Here is my first unit of Austrian Artillery. Those are from Hat. Nice sculpts, plenty of crew to handle the guns, and good selection of poses.
I was in doubt as to the color of the gun barrels. I've seen pics of them painted black, and others painted bronze. My friend Peter (Gonsalvo), from the excellent blog Blunders on the Danube, assured me they were most likely just bronze, without any black paint over. So I gave it a try, but it looked too dull with that yellowish barrel on top of a yellow carriage.
Thus, I decided to go with the black barrel, which is also how its most commonly portrayed in pictures I've seen around. Amongst scholars, the debates over the austrian artillery true colors live on, though.
