Horse artillery battery, 1815

Here is a horse artillery battery to complement the 13th Cavalry division. In 1815 it was four 6-pounders and two howitzers strong. At the 1:2 ratio (General de Brigade rules) this makes 3 guns. I have added a limber.

All miniatures are Perry. Bases by Warbases. Guns are based on 60x80mm bases, the limber on a 50x180mm base: this looks right, plus it allows the limber to be right behind the battery! This was prime, painted and based between late January and mid April.

In theory there should been 6 horse for a horse artillery limber, but the Perry Miniatures set comes with 4. Oh well, that saved some time!
