While my 54mm ACW forces expanded significantly last year with the acquisition of some Deetail figures, I was still short of artillery. Well painted artillery at any rate. Thus a couple of weekends ago I was rummaging in a box of figures in search of some of the Armies In Plastic artillery sets I bought in the aftermath of 2013's Gettysburg game. The AIP guns are heavy siege weapons - 24 and 30 pounders. They are nice models moulded in a grey/green plastic, so all I did with them was paint the barrels in either black or dark gunmetal.
So on to the crews. I was unable to resist painting all the kepis in red - just like the old Swoppet ACW gunners! The others wear slouch hats in either grey or black.
The emplacements are from the AIP trench sets and are as yet unpainted.
