Austrian Artillery Piece
Well, with possibly the last throw of the dice before our baby is due to arrive later this month, I managed to finally finish the Austrian artillery project at the weekend. It's based on plasticard with a frontage of 60mm to allow enough room for the crew. Each figure was pinned in place for a secure fitting (for handling strength - just in case I game with it one day!). The officer and gunner at the back are seperately based, I added a random scratch built box to add to the diorama feel. If you were wondering why the guy at front left has light blue facings, its because he's a Handlanger. These troops we're the non specialist 'muscle' that moved, and helped, the gunners serve the guns. Trained gunners had the red facings.
