Russian Limber

Despite slow going with painting, I still managed to finish this lovely piece.  Several of the Napoleonic era rulesets require limbers and other impedimenta, and I agree that they add flavour to the table.  But they are BIG!  This is only a light (6-pdr) limber, with a 4-horse team.  It takes up nearly the same footprint as one of my 24-strong infantry units!  The 12-pdr comes with a 6-horse team - not sure I'd be up to building that, especially with getting a large enough base organised.

The set is from Perry miniatures, and I fiddled with some grey stuff modelling putty to get the extra pull ropes.
