WAS Piedmontese artillery

I use one gun model to represent two artillery pieces on the table. Here I have a howitzer (Perry I think) plus 3 Austrian 6 pdrs from Fife & Drum. The limber and horses are superb and come from Black Hussar. Although the supplied traces are fiddly to put on, I think they improve the look. I will probably have to do three limbers more to complete the Piedmontese artillery. But like most others, the expense and trouble of doing limbers puts them at the end of the 'to do' list.


  1. Spectacular! Love the limber and team. Yes, Black Hussar figures and equipment really supplement other existing ranges well. You are giving me all kinds of dangerous ideas with your Piedmontese troops. They provide a nice and interesting diversion from the usual Prussian and Austrian SYW uniforms that form the backbone of so many wargamers' collections (mine too). I'm always on the lookout for something a little different that isn't seen in everyone's armies. Anyway, keep up the inspiring work!

    Best Regards,


  2. These look great. I've been looking for info on the colors of Piedmontese guns. Where did you get your info?
