With my small order from Eureka last week I thought I would take a look at their light artillery/battalion guns for SYW/WAS. This is from the WAS range from memory, noted as a 3lb-er. Like the rather groovy musketeer girly girl sample the detail is economical but not worryingly so.
For someone who isn't into counting every little detail and spends more time looking at his toys at arms length than under a magnifying glass then I think this is fine for me.
The barrel looks good and the shield motif is large enough for the hyper detailers to toss their magic. I'll admit to farting about with painting the barrel trying out different ideas, in reality it is probably a mil smaller in diameter?
Barrel sits a little crooked, I could have fixed this up in the gluing but to be honest I didn't notice until I saw the photo!
And the reverse angle for all you reverse angle enthusiasts. I was originally going to paint the carriage white! Quite frankly even if that is the original colour of the Hesse Cassoulet artillery it wouldn't stay white for long once in the field. I contacted the Erzherzog and explained, the heads of army were consulted and couldn't decide if they wanted a light powder blue or equivalent in grey green so I decided on a light powder blue wash over a glazes of grey green and black.
