Artillery, Limbers, & 28mm

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, my Lasalle French are on their way to being finished.  I still need to come up with a divisional battery.  Ideally this should be represented by 4 guns, each on a base with a 45mm frontage.  The Perry guns are terrific, but a battery would cost $64.  A large chunk of change for the army.  I also need to add limbers and therefore a bit more cash.

Out of adversery comes a plan:

Double the base size to 90mm and include a single gun.  That means that I only need a pair of guns.

Gun #1:

Gun #2:

So a 90mm frontage is absolutely huge when 99.9% of the other elements in the army will be on tightly packed bases.  I’ll pick up the following Perry pack in order to flush out the bases.

Artillery Base Filler:

Next up I need some way to represent these guns on the field when they  are limbered.  Once again the Perrys have come to the rescue.  Check out this pack.  I’ll base these guys on a single 90mm base with a few wagon wheels, a broken axle, and a poor 6lber that should be at the front.
