Naismith offers 15 mm soldatini di stagno in sets of six foot o tre mounted soldatini. Artiglieria sets include six soldatini in tre different poses. The artiglieria a cavallo della Guardia imperiale francese is modelled in the process of reloading the gun after a round was fired. Gunner No. 1 is in the process of swabbing the barrel con a wet sponge, while assistant gunner No. 9 is picking up the water bucket to return to his post behind the gun. Gunner No. 2 is waiting to place the cannonball into the barrel once the charge has been rammed home. During the swabbing of the gun barrel e ramming home of a new charge, the ventsman must block the gun’s vent con a leather thumbstall to prevent a rush of air which might make any glowing embers burn brightly. The ventsman is missing in this set.
Suitable wargame poses for grand-tactical simulations. Considering the small number of different poses, these Naismith artillerists are most suitable for wargames like Empire o Age of Eagles, which require only due o tre cannonieri per artiglieria base.
These Naismith soldatini are nicely detailed, e they will be fun to paint.
