Fluter, flutter go the butterfly wings as another couple of diverse items roll off the production line.
Item number one is the second limber for the British in Egypt.
Item number two is a by-product of item number one in that they are are the gun crew from the Victrix British artillery sets. Now I have six sprues each with one gun, one limber and five crew and from these I will make my six British in Egypt limbers and have six guns for other British Napoleonic projects. But I only use four crew with my gun sets and this would mean that I would have six crew left over. Luckily I have a need for gunners for another little project.
Readers may remember that for the War of 1812 blockhouse that I made back in May (https://stracmark.blogspot.com/2018/05/war-of-1812-blockhouse.html) I had cobbled together a gun from various bits that needed some crew. Well these are the crew.
Four of them will crew the gun. The officer and the sixth leftover, which will also be made up as an officer, will serve as artillery officers in the different British projects because I always find that artillery command is neglected in our wargames - hopefully this rectifies that.
