Something other than a red coat or a tartan one. This hopefully represents one of the 10 three pounder guns manned by the Royal Artillery at Culloden. The crew is actually a set of Hanoverian gunners from Minden Miniatures but with a few minor alterations. I think they look the part.

I originally bought these to try and bring some variety to the infantry Battalions. I had'nt realised they were all dismounted cavalry and to see them waddling around the battlefield in very large boots would have been rather demeaning. So I went for the vignette option given that they were taken from an illustration in the now iconic Haythornthwaite 'ECW' book.

They are supposed to be Parliamentary officers and come from the unbeatable Bicorne ECW range.

Finished! I'm working my way across the Jacobite front line at Culloden on the basis of one figure equals 20 real combatants. The Camerons apparently fielded about 600 men on the day and were the largest Clan contingent so here they are represented by 32 models. Each base has 8 figures so the Govt Battalions will all be 24 strong. It rather puts them on the large side but they look the part. Stewarts of Appin next on the list - thankfully there were only about 150 of them.
