My first battery of Prussian artillery is now complete. This one represents an eight-gun 6pdr foot battery. The figures are again old Foundry/Casting Room and the cannon are Elite. I have two further batteries, one of 12pdrs and one horse battery of 6pdrs, plus a few battalion guns (in theory one for each brigade).
Andy Copestake made a comment on his blog regarding people moaning about painting horses. I agree with him; horses are easy but cannon and the assorted paraphernalia are what I hate the most. I will not be buying limbers for this battery or indeed any of the others as I plan to press gang my Seven Years War Prussian limbers into service.
