The four guns in my French army, all made by Front Rank Figurines, are wonderfully detailed models that were a joy to paint.

French gun carriages were initially painted red in the eighteenth century, but later went to steel-blue. I preferred the red colour, as shown in the Cimier postcard (below left), so that is the way I've done them!

The gunners are nicely detailed. I could only fit three on each base, so I've given my other two gunners (an officer and a worker with a wheelbarrow) their own small vignette base (below right).
