forgotten how intricate the Artillery uniforms were during that period and so 4 days after I started I was still working on them. but finally I got them done and today I painted up the limber and gun to complete the team.
I decided to go for the early pattern uniform as it’ll allow me to use the team in and Peninsular games I decide to play
I also decided to buy some new paints from Foundry and I picked up some of there Artillery colours which are lovely, especially the bronze colour I’ve used on the gun barrel.
