A new weapon for the British Infantry of the 1860′s is taking shape on the sculpting table of Perry Miniatures, an Armstrong 12 Pounder breech-loading field gun.
The great thing about these WiPs is the variety of sculpts Perry are using for the gun crew, allowing them to be assembled and fielded in a manner that shows the gun off in various stages of firing. This means that, should you choose to field a full battery of them, they can be laid out in a way that makes them look more like a diorama, giving the army a bit more life to it.
How do you think this gun is looking? Can you tell us about its history?
