RP No 57 - FIW British Limbers and Artillery


Last week I posted the French Artillery and Limbers, so today we have the Brits!!! As I said in the previous post these figures were posted on the Annalouge Painting Challenge in early February and I've only just around to post them. The figures are all Essex Miniatures and as you can see there's some guns missing, I definitely painted them but can't find the buggers, I think Fran's pinched them!!!! So that's a few things I'll be buying at Salute, then I'll probably find them!!
The guns and limbers will be used for my French Indian War rules, although I've not worked out yet how the artillery is going to work?? But in a nice long line, I'm sure they'll make a very tempting target for the French and their Indian allies.

I'm off down the A2/M2 to Faversham,  tomorrow evening for another playtest of BLB2, with fellow Reject Richard, so look out for another report on the rules, we're playing an attack on a small town, so finally we can get some infantry melee going!!!

Cheers
Ray

  6. Very nice work Ray. 15 mil can be difficult to paint to a good standard and you've really nailed them.

  9. Excellent idea having detachable guns on a separate base. Do you have individual gunner figures you can plonk onto the unlimbered gun base (or is that something you've covered in a previous post?...ooops!)

    I love your basing, too. It's great!

    1. Just makes it a little easier for skirmish games and Yep that's the plan, I've got quite a few bags of the blighters ready to paint up for both sides.

  12. Impressive output again Ray. Think you have enough artillery there (once you find the missing guns) to equip the entire British Army!

  13. Nice shading on the horses - really brings out the tack nicely. I'm always very lazy when it comes to limbers. I hardly ever use them. It's a shame because they look so great on the table - particularly yours.

    MASSIVE QUANTITIES too!

  18. That's a lot of stuff. I'll have to try that excuse myself "I definitely painted them, but . . . "

  19. I like these big bulky horses Ray and this is an impressive display here. I think you're pretending to have lost those weapons so you'll have an excuse to spend money at Salute!!

  20. Excellent painting Ray. Really like the look of the Essex heavy horses.

    Well done

  27. I really like how your horses came out, mine never look so good.
