End The English Civil War With A Cannon Blast

January 12, 2013 by brennon

I have recently been watching a few shows about the English Civil War (specifically a lot of Time Team, God I love that show…) and so seeing this awesome looking Cannon Crew from Empress Miniatures might have hit a bit of a shiny nerve…

English Civil War Saker Cannon

The cannon uses the exact design used during the period and even bears a seal atop it showing it was a gift to Charles when he was Prince. It’s great to see this level of historical depth in miniatures and the sculpts aren’t half bad on the crewmen either.

I can see a fair few Roundheads moaning over the brow of that hill. Load the cannons!

What do you think?
