Bavarian artillery 1813. 20mm.

Finally finished a 12lb and 6 lb artillery batteries for the Bavarian Division.

The snag with the SHQ 20mm figures is that the pack come in 4 poses only. The inclusion, therefore, of a dozen Franznap artillery figures seem to blend in well. 5 figures per foot gun.
Movement trays for the limbers still to do.

The artillery riders were achieved using Franznap French artillery riders in greatcoats, chopping their heads off and swopping with SHQ's Bavarian infantry heads. The horse and traces were all Art M. I think the limbers were SHQ (British?) I used twisted staples (!!) as the arm rests. The two chaps sitting on the limber were from Franznap. The caisson was an Austrian one from Art M.

looking at the pictures, I may have to paint the epaulettes?? Some seem to be missing.

Likely to be in action on August 12th for a made up game.
