This time with his artillery and then some shots of Johnson's Division.
First two are my share of the six guns in 2nd Corps Artillery Reserve.
I have converted one into a 20pdr Parrott gun, the biggest pieces for both sides. The Rockhampton (Va) battery in the 2nd Corps reserve had 4, and the Lynchburg (Lee) Battery in Johnson's Division had another 2, as well as a 3" rifle and a 10pdr Parrott.
I used a 12pdr Napoleon barrel as the base, filing off the barrel mouth lip, and an aluminium and a brass tube to build up the breech reinforcing ring, the signature of the Parrott artillery pieces (they still burst with alarming regularity).
Happy with the outcome.
Absolutely fantastic painting and beautiful base work Russell.
