10 limbers, a scratch built caisson ( That might be better in scale for 1/72) and as I have for my Russians a engineer wagon. The front limber is scratch built from long ago, should have remade it. 3 of the old limber sets are from almost 40 years ago and I haven't remade them.

4th set from front was first attempt before assistance on a 6 horse team, harness lines are not correct as I understand them now. I will use 6 horse teams for 12pdrs, 4 horse teams for 6pdrs. I put a gun stand on trail end of stand when battery is lumbered, unlimbered the rest of the battery gets put on table and limber stand gets to clog up area behind the battery.
Might need 2 more as goal is 1 limber for each battery on game board.

Very nice indeed.
I'm conflicted(!) on the 6 horse teams myself.

Like you I invested heavily in 'good looking' games even when rules didn't account for limbers, trains etc. So I have all the completed of those I need.

I'll never need all artillery companies on a games table again either, so no need for 1:1 for supports etc.

In fact I've started 'cheating' already, dropping 'some' new formations batteries to half size just like they did in the campaigns!
Salutations! Bring on the Marschal…

The latest addition of a few more I am working on. 10 will only cover 1 Corp and usually field 2. So by my reading the Prussian Horse batteries ( Reitende #11 &12) had British pieces and kit, so hijacked a British limber which didn't get the model I wanted so had to modify it.
Though would be used for one of the two appropriate batteries just use the limbers as generic if needed elsewhere.

As with my Russians this is end of a year long project where I had only 6 limbers now have 18. Shouldn't need more limbers but only have 1 homemade caisson and want quite a few.

Additions and hopefully next week at Fall in will get a few more
Front – every army needs bread and flour delivery is coming by oxen
Middle is forge wagon, not sure I got it right and first mule team in my collection
Last wagon will get crates
The blacksmith standing is working on a horseshoe, his partner warming his hand hopefully will make breakfast

Did see a note on link
That the Prussians color coordinate their horses on limbers and I didn't. I use 1 limber to represent the whole battery but still would have helped on a game board.
