28mm SCALE ACW 8" COLUMBIAD HEAVY ARTILLERY



Just painted this glorious model of an ACW 8" Columbiad gun on a barbette mounting. I will use this as a center piece for some ACW games based on capturing the gun. The model is 28mm scale and from TA Miniatures - http://www.taminiatures.co.uk/ta_webstore.html - who do a truly excellent line of heavy ACW artillery as well as a very nice little ACW mountain gun. This mountain gun is the sort of gun that featured in the movie Major Dundee and was used on the field at times. I saw one in the museum at the Prairie Grove Arkansas battlefield back in 2005.
