More Paraguayan Artillery

The Great Paraguayan War was not a war in which field artillery played a big role and these two Paraguayan gun sets complete the field artillery I am intending to join the Paraguayan army.



There will be more Paraguayan guns, but they will be heavy siege pieces that were positioned within the fortresses around which many of the campaigns were fought. But I have over spent my gaming budget this month, so these sets will be ordered a little later in the year. 



Next up is another Brazilian set.

  1. I just love the mix of clothing that these chaps are wearing, which really adds to the look of the whole. A conflict that I may get around to gaming one day...

    1. The budget is a little less important now that I am back to five day weeks, but I have spent more than I had allowed for the month.

  4. Lovely stuff Mark, and I particularly like the figure in the traditional Paraguayan chiripa (I had to look that up).

    1. Yes they provide a nice bit of variation - I rather like the chap blowing on the linstock to keep the spark allight.

  5. Another lovely looking gun and crew…
    But manning a gun wearing a chiripa and bare feet ūüė¨…health and safety nightmare…

    All the best. Aly

    1. So true, Aly. I have often pondered how the human race has managed to survive the 4 million years before we invented health and safety.

  6. Splendid looking artillery piece and crew! You've stormed through this project, I'm not surprised you've overspent!

    1. Thanks Iain. While the project does seem to have gone fast, I started it back in March last year…
