I'm currently putting together some Danish troops for the WSS / GNW. However 1 piece of info I can't locate is the colour of the Danish artillery pieces. Any help appreciated

Red woodwork with yellow metallic parts.

HvS. Great stuff & perfectly timed – I'm in themiddle of some 10mm Danes for the WSS and have just ordered the artillery.

Much brighter than the "barn red"/red oxide used by some other European armies, and by the Continentals during the AWI.

I always understood the barrel was "yellow" metal as well, as per the Saxon artillery of the late 17th/early 18th Centuries.
