Old John has been busy recently, churning out a number of new castings. The latest for me to have a go at are these three Minifigs S Range Crimean British gunners. They are a lovely clean casting and with little preparation are ready to paint. The result is very pleasing. There are a couple of issues that are easily solved. For some reason these figures have sabretaches and full length swords - more in keeping with horse artilley, I removed these, reducing the swords to sword bayonets. The other detail not right are the epulettes, which like the infantry should be fringed - although I guess in the field soldiers would have ditched them.
Overall though, a nice addition to the range which look good when painted and based.
