More French Artillery for 1859 Project

Having been pulled out of town for the work week, I return to the painting desk to pick up from where I left.  Finished before I left for the week, mustering off the painting desk is a second quartet of French guns and crew for the 1859 project.  Figures are Old Glory from 19th Century Miniatures
With these four guns, the French artillery contingent has caught up with the Sardinian and Austrian artillery parks.  Now, a few limbers need to work their way into the painting queue.  When?  Probably not anytime soon!  Even though limbers are not in the painting queue, more units for the 1859 are in work.  Expect to see a few more units make it across the painting desk soon.

Regimental Fire and Fury game is scheduled for Saturday for an anniversary refight of the action at Brawner's Farm.  It has been a long time since we gathered for a FtF game and I look forward to facing off against the guys on the field of battle.
