Finally got these chaps finished. Brought so long ago the shop that sold them to me has been out of business for six months. I had actually forgotten I had them until I unpacked a box of crap left untouched since we moved to the country three years ago. It was a little like Christmas. Also found some Perry French Marshals and a pack of Senior Officers of various regiments lounging about and a whole lot of woodland Indians I had got for a stalled War of 1812 project. Hopefully not stalled for too much longer.
Anyways, I used to have my artillery mounted on 40mm wide bases but went with 50mm wide for this unit. I think it works a lot better.
They are a mixture of sets FN17, 18 and 19.
I like three to four gun batteries for Napoleonics. They look more like an artillery battery to me than a single gun model or perhaps two stuck on the table. My next artillery project is a unit of French Guard Horse artillery. I am going with Elite Miniatures guns (when I order them next week), Bircorne Minitaures crew and probably Hinchliffe Limbers because I have about thirty of them from a bulk lot I got about twenty years ago off a wargamer who was retiring from the hobby.

Great looking battery and excellent paint job sir!
Thanks, I have been hammering the painting in the last few weeks. The stuff wont get done if I don’t do it:)
These look fantastic. I’ve just finished painting up the same packs – they are lovely little sculpts and you’ve certainly done them justice.
Thanks Giles. They are nice sculpts. Very easy to paint.
