Yes, painting limbers and team are a necessary evil.
Painting these three limbers and teams, somehow, did not seem so bad!
Mustering out from the painting desk are three Sardinian limbers/teams from Freikorps 15s for the 1859 Risorgimento project. A number of these models have been fielded in the past so no surprises with these fine models. With these three models added to the project, eight Sardinian limbers can now see service on the table top.
What motivated the production of more limbers? Well, Quick Reaction Force recently held a 20% discount offer and I figured this was a good time to restock! My plan was to deplete existing limber supplies before the new order arrived. Well, I made it! I finished these models on the 29th and the Freikorps 15s order arrived on the 30th. Just in time inventory management.
As seen from the photo below, the restock consisted mainly of limbers and teams for all three combatants. Both the French and Sardinian limbers came with six horse teams but the Austrians arrived with only four horse teams. In the past, the Austrians contained six horse teams as well. Was this an oversight? In the catalog, AUS40 is described as having four horse teams but the accompanying photo shows six horse teams. Confusing. I'll send a note off to QRF for clarification.
Now, with French limbers now in-house, I should focus on painting some French!
