Yes, but unfortunately the group of three figures who appear to be the battery command group aren't. They are not wearing the artillery uniform (have red facings instead of black) nor do their helmets have the artillery ball on top.

I wondered about that myself Jim, but I think that they might be divisional or regimental commanders positioning the artillery. Magnificent either way. One of my favorite battles to refight!

It is a very well-done diorama and I've been in contact with the diorama building crew, particularly about the painting of the figures and the equipment.

The 3 guys in spiked helmets are officers/soldiers of the infantry, which often operated together with the artillery – which was one of the major factors of the Prussian/German victory in 1870/71. I published a small snippet about the Prussian artillery exercise at link

The staff shown is a nice mixture of Bavarian and Prussian figures, obviously of the 3rd army led by the Prussian crown prince (OOB at link )

There's another diorama showing French artillery in combat order; the two artillery dioramas accompany the wonderful larger diorama of Froeschwiller.
