VBCW - BUF Assault Gun



Another addition, to my growing Very British Civil War forces. The chassis is from an Empress Miniatures Pzr I. The guns, gun shield, shells, and shell box are scratchbuilt. The rest of the stowage is from various BEF Miniatures kits that I have on my painting table. The gunner, looking over the shield, is from Empress, and the loader is from Great War Miniatures.



Naturally the 12" bombard gun is a prototype, and as liable to harm its crew, as the enemy. Its relative lack of protection, any secondary armament, and the fact that it can only carry 3 shells, before it needs resupply, keeps it in character with VBCW - this is no superweapon!
