The Guns

Some artillery support for my British Imperial/colonial forces

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)

Royal Artillery 7 pounder from Black Tree Design.

Martian Colonial Field Artillery. The crew are from RAFM. The carriage is of unknown origin – I got it in a trade (without the actual gun barrels). The gun barrel is a spare from a Renegade Miniatures British Napoleonic artillery pack (the packs are supplied with THREE different barrels!?)

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Hmmmm… Zulus? British? Martians…? Hard to say – the workbench is mighty cluttered with all three at the moment (along with a few more gladiators!)


  1. Love the guns!

    I'm painting some War of 1812 1/72 plastic cannon from HaT at the moment and starting to lose my mind. Eight pieces per cannon, very soft, bendy plastics that won't melt with regular model glue but is so bendy that the locktite plastix glue keeps shearing loose while I assemble other parts and paint.

    It has been awhile since I've had the urge to throw anything (maybe a Rodin SE-5 biplane in 2003 or 2004? before that an Esci Panzer 4 H with skirts that would not fit in the 1980s) but I'm pretty close.

    What a series of terrible manufacturing decisions. By contrast, Imex cannons are hard plastic and have four pieces. Won't be buying any more HaT cannons.

    But your stuff looks lovely and I'm stealing the blue paint scheme.

  2. Nice artillery. Painting and basing looks great.

  3. Really nice guns, the work on the base is really good too.
