Pleasant Surprise...

I received a couple of orders from Baccus today, and had a pleasant surprise.  One of the orders was Napoleonic Austrian bits and pieces to finish off an army that I had bought second-hand unpainted.  The order included some more guns, and limbers.  The new guns and the limbers were cast with the wheels on!

I still got to play "hunt the superglue" and "unstick the fingers" with the guns that came with the older army pack.

Seriously though, the newer castings look very good, and I do prefer wheels cast on the guns.  Well done to Baccus.

Hi Richard,  we've gone to single piece castings for the vast majority of our artillery pieces and limbers.  The challenge was to do this without turning the wheels into solid disks.

I too suffered from the, 'wheel stuck to the end of my finger' , injury so am also in the very happy with the change group!
