Hey Guys,

Here's a link to a recent project of mine, using the new Victrix Plastic set:

There is also an accompanying artwork to go with the figures, also on my blog:

For sure! :D

Are you meaning the figures battery? The Officers?

I'm not 100% sure what the positions of the crew were during firing the cannon, do you have any advice or info?

Thanks!

You could consult period artillery manuals or current publications on period artillery. Some of the period manuals are available on Google Books, such as DeScheel's Treatise on Artillery. Crew drill among the nations was general identical, one of the only differences being that the gunner who fired the piece was on a different side of the piece in the Royal Artillery.
