A few more pictures from the Ausburger Bilder
Austrians, with the portfire man on the right and the rammer on the left (and the guy fetching the ammunition about to be killed by the recoil of the gun):
Prussians with the rammer on the left (and a few people about to be crushed by the recoil):
Saxons with the rammer on the left and the ammunition apparently on the right:
Wurttemberg with the rammer, portfire and ammunition carrier on the right:
To be honest I am not sure how much faith to put in these pictures (especially since some of the crews appear to be in danger of being killed by their own guns) but it does give me an excuse to add a bit of variety to the positioning of my artillery crews when I am basing them.
