Prussian Guns

I’ve finished the first artillery piece for my Prussian Napoleonic Army for Warlord Games Black Powder, Prussian Foot Artillery running up 6pdr by Perry Miniatures. I’m really happy with the results and managed to mix in a load of different painting techniques.

For assembly I Fixed the Cannon to the base, while painting the crew invidually.

First a zenith prime using Black and Grey Primer from Vallejo.

The Cannon was then airbrused using Vallejo Prussian Blue before a drybrush of Vallejo Dark Blue Grey, Citadel Corvus Black was then used for the metal work followed by a all round wash in Citadel Nuln Oil, For the gun I used Citadel Retributor Armour followed by a wash of Citadel Agrax Earthshade, a highlight of Vallejo Old Gold before a final light wash of Citadel Agrax Earthshade watered down.

The gun crew received the same prime and the sculpts by the Perry’s are absolutely fantastic and a joy to work with.

Again a mix of techniques starting with the main jacket experimenting with colour triads, a base of Vallejo Dark Sea Blue, followed by Vallejo Dark Prussian Blue and finall Vallejo Prussian Blue.

Citadel Contrast Black Template for the boots, Shakos and Belts, the trousers Citadel Contrast Space Wolves Grey which works fantastic with the sculpting and the zenith priming.

The greatcoat was a Basecoat of Vallejo London Grey followed by a wash of Citadel Nuln Oil in addition to Scale 75 Gobi Brown followed by a wash of Citadel Agrax Earthshade.

The flesh was again a mixture of techniques, Scale 75 Basic flesh, as wash of Citadel Rikeland Fleshshade, followed by highlights of Citadel Cadian Fleshtone and Citadel Kislev Flesh.

Based Using Vallejo Earth Texture, a brown wash followed by a drybrush of Vallejo German Camo Beige.
