I have spent the past week focusing on building out my Prussian artillery park, adding new gun crews, matrosses, limbers etc. All figures are Minden Miniatures with Fife and Drum Miniatures cannons.

Check out my blog for more pictures (a lot more):



Each of my cannon are mounted on 60mm by 120mm MDF bases and I add two laborers, a four horse team limber, and an ammunition wagon. This provides a good sense of how deep the rear area of an artillery battery was.

Fantastic work as always, I like the way you use up space a artillery battery would.

Now here, I finally found the answer to one of my earlier questions. What do the gunners and workers look like when they have stripped off their heavy woolen coats and are swearing and sweating in the hot sun serving the guns. Thank you Der Alte Fritz

BTW, do I spy a few white coated party crashers coming through the field on the far right?

Exquisite miniatures and superb terrain.

Excellent. A more realistic use of space. This makes moving artillery quickly to a suitable spot much more difficult--as it should.

Oops, I forgot to crop the right side of the photo so a few AWI riflemen are lurking in the background from a previous photo shoot.

Very nice. Thanks for sharing.

Nicely done and outstanding figs/terrain as always – I agree that we tend to give SYW artillery a little more tactical flexibility when gaming than they actually had
