A battery of Saxon artillery from Black Hussar completed. Three 6 pounders and an 8 pounder howitzer.
The Saxon guns had the wooden parts painted black (actually creosote, so a very dark grey), and the metalwork in yellow, thus emulating the black and yellow of the Saxon Coat of Arms. The yellow was likely a dark mustard yellow, which I did use on these. though with highlighting it has come out looking rather lighter in colour, especially when contrasted with the barrel colour.
Black Hussar also make Saxon crew with fatigue caps, but I preferred the look of having them all in shakos for this battery (bar a couple of officers).
The Black Hussar artillery pieces themselves are rather fantastically detailed, almost too much so for wargaming pieces really! Having to glue on the brackets that hold the barrel to the carriage (rather than these just being attached to the barrel as do most manufacturers), is a curious choice, and rather annoyingly fiddly. You also get all the equipment to serve the guns - ramrods etc, that I didn't use in this case. For modelers this is all very good though I guess!
Here's a pic from the Rawkins book of a Saxon 4 pounder gun.
