This is a Perry 3-pounder and crew that I painted last week. The 3-pounder was extensively used throughout the war and it is good news that Perry have released plenty of these guns with different crews. It was a ncie touch to sculpt this crew in hunting shirts. A Bunker Hill scenario will call for a 3-pounder on the American side and these chaps will do nicely for militia. Apparently the Americans often painted the woodwork of their guns a dull red colour. Dave Woodward has done this very well in the pictures of American 6-pounders that are on the Perry website. All my other American guns are in a natural wood colour, so I decided to stick with that to give the guns in my collection a consistent look. The woodwork here was painted using a base of Games Workshop "Scorched Brown" followed by highlights of GW "Bestial Brown" and then the Foundry "Spearshaft" palette.
Painted June 2007.
