I'm looking at ordering some 6mm "light", "medium" and "heavy" guns for Regiment of Foote.

Irregular miniatures has a few models, but sadly no pics. Can anyone give me some guidance as to what you'd call each of these?
Culverin
Saker
Falconet
Demi-cannon
(they also have "heavy" and "very-heavy" guns but I think I can work out what those are!
thanks

Demi-cannon is a heavy siege piece – 24pr

Culverin could be either heavy field or siege – 12-18pr

Saker a medium field gun 6pr

Falconet could be quite light but term spans guns from 1.5 to 3 lbs
