Parliamentarian Artillery (Again)
So here are my final planned Parliamentarian figures: two minions, crews and limbers. Figures from PP, the gun is listed as light gun.
I must confess that I wasn't totally happy with my cannons. Historically the metalwork was most probably black, but it just looked much too flat. So I decided to paint these differently. I decided to use Foundry blackened barrel. I have two shades of the paint, the lighter version being used for the wheel tyres (my thinking being that the paint would be more worn), and the darker version being used for the carriage and barrel metalwork. I am much happier with this painting scheme, so much so I revisited my entire artillery train and redid them to match.
Limbers are Naismith with a PP dragoon horse holder.
