Next up is the Mountain Gun and Crew (Indian) from Artizan Designs. The blister pack comes with the Ordnance RML 2.5 inch mountain gun which was a British rifled muzzle-loading mountain gun of the late 19th century designed to be broken down into four loads for carrying by man or mule.

It was primarily used by the Indian Army but also saw service with other units in the British Army and was in service from through the middle of World War I. The Artizan Designs gun is made of resin and is surprisingly fragile. I broke it twice trying to put it together; unfortunately there are no instructions on how to put it together and thus it turned into a homework assignment as I researched images of the gun. Super glue fixed the breakage and I am pretty sure I put it together right!

For painting I used my quick and easy painting of Sikh Infantry from a few posts back for the gunners. For the gun the metal is Vallejo Natural Steel with some GW Adeptus Battle Grey for the wood.
