SYW Austrian 6pdr Battery

Here is a 6pdr Austrian battery - horses by Front Rank, crew by Crusader and guns/limbers by Zinnfiguren again. I just love those 'sprongs' at the front of the guns (well, I'm not sure what they are called but sprongs sounds the part) into which a metal bar is inserted so that they can be pulled or pushed forwards or backwards. They give the guns character in my mind.


  1. Very nice! Tracks in the mud are top class!

  2. Yep, basing is subtle, but makes the whole thing "click".

  3. I think that the sprongs (good name!) are for the drag ropes rather than a bar. I'm not sure that the matross could get much leverage pushing or pulling on a bar, compared to a set of ropes.
