Looking for the above. Any and suggestions for suitable models or close enough stand ins, we are looking at trying to complete Gettysburg over the space of 4 weekends per day. So rather than have the heavy guns off board we would like to place then on the board.

hopefully that is clear

looking for things like 20pdr and 4.5" rifles as examples

We make a 20 lb Parrott (pack of 2 guns for $14.50 USD).

Also, 12 lb and 24 lb howitzers.

I highly recommend the ones by Sash and Saber. I have them and they are very nice.

Old Glory has a pack of six 20-lb Parrott rifles for $38 USD (or $22.80 USD w/ their Army card discount). I have some of their 12-ln Napoleons and they are very good, detailed castings.

TA Miniatures purchased through North Star Military Figures has some very large mortars and coastal /siege guns.

Have you looked at Speira Miniatures? Lovely stuff. I have a few items, including some unique guns:

According to the NPS there were no 4.5" rifles used at Gettysburg. The 20-pounder Parrott, used in one Union battery, were the largest rifles in the battle. The largest Confederate pieces were a few 24-pounder howtizers.

You might consider looking at Mark Adkins Gettysburg Companion and the NPS before spending your cash on pieces that were not present either in volume or not at all.

Best wishes,
