Not that I am an expert on the topic but I am looking for European style siege guns for Napoleonics, Indian Mutiny, Crimean War period that will work with 20mm scale artillery crews.

If such guns exist (in metal) for 20mm scale, then that's good, if not would guns from the smaller 25mm manufacturers such as Miniature Figurines, Foundry or Hinchliffe work alongside 20mm figures? Perhaps a smallish 25mm French Napoleonic 12pdr could pass for a British 24pdr in 20mm scale?

I think a couple makers like Hagen make static siege guns/mortars. It appears the challenge is finding siege gun sized barrels on field gun carriages.

Have you looked at Irregular Miniatures ? Their Really Useful Guns are 20mm, but can also be used in other scals if not too different from this scale. See and go to "Really Useful Guns". Although most of these guns are late 19th century or later perhaps there is something useful (;-)) for you.

Given the period you mentioned, ACW might be the place to look. Musket Miniatures has a 24lb howitzer that should work link
but be fore warned: service is slow and not communicative.

This gamer uses Minifigs 18 Century and the current Hinchliffe 25mm range guns with his old style 25mm figures.

Irregular Miniatures has some great big guns useful for Asiatic armies. But I wanted something more standardized and streamline for European armies like the British.

That Musket Miniatures cannon is perfect but it's true they have a poor customer service track record.

Some of those Prometheus in Aspic guns are brilliant.

Siege guns on naval carriages, used by both sides in the Crimea. In 1/72 plastic: link
