Today I have finished 2 Krupp field guns and 8 crew. 4 Crew for each gun. I did have to email another blogger to make sure the colour of the gun carriage and gun barrels were correct. It was a bit of a surprise when he said they were. Well I always think the worst and expect to be wrong so I was delighted to be on this occasion correct!
Clearly these are Egyptian Army Krupp's and Egyptian crew. The white uniforms and red fezzes indicate that. I am not sure if Matt has any Mahdi Crew for the guns time I am sure will tell. And if so I look forward to painting them.
The Guns were easy to put together, 4 pieces. 2 wheels, 1 Barrel and one gun carriage. So assembly was reasonably swift and straightforward. Painting was also straightforward, the guns were a simple grey and the crew were painted first cream and then hi-lighted sufficient times to reach a white top coat. So as figure painting goes very straightforward with no complications.
As I said I would do a group shot of them all the last 2 pics are just that, these 2 guns and crews and the previously painted mounted officers.
So with luck I will be able to get some of my own done ready for a Saturday post.... Probably a pair of Wolf Runners for Secrets of he Third Reich! But I may well get sidetracked.
So take care, have fun and paint like crazy when you get a spare moment.
All the Best Clint
