The Wurst Artillery Set

Posted by FredG on 17 Jan 2018, 20:19

Harnessing up the team will need quite a bit of time so I've shelved this set for the moment. I'll get back to it when there's a bit more daylight to play with. :yeah:

I was searching the internet for a reasonable diagram of a six -horse team harness and the best one I've found was in my own library.
I've decided to go with the RHA version.

The rearmost horses will still be connected by the Austrian method and as a whole should be reasonable.

OR do you think differently? :P

It is the last place we look. Usually, when I misplace something, it is on my paint desk, right in front of my nose :xd: :xd: :xd:

I thought in the first instance it is a joke. But it look like a real transport for the user of the gun.
The headgear is not well chosen for this kind of ride I think.

I remember from Revell a WW II German horse and carriage for a gun.
Two soldier sit forward and two backward. Far more comfortable as the soldiers pose show.


With the wurst riders in position the guns did travel slower than a "standard" cavalry piece but they could dismount and fire off two shots in the time it took a "standard" crew to dismount.
