Artillerie Royale - Toy Town Soldiers 6


I've had this artillery set completed for some time now but never got around to posting it.  This is the Toy Town Soldiers horse artillery group.  There's also a limber set with crew but I don't have it.



I do like these, except for the smallish gun.  Let's see how it stacks up against the Prince August 6-pounder.


And with the crew.  Better, I think.


I've been inspired to take up my Toy Town Soldiers again. After fiddling with the Lego figures for quite some time, the prep work of a few minutes filing made for a nice change of pace.   I just ordered some more cavalry and the gunners in shakos without the piece.  I'm committed to the PA guns from here out, for the foot artillery at least.

  2. I love the gunners!

    The TT gun looks more late 19th C but it is pretty small, The PA gun looks better with the crew. Terribly useful molds those, if only they had a reason to make a single trail gun!

    1. Thanks very much, Ross.

      Yes, I think the TT gun is modeled on a Britains spring gun, it has a (non-working) spring at the breach which doesn't show in my photos. I wonder a bit what the sculptor was thinking with the small size of the gun, perhaps to make it in scale with the limber set which uses the very toylike horses.
