Hungary 1848 Reinforcements

Given the events worldwide over recent weeks, I decided my lockdown painting would take a revolutionary direction with some reinforcements for the 1848 Hungarian revolution.

First up some Hungarian Honved riflemen. These are Steve Barber Models.

Neither side has any artillery, so these Hungarians are again from the Steve Barber range. A really solid looking cannon and crew.

Finally, some artillery for the Austrians. These are from the North Star range. There was a lot of irritating flash, which was also difficult to spot. The knife had to come out several times when painting. Also, the cannon had no sockets for the wheels. I wonder just how long they will survive on the tabletop. In summary, not very impressed.
