The Last of the Big Guns

       Having gotten back from Florida refreshed and renewed I sat myself down and finished painting the guns and attendant gunners and then based them and flocked the bases, all in one afternoon! This gives me over thirty guns, in a rules system that envisions maybe two or three to a side, perhaps I went a little overboard? Ah well, it is better to have too much than not enough!

organ guns, a seemingly great idea that kept going nowhere until the 1860's

this is the last of the cannon from the TYW collection,
 all that remains is about sixty Scots Highlanders and 32 Winged Hussars

I have to confess that I really like the way that 
the organ guns and the old-school cannons painted up

with only three limbers any sort of rapid displacement
 of the guns is going to be very problematic!

  1. Organ guns are one of the best things about collecting this era!
