I'm currently building a Montrose Scotch/Irish army and am about to paint the artillery. Can anyone tell me what color the artillery carrages and whether the barrels were iron or brass.
Thanks in advance….

Depends on the ordinance ……Montrose had both iron and brass guns……also had some that were bound in leather!

As to carriages ……take your pick… standard colours….I have pitched ones(Blackened wood) to represent guns captured from the frugal covenenters and painted examples…red and yellow I think? For the foreign pieces landed at Aberdeen and Montrose.

Fill your boots basically!!

I belive that Coventer carrages were treated with tar to preseve the wood rather than decorated. Probably

tather than the black of pitch. I think that Montrose's guns would be the same.
