Sometimes one can get ahead of one's own goals. Actually in this hobby that is quite easily done unless you have an iron discipline, and, unless the multitude of comments from fellow wargamers are not understated,that discipline is VERY uncommon (and mostly unknown in me)
And so I got ahead of myself and did up Allied unit(s) before getting to the many Prussian units I have primered and wanting/needing to paint.
However, in my defense, the Brunswicker black uniform and falling horsehair plume is way too cool not to do immediately....
As you can see the Perry metal crew has lots of character and action moving the gun up for redeployment; very unique among the many sculpts of crew standing sedately with an upright rammer (not that there is anything wrong with that!)
And while the base does seem large, it covers the large 'footprint' of ground this battery would occupy with all the accompanying caissons, limbers, and the seven other guns of the battery.
