    In Et sans résultat! it is important to indicate the rear area of a division which acts as the rally point for routed units, a resupply point for depleted artillery, and a marker to symbolize the rear of the division should it be threatened by the enemy.

    It’s nice to dress these up a bit and show off some models on the tabletop that we don’t normally get to see in games, such as caissons, supply vehicles, and the like. Here are three I recently finished for mid and late war Russians. Hope you like them.

    I don’t usually bother with caissons, but I use limbers to bulk out my Napoleonic artillery bases.  I used to use 60mm wide by 30mm deep artillery bases with 4 guns plus crew.  I found that it was difficult not to manoeuvre directly behind the artillery, which I believe to be very unrealistic.  I went over to using 60mm wide by 80mm deep bases with limbers behind the guns, to discourage that.

    So on the topic of artillery limbers and what batteries look like… here is a Russian heavy battery for ESR. This is based for a ground scale of 1″ = 75 yards.
