Today we dive back into some of my 18mm Eureka Saxons from Jena Auerstadt.
The artillery component of the Saxon Advanced Guard Division !
|1 Medium Foot, 1 Medium Horse .. figures from Eureka 18mm range. Limber and team is an AB Jena Prussian limber, from Eureka Miniatures.
|For the guns, I have used a mix of 18mm SYW cannon, from the Prussian and Russian range. This would be realistic for the bulk of the Saxon artillery to have a mix of imported or hand-me-down weapons from friends and allies.
|Used a shorter barreled howitzer for the medium horse battery. A big long Russian 8lb SYW cannon makes a good looking Saxon medium field gun.
|Limber for the horse gun is straight unmodified AB, with natural woodwork, and green jackets for the riders and horse train crew,.
|The SYW Russian cannon - has a heavier gun carriage, and thick iron hoops on the large wheels. Makes a very nicely 'antique' looking device for this somewhat old fashioned artillery corps (by 1806 standards anyway)
