|H.G.Walls house based, with Victrix Royal Artillery team.|

the cannon teams are a nice addition. the infantry are not as frustrating to assemble as some of the Victrix sets are, and they paint up nicely. Each figure in the set comes with 2 or 3 choices of arms and equipment to keep the poses fresh. you can probably make 12 or so different poses from the 15 crew in the boxed set. the cannon is many pieces, including the chains on the underside of the carriage. There are 2 issues i have with this set. the first is the lack of horses for the limber(which is not painted up yet due to this fact) this was a disappointing revelation. I would much rather sacrifice the 3rd team sprue for the 12 horses to complete the 1st 2 limber teams. the 2nd issue is the lack of wood grain on the surfaces that should have a wood grain.

Fortunately Perry makes a British 6-horse team available by itself(for a large wagon I'll probably get a pair of these later this summer to complete the limber teams.
