Warlord Games continues to support their Black Powder Napoleonic ranges, aiming to provide everything the gamer could need to make their gaming experience as diverse as possible. This time around they have come up with two excellent additions to their British range, with two gun limber models, one for the Foot Artillery and the other for the Royal Horse Artillery.
Both kits are in metal and consist of six horses, five artillerists and a caisson. Three of the artillerymen are designed to ride the lead horses in the team, whilst the other two are intended to ride the caisson in sitting positions. The human figures wear the appropriate uniforms for their regiment, with a nice touch being the seated RHA crewman with an early shotgun held ready for action.
The tack and equipment on the horses is well rendered and the sense of movement for the team is nicely done. These are really great miniatures and a welcome addition to the Napoleonic offerings from the company. The kits are simple enough for the wargamer to quickly add them to their painting queue and get them ready for tabletop use.
