Hello everyone,

How is it that the 6pdr Field Gun of the reference BAV033 Foot Artillery 1808-15 is different of the reference ANG001 Austrian 6pdr Field Gun?

I thought the Bavarian artillery used Austrian equipment?

Thank you,

Paskal

It is a valid assumption that the guns are the same. ANG001 is the stand alone gun from the Austria line. There is no equivalent code for a stand alone gun in the Bavaria range.

Seeing how the Bavarians were allies of the French, you could use a French gun.

Boney donated Bavaria two batteries of Austrian cavalry guns in 1805 – later they were changed for Bavarian guns and limbers, Bavaria did have their own system – buy the book of Dr. Summerfield on that topic.

So the 6pdr Field Gun of the reference BAV033 Foot Artillery 1808-15 is different from the Austrian 6pdr Field Gun of the reference ANG001 because it is really a Bavarian gun not an Austrian 6pdr Field Gun and even less a French 6pdr Field Gun?

Or because it is different from ANGUN1 and ANO78 references of Austrian 6pdr Field Guns

I don't know if the photos on the Wargame Foundry website show it well, but the models I have under my nose prove it!

Yes it is different in case you like an easy way, I would opt for Perrys Bavarian guns, limbers and gunners, in fact that is what I did.

In any case it is not an Austrian gun!

The Perrys researched their Bavarian guns and limbers very well, why make life complicated when you have a first class choice to obtain miniatures readily available?

@von Winterfeldt

Because I want models of artillery pieces of a certain size and because I didn't know the Bavarians had their own models of artillery pieces, I thought they used Austrian material.

Now Alan Perry told me yesterday that his models of artillery pieces were bigger than the ones he made for Wargames foundry.
