Austrian Limbers for 1859
The last batch of painted figures to pass off the painting desk in 2013 was a set of five Austrian artillery limbers with teams. Each limber fields a six horse team with three artillery train personnel and two artillery crew on the limber, itself. Figures are Freikorps and while smaller than the Mirliton Sardinian limber painted earlier, all will look appropriate in the artillery park. Since the project contains a collection of Old Glory, Mirliton, and Freikorps, some size variation is expected. These Freikorps limbers and teams are such nice models that any additional limbers will be from this line. A bonus is that they can be sourced in the U.S.
On the painting desk are four Sardinian limbers and teams to provide artillery mobility for the Sardinians as well. Like the Austrian limbers above, the Sardinians field six horse teams.
