Sikh Artillery Park; on the move.



With the start of the campaign season, the Sikh artillery begins preparations to join battle. Escorted by a unit of dragoons, the horse artillery practices their deployment routine.





As the Dragoons ride off, the last gun joins the battery.
The guns and figures are a mix of Foundry, Old Glory and Mini Figs (limbers).




Next we see the heavy foot artillery batteries, pulled by their draft oxen, lumber into position.




The teams are moved to the side as the rest of the battery deploys.






Finally we are jecked to attention by the thunder of a full field battery loosing their first volley of practice rounds.





As we leave the practice field the infantry appear to add their drill to the din of the artillery park.

Next we'll see the Sikh cavalry practice their evolutions.
