Carlist mountain gun

At the risk of boring everyone to distraction, I've added yet another unit to my Carlist army for the First Carlist War project: this time around a mountain gun and crew to give the Carlists a bit of extra punch. These were small 3 or 4 lbers that could be broken down easily and transported by mule over rough terrain. I've used two Perry Miniatures codes for this gun team, deployed and packed on mules. I'll use all four mules when the gun is packed up and probably keep around the ones with the gun packed aboard even when the gun is deployed. I'm sure this group will look great struggling over rough terrain and deploying where Cristino cavalry can't get at them.

The red boinas (large berets) are quite distinctive and set these fellas apart from their Northern army brothers.


  1. That gun is hilariously small! Looks great.

    Speaking of which, I like the new look of your blog too.

  2. Fantastic! These are lovely figures and you've really done them justice. Great to see more FCW stuff.

    Best wishes


  3. Awesome! And yes, the new blog layout is nice. I can actually post to it conveniently!
