Guard Foot Artillery - Completed

“In most battles the Guard Artillery is the deciding factor since having it always at hand, I can take it wherever it is needed.” -Napoleon Bonaparte

In my House Rules the Guard Artillery are allowed to re-roll 4 dice when firing. I’m looking forward to trying them out on the table.

Would it me unmilitary of me to say they strike me as 'glamorous'? Lovely figures and paintwork in any case. Were I to embark down the Napoleonics road again, I'm pretty certain my choice would be 20mm rather than the 15mm miniatures I collected and painted at one time.

Best Regards,

Stokes

Now all they need is some support from the Guard Grenadiers! Excellent little group and worthy of manning an original HH cannon.

The gun is small, isn't it, Ian. My Guard Foot artillery get my Hinchliffe 20mm 12 pdrs - only the best for them. It's funny Marcus Hinton wasn't very good at guns. I do like Newline guns with Hinton crews - they give the same slightly underscale look as Hinton originals - or is that a sotr of shortbread?

Stokes - I'm not sure about 'glamorous' but in close up I notice that they all look grumpy, I should try painting smiles!

Matt - yes I know, I'm working myself up for the Grenadiers, maybe next year.

Clive - I do have a couple of larger guns (not sure who by) but I felt I had to use the HH stuff as I had it. Any lack in size can be made up for with those 4 extra die rolls!
