Does anyone make 28mm Boer Limbers? If not, does anyone suggest suitable substitutes?

I think Perry or wargames foundry.

Sorry, I was asking about Limbers for the Boers. Foundry and Perry make British Limbers. I have two of the Foundry sets. They are beautiful models.

Any one make anything comparable for the Boers?

My apologies, I misunderstood.

I don't know what Boer limbers looked like but ACW Confederate limbers might be modified to use in a pinch.

It appears that the limited imported artillery that they had was acquired in Europe during the 1870's. I assume that you would be able use FPW equipment.

Askari has a German one from the period that's quite nice !

Coolyork, yes, Askari makes the best limbers! A couple of German ones for the Boers it is then.
Cheers buddy,
