From JohnM: Napoleonic Prussian Artillery (135 points)


John sends in this beautiful submission of Napoleonic late-period Prussian Artillery.


These castings are from the excellent 28mm Calpe miniature range. 


This first group (with the howitzer and shoulder rolls) depict the 3rd Silesian Heavy Foot Battery.


The second battery, below, is the 11th Silesian Horse Battery. One of the stands predates the Challenge.


 Both were part of the Prussian IV Corps under von Dennewitz that saw action at Waterloo.

I really like the ammunition caisson in the background as well and I must say a really nice photo composition.


This group of five artillery bases along with the commander will give John a tidy 135 points. Great work John!
