While only a single artillery limber and team, it is always a welcome addition to push one of these pieces of equipment across the painting desk regardless of the number. The limber and team were pressed into the painting queue in between two larger units. Painting only one team was not as painful as setting about to finish three or four of these auxiliary pieces. And once it is done, it is done!
Like almost all (all but one, that is) of the limbers and teams in the 1859 collection, this piece is from Freikorps 15s. With ten French guns and crew completed and only four limbers listed as finished in the Painting Log tally, work still remains to bring the French artillery park up to full strength. Maybe I will continue slipping a limber or two in between other larger efforts? At least four more remain in The Lead Pile awaiting an opportunity to slide over to the "finished" side of the ledger.
Following the conclusion of the first quarter's concentration on the 1859 Battle of Montebello, painting action on the 1859 project will likely take a back seat to other more "urgent" projects. Actually, no projects have a feeling of urgency at present since most have reached the point where games can be fielded with troops at hand. The only project with any urgency might be the Biblical project featuring my budding Assyrian troops. Jake is ramping up production on a likely foe for my Assyrians in the form of an Egyptian army. He is making great headway already (see Jake's Egyptian works here and here). Seems the arms race is on and I need to ramp up my production.
