Hello Mark.

I hope you don't mind me bringing this to your attention. It's regarding the colour scheme of the French artillery. You have them painted Green???. French gun carriages during the SYW, according to my reference books, were a  bluey grey colour whilst the equipment of the supply train (caissons and carts), were painted brick red.

Through the travail of the ages Midst the pomp and toil of war Have I fought and strove and perished Countless times upon this star.
So as through a glass and darkly The age long strife I see Where I fought in many guises, Many names but always me.
So forever in the future Shall I battle as of yore, Dying to be born a fighter But to die again once more.
