I've been getting on well with my Crimean project - but lurking in the wings was a problem ! - Stretlets don't do field artillery ! - they do siege artillery for the Russians and the British - but no field artillery ! - Blast ! . However I found that Emhar do a suitable box for the Russians , so that's them sorted ! (strange box artwork used by Stretlets)
What to do for the British ? - I recalled that the same type of guns were used as in the Napoleonic wars so I bought a box of 'A Call To Arms' British Foot artillery which has four of these very nice guns - now for the crews .
I checked up on the British Siege Artillery box and found that the crew were more suited for field artillery than the heavy guns that came with them.
So picking through them I've come up with enough crew for two guns - I'm rather pleased , I did think I might have to buy in some metal figures to overcome the problem . So having cleaned them up I'll get them sprayed tomorrow and start painting them .
