|The British artillery park consists of two heavy and two light 6-lbr guns, two 3-lbr guns, and a light howitzer.|
As with the Americans, the crews are a mix of Miniature Figurines, Custom Cast, and Musket Miniatures figures.
|The Hessian artillery park consists of two light 6-lbr guns.|
The crew of the left has three Miniature Figurines and one Hinchliffe figures
while the crew on the right is all Wall Miniatures figures.
|My only limber (for now) is from Custom Cast via Iron Brigade Miniatures and the Lost Battalion Miniatures.|
Finally I thought to show you a modification I made to several Miniature Figurines castings to act as battery commanders for some of my American and British "batteries." MiniFigs has in its AWI line a casting (AWI-31, Glover's 14th Continental Marine [sic] officer) that is reloading a pistol, holding it directly in front of him. Lord Sterling, my good wargaming buddy, had modified this figure into an officer holding a telescope. I emulated his idea by using a pair of pliers to straighten and reshape the pistol into a telescope and to bend the arms up so it appears he's looking through the telescope. I think they turned out rather well.
That's all for this month. Next month I hope to get the 14th Continental Regiment painted to complete my initial goal of 12 infantry units per side. Then I've got the von Lengerke (Hessian) Grenadier Battalion and Smallwood's Maryland Regiment in the painting queue.
