Royal Artillery Gatling Gun

…for a little rat-at-tat-tat!

Actually the sound effect would probably be more like “Chunk-chunk-chunk-chunk… Oooh boogger, she’s jammed!” … or something like that…

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

This gun and crew is from Black Tree Design.

Nice to paint two guys and a gun and be able to say “Another unit: Done!”

Of course now I have to paint another two units of Zulus just to even the odds again…

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Zulus… more maybe more British stuff… or Martians…

Probably British – it seems to have worked it’s way to the front of the workbench.

The plus side of the postal workers lock out (which otherwise is a sad situation all round!) is that the last couple orders currently inbound will be delayed and therefore unable to distract me from my current purpose!


  1. Funny about the lockout implications. I'm in the same boat... waiting for some LotR plastic elves to get started on a Kings of War army... I'm liking the zulu wars stuff... On a semi-related imperialist topic, did you see the plastic Sudanese from Perry?

  2. I have seen the Perry plastic Sudanese... Warlord Games/Empress Miniatures are also releasing some plastic Zulus and British. I'm kind of "meh" on the whole plastic thing... and besides - the Zulu war project is going to keep me busy for some time!! Then there's all the Space:1889 Martian stuff...

    If there was another Colonial/Imperialist setting I'd do next it'd be the Northwest Frontier (of India), the Boer War or the (Canadian) Northwest Rebellion of 1885... Actually the latter two I already have a number of figures for.
