Imperial German field gun

Next up in the works in progress is an illustration of some breech loading imperial German artillery. I'm working from limited sources on a C/64 8cm field piece with a Saxon gun crew. Its impossible to find a good reference for this particular gun type, which was used in the Franco-Prussian war, i've been able to muster a few shots of it, some poor and some so so.

Because of this, it's probably not truly accurate, but short of going to the military museum in Rastatt, Germany (where I think there is a fine example of the gun) it's the best I can do.
