4 new black powder weapons from Fredericus - rexThey are for 1/72nd but the larger bombard looks ok alongside 28mm Close ups of each weapon HERE
apart from the figures (by Paul expected only good things) the visual effect of these guns is really superb!
Be careful !Give juice color metal on your gun ...

ThanksCast iron comes in a lot of different finishes, mostly a light dull grey if not treated with a lead polish..and, if not treated. (.handled , polished or painted) they develope a patina depending on how much carbon is in the metal at time of casting.The picture below, Antique cannon 1910. http://www.trocadero.com/welcometo/items...39110store.htmlBoth the barrel and the wheels are made from cast iron and haven´t been painted or treated ..but the wheel and the barrel have developed a different patina due to the amount of carbon in each. Different cast iron textures (New cast iron) before any patina effects.
Great! The color you´ve used fits fantastic, I think
... nice indeed, I was about to show my versions, but guess that they might need a little more work after seeing this. Like the coloring as you did find that "black" look.
Thanks Virtually every re-constructed medieval gun, from small arms to bombards seem to have this "black" iron lookThis one´s quite interesting, a reproduction of the Loshult gunand a full size re-construction of a Pot-de-Fer
Well I agree and I know... will show some images of my work later
