Nice setup, Freelancer, but what does your title "Ikea Kpw!" mean? Did they get the gun from an Ikea store?

I suspect it means a Swedish gun. No expert on banners though, so I couldn't tell.

The guns are both pointing at the same target in any event. Two very nice set ups  :)

The 'Ikea' banners are Percy ones. One of the first UK Ikea's was in Gateshead. Tenuous link...

No the gun is a Perry Miniatures War of the Roses cannon. Assembling it with its funky elevation device reminded me of putting together an Ikea flatpack ( that and the fact it kept falling apart on me), so as I was painting I thought its title should be "assembling the Ikea Kpow".
Banners at the back are Earl Percy of Northumberland.

So that's what the thing at the back of the cannon is. I thought it was something to do with being an early breach loaded cannon. I think two of them are arguing where the Allen key is.
