WHFB Empire Great Cannon

This is an OOP model that is all metal except for the wheels which are either plastic or resin. The crew are painted up as belonging to Talabheim. I was considering painting them up in the colors of another city, but the red and white pop pretty good against the cannon.
The crew are a bit on the short/stocky side, but very nicely sculpted nevertheless.
Another welcome addition to the Empire army.
Hopefully, this Great Cannon and the Steam Tank will be providing good heavy artillery support.

  2. I love the Warhammer DGBG (Dirty Great Big Gun!) and crew - amongst my favorites - and these are very nicely done indeed. Chunky yes, but in a good way!

  3. Great work. Like the ruddy face effect you have managed to pull off and the detail on the gun. Should be fun to use in battle.

  13. She's gorgeous Dean! I have far too much Empire artillery in various forms of completion. There's just something about them...

  14. Thanks for the kind words, Gents.

    Agree that these guns have a special appeal unto themselves.

    Best, Dean

  15. Very nice work, Dean!

    Particularly like Gerhard von Greunstrehn there with the cannonball, that's the face of a hernia waiting to happen!
