Foundry Boer War British Field Artillery Limber

Look what Father Christmas brought. This is the recently re-released Wargames Foundry British Colonial Artillery limber. The gun does not come with the set. I like this limber and team because the horses and Drivers look as if they are actually pulling something of weight at speed.

 Having maligned the Good Lady Wife before Christmas, I was delighted to find this set in the Christmas Stocking. I'm pleased to say that this is now in my display case having finally secured some time to pursue my own projects rather than working on painting commissions. I dedicate this set to Michael Awdry who runs the 28mm Victorian Warfare Blog. This is a place that I always enjoy visiting and have gained valuable inspiration in the past as a result.

Mark, they're absolutely fabulous. What a tremendous present, and you've done the castings justice, and then some. Flawless painting and modelling. And a fine dedication to another terrific painter and gentleman.

Beautiful painting and modelling Mark!

My goodness me Mark, that is a thing of beauty! I have been coveting this since I heard it had been put back into circulation; this post might just have put me over the edge! I can't think a more splendid piece of work to have dedicated to me - thank you Mark.

Michael, it is a pleasure. At £22 its is pretty good value too. The gun is extra, but I reckon that this piece, with an appropriate paint scheme would cover the Royal Artillery from the early 1880s onwards for any hot and dusty colonial confrontation... just choose the gun to be pulled!

A simply wonderful set of figures; and beautifully painted too. Well done sir!
