3 Pound Galloper Gun

3 Pound Galloper Gun (AE-4)
The picture shows a painted sample of the Galloper Gun set in the Fife & Drum Miniatures range, consisting of the horse, the limber frame that converts the cannon to a "galloper", and the 3 pound Verbruggen cannon on a Pattison carriage.

The stock number for the galloper  is AE-4 and is priced at $8.50 for the set.

The mounted officer is actually the Continental mounted officer, painted in a red coat. The officer on foot comes from the British artillery crew (firing) and is painted as an infantry officer in red coat.
