Parker's Battery of the Army of Oxford
The poor winter light here in Britain is making figure photography difficult, but I wanted to share my latest effort. I've just finished up the first artillery support for the Confederate Army of Oxford. I'm not sure which of these guys is Maj. Samuel Parker, but this is his battery. The gun is a 12lb. Napoleon, probably the most ubiquitous artillery piece of the war. The figures are from Sash and Saber. I painted the figures to match with the infantry division, but gave them red trim to identify them as artillerists. I don't know if any Confederate artillerymen wore red trimmed butternut, but mine do!
