Royal Artillery 9-pdr


 I think I'm pretty settled now that my 'big battles' set of choice will be General d'Armee from TooFatLardies. Having played a couple of games of Pickett's Charge I like the mechanism and they fit my vision for the period.

However, these rules do represent artillery batteries at one model per two guns so I would need to bring my Royal Artillery batteries up to three models to represent the six gun battery.


I had already painted a pair of 9-pdr to represent Lloyd's Battery Royal Artillery so on my last order picked up another gun.



The model is the Perry Miniatures British Foot Artillery firing 9 pdr from their Hundred Days range.


One of the resons that I maintain the blog is so that I can check up on the previous palette used and although only a couple of months ago, the old notes did come in handy.

At the same time I also picked up another couple of guns to bring my French batteries up to strength and as I move back to the forces of Napoleon I'll get those two painted up too.


Here is the completed battery represented by all three gun models.

  2. Superb work Paul! Red facings with yellow lacings make these artillerymen pop. Looks like you have more artillery to field to bring your batteries up to full strength.

    1. Thank you Phil, they may as well start the battle in fine fettle, after a few hours they will be covered in mud and stink of rotten eggs ;)
