Hi Guys
I've uploaded some pictures of some Perry Miniatures Dutch Belgian Horse artillery I've based up for LASALLE:
Comments welcomed.

Dear Trailape
I am pleased that you used the French AnXI 6-pdrs and not British block trails. The colour of the pieces is still a problem. It was not until after 1815 that the grey paint was used. The Netherlands artillery were still in shades of French Artillery Green (Khaki Green), Brown etc…

It is sensible on a wargame to have them a different colour to the French to avoid confusion due to the similarity.

Hi Stephen
I only recently became aware of the 'Gun Colour', but the paint was applied so, 'meh'.
I guess my gunners were just a tad pro-active.

Very nice job, good to see some one else doing the Dutch Belgians…such an interesting army.

Dear Trailope
The guns must have been issued from the garrison of Ostend or Mons and had "acquired" British Board of Ordnance paint. You know how gunners can be. Anything not nailed down is fair game. Officers like nice paintwork.

Darn straight!
I recall coming back from a few 6 week field exercises' and washing down 5.5 Inch Guns at 0200hrs for a 0800hrs inspection before the Regiment could 'stand down'!
