6" (155mm) Creusot "Long Tom," Boer Staatsartillerie (4.5" long) and Crew


I have just received a few images from Anton Boot of his very nicely painted Boer 'Long Tom'. Anton is a keen gamer and has a keen interest in gaming the 2nd Boer War....and a great period it is too. But in all my gaming of this period I have nerver once thought about adding one of these beauties to the table..however I am going to have to purchase a couple now from 'The Virtual Armchair General' as I think they would do very nicely in a couple of senarios I have in mind. I hope you like Anton's work and I appriciate that he has allowed me to show of his fine painting.

It is a very nice model - currently working on the improvised 12 pdr and the naval 4.7"guns.
