Firing the gun, or pulling the lanyard is a tricky pose, but here is our attempt:

Sorry to be critical but it would be highly unlikely, although not impossible, that this chap would be engaging an enemy higher that himself, ie cavalry, in this conflict.

I would respectfully suggest that the rammer would be lower.

You certainly are moving quickly with a super array of poses overall.

Best wishes,

Chris

Actually there would be many instances where the canoneers would engage enemies charging breastworks, trenches, any kind of fortifications, and in those cases striking upwards with whatever tool or weapon they might have in hand. In particular 1864 during the Overland campaign involving battles such as the Wilderness, Spotsylvania and also during the Petersburg campaign 1864-1865 where field works were commonly used. But point taken.

The angle of the ram doesn´t look too high in the second pic. Even if he isn´t using the ram to defend in the redoubt or against a mounted bod he would possibly hold it that way to fend off someone Swinging at him with a rifle (?)

Hello Mr T.

Yes, a very good point regarding fortifications.

The second picture shows a much better angle of attack so to speak.

That is an excellent picture.

Best wishes,

Want a soldier drinking coffee, eating hardtack or any other pose not yet available? There's now the option to sponsor a pose, either by allowing us to choose, or a pose of your own choosing if you send in the references!

Here you have to imagine the cannon, the "no 3 man" thumbs the vent, cutting off any burning inside:

The artillery drill for the M1857 Napoleon 12 pdr can be seen in this great video:

Ready to purchase in the shop! https://www.speira.net/product-category ... civil-war/

Not sure what I was thinking here but makes sense when you watch the video above, the gunner would set the sight using his instrument and good sense, then when he believed the gun was correctly aimed he would raise his arms making the others understand it was ready to fire. I felt it was a unique pose not seen before, maybe it turns out better when printed..

The new improved limber, the open version has an interior with some rounds and other small accessories and tools, never before seen in 1/72! The smaller parts are too small to be seen in this scale though.

Would `Plastic Soldier Review,' list this type of 3D Printing?
If they would your Company Shop,ie you, could send free samples for them to review. http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Index.aspx
It would be good for your ever expanding range of figures to be seen there. BB

No they only list and review 3D ranges that are printed in plastic.
