|Minden Miniatures SYW French 12-pounder artillery battery.|
Here is a diorama that I made a few years ago of a French artillery battery circa the Seven Years War. All figures are Minden Miniatures and all equipment is from the Fife and Drum artillery equipment range. The French 12-pound Valliere System cannon (AE-010) is a beautiful model with lots of intricate barrel detail “bling” on it.
In the diorama I had to make the ram rods longer to account for the longer barrel length. This is done easily with a piece of wire and some green epoxy putty to make the swab and push ends of the ram rod.
