I started with an old model which may well have been painted as an Austrian gun by the previous owner.
After a quick bleach dip and a bit of cleaning the model is ready for a black undercoat. (I use Halfords Matt black primer)
Its a rather nice model and the barrel even elevates.
The other artillery piece started disassembled in bits.
And after the dip.
I need to cut a pin to make the axle.
I have 6 original Austrian gun crew and these are now undercoated and the leather brown applied. I will need a further 2 figures to make up the gun crew to full strength.
To do like this chap pointing with a map.
It will be a hodge pooch sort if game with British, French, Poles, Nassauers, Prussian, Portuguese and Austrian on the table. Reminds me of my games as youngster.
