Doing The Worthy Again And Piedmontese Generals .


I've moaned about painting up limbers and teams before - I hate doing them ! , there's quite a bit of work goes into gluing them up (they NEVER fit properly and there's NEVER a method of fixing the limber to the horses !),  BUT when they're done I think they look good and add something to the game and I can point them out to my wargaming colleague 'A' and humiliate him as he never paints any for his armies !. Here is the one for my Piedmontese Artillery .


As 'A' is calling round for a game tonight I had to crack on and get some Piedmontese Generals done . Here we see a Brigadier and the CinC with Aide de Camp . Hopefully I will remember to take photos of the action as this is the first outing for my Piedmontese and Papal armies .

  7. I don't care much for painting limbers either but I do it for most of my collections.
    Your effort is well worth it!

  8. Looks smart Tony. I keep telling myself that I don't need a Papal/Neapolitan army and then I keep thinking of Dumas on the Emma...

    I find you have to find uses for them once you have them.

    What rules did you use? BP?
