Imperial Artillery "12 pounder Armstrong"

Perry BIF artillery converted to Boshin War, conversion is very easy, Bac Ninh heads and a little work of file and putty. Armstrong gun were used for both sides, in this case, Imperial Artillery loading 12 pounder Armstrong.

  2. A fine addition to your marvelous range, Jose! Well done! BTW, I'm looking for a suitable standard bearer for Imperial troops. Anything in the works? Regards, Dean

    Dean, standard bearers are in my plans, the next releases will be troops advancing & charging.

    2. Those uniformas are so plain... now i understand why you said it had been an easy conversion. I once tried to convert ACW infantry using samurai bare heads and it was a nightmare. BTW, Is there any possibility you could try your hand converting any Gatling out there? although i fear i have discovered that of the only three present at that time in Japan one belonged to an Ouetsu Reppan Domei lord (so i'm not sure which uniform they would use, if they used any at all!) and the other two were installed in the armoured ship Kotetsu (so they were never present in the land battles), they would be a nice addition now that we have rules for them
