Strengthening the artillery arm

In the beginning I had only a regimental 3pdr gun with 3 artillerymen by Front Rank. I added some tools, and was quite content.

Now I have added a 24pdr to my arsenal, which you can here see positioned in one of my new earthe works. I is manned by three French SYW artillerymen by Foundry. The equipment to the right I made myself.

On the march these heavy pieces were transported in parts, carriage and barrel separately. In the picture you can see the piece being transported, with the artillerymen marching behind the carriage (originally they were Front Rank grenadiers with hats).
