Models & Basing
All models pictured below are from the Perry miniatures 28mm French Napoleonic range. The four gun stands encompass the following foot artillery packs FN17x2 (gun firing), FN18 (gun loading), FN19 (gun priming), FN20 (hired help) and FN21 (extra crew).
When I originally started this project it was intended for, and based in accordance with Sam Mustafa’s Laslle rule set. These rules suggest a standard 50mm frontage for all individual stands, be it infantry, cavalry or guns. However, rules wise my preference has since shifted towards Drums and Shakos Large Battles as my primary 28mm rule system. Having already based a large proportion of the division’s infantry and a sizeable British force to boot I decided to stay with the 50mm frontage. Although DSLB’s basing system differs from Laslle’s, thus far it hasn’t created any major rule hiccups. The artillery pictured below is based on 50/100mm 3mm plywood, wanting a bit more room for extra figures, I increased the overall base depth from 50mm to 100mm.
