Second Blog Anniversary part one: Prussians!

It is only by chance that I happened to find out that this trusty blog of mine celebrates its second birthday today. It still crawls faster than it walks and its potty training leaves a little to be desired, but let’s not write it off yet!

So here is the first of two updates with which I’ll mark the event: Prussian artillery.

These artillerymen were a nice change of pace from the Landwehr, although much the same techniques were used. The red was easier to paint than yellow, thankfully.

 

Two of the same packs of cannon meant duplicate crew models.

I think the ramrods were blue in real life, but I think they look better in brown – more contrast. Of course, if the commissionaire does not follow my train of thought I’ll be happy to change it. That’s life!

 

Two cannon and a howitzer.

The guns themselves were painted after the crew was handled – I like to get the tedious parts out of the way first. Still, the bronze contrasts wonderfully with the blue, and it’s a powerful tool for Prussian tabletop generals to make their artillery stand out.

Anyway, that’s that – expect the next blog update in a few hours. Auf wiedersehen!
