Limbers for ACW
« on: October 15, 2018, 06:16:04 PM »

Here is a short video about the new PP ACW limbers. There are 8 variants. The variants include standing and moving, union and confederate, two horse or 4 horse.  All 8 limbers are now in production, with Mike and Nigel at the helm.

"...at the reins"?

Nice little video and the explanation of where each horse goes is excellent.

And yes, a very nice little video.

I enjoyed the music and opening/closing credits, as well as the attention to detail:
 - 4 different horses
 - 2 different limber riders - that sit on the left-hand horses
 - 14-spoke (not 12-spoke!) wheels
 - explanation of the tabs on the horses' bases, in order to get them all in the right place

So, educational too!

The limber pin into one of the horses is a good idea. Anything that makes basing easier and increases stability of the finished model is a winner in my book. Something I haven't seen since Airfix Roman chariots.
The tabs too makes lots of sense too.

The tab idea is really clever. I like to use four horse limbers to show horse artillery.
