Saker Cannon


A second artillery peice for Hawksby’s Foot. This one is a smaller gun, a Saker cannon. This peice was bought by Hawksby from John Grice a gunsmith in Handsworth. (Birmingham)

it is crewed by  gunner Knowles, and three artillery men, Jim Hampstead, Job Lowe and Esau Morran.

Two musketeers are attached to the gun to ward off any attacks on the artillery as they reload.

The miniatures are all from the great Warlord Games Pike and Shotte range.

  1. Thanks. Cannons are always fun to paint 🙂

  2. That looks great. The added musketmen really bring it to life.



  3. Lovely work. The diorama base with the wooden flooring and gabions – and the musketeers to boot – really makes it into a full scene rather than just a bare artillery piece.

  4. AWESOME!!!

    I don’t suppose you’d be willing to do a tutorial on how you made that planking would you? Or have you already and I’ve missed it?
