WOTR Artillery

"Espy thou yonder Elven Mage? Confound him and everyone near him!"
While I wait for figures and bits to complete my Attalids and round up my Space Marines forces (it's a never ending process, isn't it?) I decided to get back into the saddle up painting the stuff I already on hand.

With the four figures from Front Rank painted, my artillery corps is now complete: two guns (counts as great cannons under Warhammer rules) and a volleygun (counts as Helblaster), all that I plan to field in my WOTR/Empire army.

The crew come from three different companies: Perry, Mirliton, and of Front Rank, who provided the Master Engineer. The guns come from Perry, Mirliton, and Artizan.

I know artillery crew were "civilians" during the WOTR period, but I have chosen to depict them as a "professional" body, with more a more uniformed look than my other units.

Let's see how they perform then...

Colorful and very nice looking units!

Great looking weapons and crews. Especially the Hellblaster. Reminds me of the days when Warhammer stuff was a bit more realistic in size.

Thanks, guys. I hope to keep the historical look as much as I can, while still incorporating some fun, fantasy elements.
