SYW Era Artillery Equipment Preview (greens)

I have received some pictures of the work in progress of the new range of 18th Century artillery equipment and train that we are adding to the Fife & Drum Miniatures range. The first batch of pix include a munitions wagon (wicker sides and canvas cover), a pontoon wagon, two different Prussian limbers and Prussian 3/6/12 pounders and 7-pound howitzer. In a late post I will show the pix of the French 8-pound and 12-pound artillery pieces. They are made in 1/56 scale and will be compatible with Minden Miniatures and Fife & Drum Miniatures.

I'm having problems resizing the pictures on my iPad, but if you click the picture, you will be able to see the full pix.

  4. Yes, what Greg said! Any idea when you'll have these in stock and what the pricing might be?

  5. I am guessing that these new pieces could be in production by the end of April 2013. The master and production molds have to be made and then te parts get cast and shipped from the UK to te USA. Pricing should be comparable to the existing artillery pieces, although te 3-pounder might be a little less.

  6. The Reich Duchy of Beerstein clearly needs to update the old artillery train...

  9. Fantastic. Please can you do French and British limbers. A good selection of limber/wagon horses would also be great. I have tried the front rank horses and they seem a bit rotund.

  10. We already have a British limber in the range and the French limbers that I've seen look like the Prussian limbers, both having a "Y" shaped frame.
