NYW Savoy Artillery

As you can see, I've clearly managed to get a lot of painting done since the last NYW update... I've finished one single solitary light gun and crew.

Savoy's artillery performed in a somewhat lacklustre fashion for much of the Nine Years War. Crewed by civilians rather than a permanent corps, the army lost near enough it's entire artillery train (30 guns) in a single battle at the beginning of the war.

Given the mountainous terrain, it's perhaps unsurprising that (like the cavalry) Savoy-Piedont's artillery arm often seems more like an afterthought than an important part of the Duchy's military.
