The Duties of the Conductor of the Ordnance
The Conductor is responsible for leading his gun team(s) and deploying and firing his piece(s) following the orders of the General of the Artillery. Since, like Musketeers, a gun’s crew will be close to powder, safety is paramount. Crew members will receive appropriate training.

Artillery is not all glory however! There is a lot more to it than going “BANG” It is essential that the work aspect is covered, often a long while before and also a long while after an event.

There are several odious tasks associated with artillery work, but if undertaken as a group they are easily and quickly accomplished and are often a source of fun.
