The occasional exploits of Brigadier 'Tubby' Bykleigh and the Rhanzlistan Field Force

On the move!

Its been very quiet these past few weeks here in Rhanzlistan, but we have been putting the hiatus in the action to good use. At last the RA 18lb gun has a dedicated limber set to move it more swiftly into action against those pesky Bolshis!

Its a bit of a mishmash which the button counters would probably have a seizure over, but it will do the job nicely. Its made up of four Foundry horses and a limber set of sorts which I got by browsing Dave Thomas's stand last year at Partizan. The riders and outriders were similarly sourced and are also Foundry, from their WW1 range. The heads are from Gripping Beast's Woodbine Design range. As I already had the heads, the total cost was £8.00, which is a bit of a bargain I thought.

Now, I know that the limber horses come from different sets and that the limber ammunition box itself is probably from the FPW range, but it does the job for me at a price I am prepared to pay for something which strictly speaking I can do without! Anyway, it will do for me...
