Today I am pleased to show the completed Napoleonic era Bavarian artillery team. The figures are produced by Franznap Miniatures and are just exquisitely sculpted. I have painted them to match my old school glossy Hinton Hunt collection, but in truth these do stand out, as they are far more finely sculpted and animated than their older compadres.
|To the rear are the artillery drivers which have already graced these pages. In the left foreground is a command vignette, and to the right, the artillery battery unlimbered and deployed for battle.
|The artillerists are depicted in campaign dress, the main difference being the trousers/overalls worn instead of the usual dress pants.
|Micron ink pens were used to draw the details on the map.
Next up will be a battalion of grenadiers made by a true old school figure manufacturer - Garrison Miniatures. The figures were kindly provided by Wellington Man, to help meet my needs for the upcoming battle of Vimiero Village. The Battle to the north of Vimiero is progressing beautifully and balanced on a knife's edge.
