ACW 10mm painted US and CSA Artillery and Limbers

This week I have some photos of my completed artillery and limbers.

Confederate Artillery


First up are some photos of my Confederate artillery. The crews are from Perrine and Old Glory and the guns are from Old Glory. I must say that Perrine’s figures are very nice and they match up well with Old Glory’s figures. I will probably be adding more Perrine figures to my armies in the future. I chose to use Old Glory’s cannons because I feel they scale much better to the crews compared to the guns offered by Pendraken and Perrine. At the bottom of this post I have placed a couple of images that compares the different manufactures cannons.

Union Artillery


For this batch of Union artillery I used Pendraken crews and cannons from Old Glory.

Limbers


For limber I used a mix of Old Glory and Pendraken. Once again Old Glory’s limbers and horses seem to have the best proportions compared to the infantry. Note: I plan to add limber riders latter on.

Artillery limbers Comparison, (Old Glory on left) (Pendraken on right) Old Glory’s horses and limbers are slightly larger than Pendrakens . Also, pendrakens rider seems a little too large for the horse that he’s riding.

Artillery Comparison


When I was building my artillery units I noticed that there were large discrepancies in the sizes of cannons between different manufactures. The images below are some examples.

Artillery Comparison #1 (Right-Old Glory) (Left-Perrine). Do I need to say more? Old Glory’s artillery towers over Perrine’s. At the time I took these photos I didn’t have any Pendraken cannons on hand to compare. Over all Pendraken cannons are comparable in size to Perrine. (I will update the photo to include a Pendraken cannon in the future.)


Artillery Comparison #2 (Right-Old Glory) (Left-Perrine). The infantryman pictured is from Pendraken. As you can see from the photo Old Glory’s cannon seem to have the best proportions compared to the infantryman

Key Words: Civil War 10mm, Civil War Artillery 10mm, Old Glory Artillery 10mm, Perrine Artillery 10mm, ACW 10mm
