Austrian Artillery


As I said earlier; my 7YW Austrian army is coming along grand! As I have two 3 gun batteries of arty, of which half is ready and the other half primed and awaiting a pj, I needed some limbers. My bits box delivered me two limber-teams, of sorts... I found one complete limber and team from the Revell 7YW Austrian arty set and one half team, I cannibalised two of it's horses for a different project ages ago. Now I based these on ad-hoc bases and here's the end result!

two horse galloper gun team:

I left the guns separate on both the firing and limber bases so here's the limbers with the gun added

 I hope you like them just as much as I did!

Cheers Sander

My 7YW Austrian army is coming along nicely. A while back I've based all models for the Austrians I had lying about and am now by and by basing, coating and painting them. The figures pictured below are a bit of a benchmark for me. They are actually pewter Fine Scale Factory Prussian Cuirassiers which must have been lying here for about 10 years... Finally I have come round to painting them as a generic Austrian Cuirassier regiment. I know these are not my best ever, I have cut corners where possible and as such am not overly proud of them but each time you finish a project that has been bugging you for such a long time you just can't help feeling good about yourself ;-)

So here they are

Cheers Sander
