Getting back to business.
I started painting the 200 plus figures I have left to use.

This group are almost finished.
I have to paint in assemble line fashion to get through the volumes I have.

They are all mounted with pins so they can be removed to do touch ups,
and add division patches and such as time permits.

A sample scene, one of many that the figures will be used for.

I better straighten out that gun on the left.

Larry,

I like that water wagon on your layout. 

Where did that come from?

I think you can get them from the narrow gauge modeling company.

I did a different one as well.

As you may have seen by now,
Bachmann is bringing in the Baldwin 2-6-2T trench loco in On30.

Should fit in with your project.

I like that VERY much, thanks for the shot!

It also speaks to a question I had,
in that the other photos looked like the tracks were much too close to the backs of the guns,
but this angle shows that not to be the case.

I've seen in Brit model RR magazines,
where they run tracks almost touching the trails of the guns in their pits,
which wouldn't make any sense as these suckers did move quite a bit from the recoil.

Having been in Ordnance in the Army myself (98 to 2006, active and reserves),
and growing up in a family that took a Civil War 6-pounder to re-enactments,
I've always been interested in artillery.

This module looks great!
