Royal Horse Artillery WIP

Started on an Old Glory limber set, as well as two Perry guns - one each 6 and 9 pounder. Here are the horses, limber and gun carriages with basic block painting prior to a Minwax stain.
And the pieces after the stain - along with the guns added to the carriages.The gun and limber crews are next.


  1. I'll be darned if I can find the Minwax water-based Tudor stain anywhere locally.

    In fact, I can't even find ANY Minwax Tudor - water or oil based.

    Your limbers are looking fantastic!


  2. Greg:

    The only place (here in WA State) that I've found Minwax Tudor is at Ace Hardware stores. I've never found it anywhere else. Best, Dean

  3. Nice! Funny you are working on these I am working on almost the same thing but different makers, 2 boxes of the Victrix British Artillery and 1 Perry French 6lb Battery.

  4. Your a very busy painter! They look really nice!


  5. That Mini wax stain certainly works well, they look great!!

  6. Looking good looking forward to the completed unit!
