The Victrix kit comes with a lot of options including caissons which I haven't built yet. These plastics are true scale rather than the chunkier heroic scale you see for most figures. The only real drawback is that long pointy things like rifles or cannon plungers are very thin and prone to breakage with normal tabletop wear and tear.
All three gunus used the 9 lbr barrel which means I've got some 6 lbr and howitzer barrels to use for scratch build - may be some new ships.
These will be used for my upcoming Historicon War of 1812 game. The current British force has 12 infantry battalions, 2 calvary units and 6 artillery batteries. They'll also have a few Canadian and even a Portuguese battalion. Portuguese in a War of 1812 game? I should probably mention it's a silly "what-if?" built around a French intervention during the War of 1812
I do recommend the box set for anyone looking to bulk out their British artillery
One really can't have too much artillery, can one?
I think the tally for this entry in 90 points 60 for 12 painted figures and 30 for the three guns.
Well done Miles, now lets see if you can use a calendar properly next week! I like these guns and crew. I find the Victrix figures a lot fussier than the Perry's and broke the rammer on one of my (as yet unfinished) figures. Sounds like truly loopy War of 1812 game, I am looking forward to seeing pictures.
