Empress British 7pdr
My first real construction project and a little daunting due to a lack of any real reference material. Being a bit of a novice to such things I hadn't realised that there was a standard colour for artillery pieces (apparently a light grey for the British) fortunately those good people at the Wargames Foundry actually do a British Gun Grey palette!
A useful piece of reference if not totally in line with the sculpting on the figures.
For some reason I felt the need to actually drill the barrel to give it more depth! It just seemed to make sense to me.
