Risorgimento Sardinian Limbers in 15mm

After persevering through five Austrian limbers and teams, I forged ahead onto four Sardinian limbers.  Like their Austrian counterparts before, each limber carries a six horse team with three artillery train personnel and two artillery crew on the limber.  Figures are Freikorps 15s.

With these limbers, the Risorgimento project now musters five limbers each for Austria and Sardinia.  I have an additional four Sardinian limbers in The Lead Pile but have exhausted my supply of Austrian limbers.  For me, limbers represent a fair amount of work so it might be awhile before I tackle more limbers and teams.

  1. Excellent site - I especially like the 1859 project

    Are the Sardinians from the Old Glory Range or from the Rank and File range.

    I'm thinking of using them for 1840s French

    1. Hi Shedman!
      The Sardinian limbers are Freikorps 15s. Most of the Sardinian infantry are Old Glory figures with much of the cavalry being Mirliton. Some of the infantry are Mirliton as well. I like the Old Glory Sardinians quite a lot.

  2. They look very good, Jonathan. You unlocked the Man of Steel achievement for sitting through 2 full rounds of limbers!

    1. Thanks, Monty. Painting limbers is not my favorite but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Those 9 limbers are nearly the equivalent of 54 cavalry and 9 guns!

  8. Are these actually the Austrian pack painted in a different scheme to fit the Sardinian colors?

    1. No, these are Sardinian limbers. Look under 19th Century Europe -> Italy -> Piedmont.
