French 4pdr’s from the french 1809 army pack.

I pulled these out of the lead pile as a test unit for 10mm napoleonics. I have based these onto the Kallistra 30mm x 40mm plastic bases and first thought the base was perhaps too big, but with the figures added, itn looks about right.

The army pack gives 3 guns and crews, so the frontage here is 90mm, though in actual gaming, I may well drop to a two model battery depending on the size and demands of the scenario,

These were primed grey, block painted, washed and then highlighted.

Nifty. May I suggest a black dot at the muzzle to indicate where the shot comes out?

If the figure will allow I always drill out the muzzle a little and then paint it black. Just adds a small bit to the look.

My effort was stabbing myself down the side of the thumb nail, and snapping the bit that the vise was holding. Embarrassed

However.....I DO find that they've most useful if you crush a fingernail, (however you fancy I don't want to see) and end up with a 'blood blister' under the nail...(Painful)
I've used a vise, with a 0.7mm or a 0.5mm bit to VERY slowly drill through the nail, until I've released the blood, without going into the skin underneath.

Instant relief.....But don't try this at home children, without supervision, or unless you're a complete twerp, like me. (Again...sadly, the above is quite true....3 or 4 times, and counting Embarrassed)

Cheers - Phil
