Some pics of the guns!

The 12 pounder Whitworth breechloading rifle, this is a special version with a friction primer guard. The friction primer guard was not delivered with the cannon itself but was "improvised in the field by its owners." The whitworth was a breechloader but could also be loaded at the muzzle, therefore the same tools are included here as with the Parrot and Napoleon guns. This version is available here

Yes it's a little unclear though the artwork clearly shows it, PSR mentions nothing of it in the review so maybe it wasn't by design, additionally PSR doesn't mention it could be loaded at the muzzle so ramrods definitely could have been used among the crew.

By popular demand, a 3 inch ordnance rifle has been added to the Speira ACW line, the second most common rifled gun in the Civil War, making the field artillery range mostly covered. Available here

Our latest addition to the figure line called "Prisoner from the front", one of the best yet if you ask me, not much action going on though!

Your successful enterprise has grown and grown
since you became a member and full credit to you.

Now then I`ll get to the point.
For the price of a couple of your figures you could
support this Forum further by monthly subscription.

I am not a Moderator, and as such do not represent Benno,
but I am asking you friendly like to consider it.
Yes this Forum is free but not totally without cost.

I wish you even more success for the future. BB

Another first in 1/72, "trail spike canoneer" so those cannons can finally be moved! Please note that the spike will be more accurate, working on that.
