Looking for some help.

What color was British Artillery Carriage?
What color was the Scottish Artillery Carriage?

Thanks in advance.

So we are saying for the British it was grey.

Have we ANY direct evidence on Jacobite gun colors? Memoirs? Paintings? Orders? Or is it all a matter of "these guns were captured from the British and therefore must be GREY, while these guns were shipped from France and therefore must be RED"?

Any other input? Thanks in advance.

It seems the jacobites had scraped the barrel to assemble any artillery at all. I could not see that they spent time painting that sorry selection of guns.
I try to use my guns for a number of 18th century conflicts so I paint them all blue-greyish :)
