Napoleonic Siege Wargame play test - French garrison artillery
Tony's fortress is 15mm scale, to allow for an acceptable footprint and leaving enough room on the table for three parallels and a line of circumvallation. This leaves little room on the walls so he has special garrison batteries, using Newline naval guns (to represent garrison carriages) and Zvezda gunners.
I brought three Lamming 12 pdrs, with S Range crews, which were posted on the three bastions. With their longer range these guns proved invaluable to the defence, and were a major hindrance to the progress of the siege.
