Devoted to my 18th century miniatures collection
http://www.miniatures.de/colour-18th-century-artillery.html has a useful list; British artillery is also shown in a famous Morier painting - medium blue with black metal.HTHCheers,Davidhttp://nba-sywtemplates.blogspot.com/

Well color me wrong . . . I would have guessed (not knowing) that the gun carriages would have been red . . . *sigh* . . . I would have been wrong again . . . and, sadly, not for the first time.-- Jeff
I have seen a painting of Cumberland that had an artillery piece in it painted grey. Of course this may have been a captured piece or simply an error on the part of the artist as the woodwork was painted grey in the C19th
