|AE-5 "Amusette and 2 crew" (set of 3 items)|
The Amusette is basically a 1-pound "wall gun" that could probably knock an elephant down. The wood mantle on wheels was often deployed, in theory, on either side of a 3-pound artillery piece as a form of protection for the artillery crew. Hessian jagers also used the wall gun, but since it was part of the Royal Artillery ordinance, I decided to crew the set with British artillerymen instead of jagers.
The mantle is already in production, but I was waiting to start sales until the crew figures were available. The two greens are off on their merry way to the caster and so I anticipate that the amusette set will be available by the end of November 2012.
These are definitely going to be a lot of fun.
The stock code is "AE-5" and will sell for $8.00 per set (2 figures and 1 wheeled mantle). While I'm not overly keen on the idea of "pre-orders", if you are interested in a set or two, then let me know and I will start up a list of buyers. No money required until the figures actually ship.
