apart from the figures (by Paul expected only good things) the visual effect of these guns is really superb!

Thanks
Cast 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.html


Both 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.

... 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.

Virtually every re-constructed medieval gun, from small arms to bombards seem to have this "black" iron look



This one´s quite interesting, a reproduction of the Loshult gun

and a full size re-construction of a Pot-de-Fer
