The French forces continue a slow but steady build for the 1859 project. Fresh off from the painting desk and reporting for duty are two French artillery pieces and their accompanying limbers. Each gun is crewed by four artillerymen and each limber is drawn by a six horse team.
These guns and limbers are all Freikorps 15s. Very good models although the horses are smaller than the other manufacturers used in this project. Six horse limber teams may seem like overkill and luxury but the Austrian and Sardinian limbers come with six horses each. Waste not, want not, right? Naturally, the French limbers are delivered with four horses so extra sets are needed to bring each limber up to the full strength of their Austrian and Sardinian brethren. QRF/TSS is very good about filling custom orders. When I place an order, I often request extra horses for the limber train. The extra train has always been provided. Why is the French train not sold with a six horse train? That is a good question!
