Home Cast Artillery.

Got some new molds off EBay and so am now able to do a complete gun and crew.

The wheels are complete swines to cast , took about five attempts to get two cast up perfectly, sorry for the shine on these figures but we had a brief glimpse of the sun just as I was photographing them.

The uniforms are not 100% correct - they should have turn backs - thinking my SYW  is going to be Quasi-SYW . The Officer is very useful and castings of him could be appearing in other guises and the gunners as Engineers.


  1. One of the tricks I have heard of for doing the wheels is to drill a small air vent in the middle of each spoke. I am going to try this next time I do some wheel casting.

    The gunners are useful. I am planning to add a tray carrying a bottle and glasses to the guy carrying the cannister round and adding him as a valet to my commanders staff.

    1. Oddly enough, I was thinking the same thing last weekend while converting gunners to engineers...

  2. What a good idea for a generals valet.

  3. Why would your Imagi-Nation be restricted to the 19th C.?

  4. Nice gun team; very versatil eposes and ripe for conversion
