Artillery Pictures

Prussian 12-pound artillery battery with guns, limbers, ammo wagons and matrosses.

I thought that I would go through my huge catalogue of pictures and pick out some of the best pictures of SYW and AWI artillery in my collection. Click on all pictures to enlarge the view. I hope that you will enjoy looking at these pictures.

One of the things that you may notice is that I like to have limber teams and ammo supply wagons with my artillery batteries. They make for a more realistic view and give one a sense of the depth of the artillery battery when it is deployed.

Another view of the Austrian battery.
I still needed to paint more limber teams at the time that this picture was taken.

So there you have it.


  1. Artillery batteries complete with caissons & limbers etc... one of my favourites! Thank you, these look splendid.
    Best wishes,

  2. Always like to see limbers and caissons. Must get mine finished.
