Another set of AWI Hessians, this time a Perry set of metals featuring 4 artillery men and a "Swedish" four pounder. As with my other troops from Hesse-Kassel (grenadiers and jaegers to date), these are perfectly suitable for SYW as the Hessians adopted Prussian style uniforms for both conflicts. These were lovely figures and a joy to paint.
|Side view of the piece. Poor photo but the carriage is a very dark blue.|
|In action shot. As always the Perry crews look like they are actually working the piece.|
|Ground level shot from behind. Note the drag ropes for prolonging the piece once unlimbered.|
|Lovely crisp details on the belts and packs|
