SYW Austrian Artillery Goes Into Action

This evening I was scrolling through some of the 13,000 plus pictures that are on my desktop computer and stumbled across this series of an Austrian 12-pounder getting ready to go into action. I thought that they deserved to have a second look by the readers of this blog.

The artillery horses and the driver are from RSM miniatures. The limber and 12-pounder are Berliner Zinnfiguren models. The artillery crewmen and laborers are from Minden Miniatures.

  1. Superb, love this fantastic ammunition cart especially...

  2. What a treat. The whole battery together is very impressive .

  3. That's a nice looking piece on its own, but it looks great as a battery.
