In answer to Peter's question. Yes I am going to do Caissons as well.
My ECW for ACW trade worked out quite well for me in that I basically got one of each of the ACW packs done by GHQ. This included limbers for light, medium, heavy and siege guns. The field artillery limbers are all the same model with the exception of the limbered gun that comes with them.
First up are the limbers themselves. Each pack contains a limber, 4 wheels, an artillery carriage, three different size of barrel, 2 wagon riders, 3 horse riders and six horses. I opted to go with only 4 horses per limber to keep the bases from being too large. I also tended to only use one wagon rider rather than two, so the bases would look less cramped. (Also to alleviate the strain on the poor horses now that there are only four of them....)
I chose to leave the cannons unattached so I could just park the artillery base on the limber to show status. That nicely frees up some gun models to make additional artillery stands using all of my left over gun crew. (GHQ packages 6 crew per cannon, I only use 4)
|Yes, I know most of the riders are on the wrong side. I forgot they should be on the left. Mea Culpa!|
Speaking of artillery supply, here is a Union Battery Wagon. Just like the Caisson this pack contains the battery wagon in lieu of a cannon. This will probably only see use as a limber.
Finally, I have a couple of supply wagons. These come with Six Mules, rather than horses, and only one rider. As with the others, I chose to use only four animals per stand.
These should be useful for doing a supply or base camp area. There are some ammo rules for games like JRIII and it might be useful someday to find a way to add logistics.
