This is the official question to Pendraken.
Are any limbers or at least limber horses planned for AWI ?

I compared SYW limber horses with AWI light dragoons' ones and those from AWI are 20% bigger. It's because all AWI line is bigger than previous Pendraken's figures.
If there is a plan to release proper size AWI limber horses in the future, I will wait for this. If not, I would have to find another supplier for this specific item.

Clib can't do straight line sculpt but did say if enough interest was shown he may be tempted to do limber horses

This is what I know, hence my question to Pendraken owners.
I think that pack containing two horses, limber (can be the same as SYW, but with AWI 3-pdr wheels) and one or two foot drivers (they were civilians AFAIK), will sell well.

There's nothing planned for them, they're on the requests lists with a few votes, but Clib's busy with all kinds of other stuff at the moment.

Great.
But we can keep up lobbying for limbers in this specific thread.

I did a little researchy, and found that British used civilian drivers, but in American army, matroses were sent to operate limbers.
So in planned "AWI universal limbers" Pendraken should include two teams of two horses + limber each, as well as two foot drivers in civilian clothings and two in military uniforms.
One could add a figure mounted on draught horse (in uniform) but separated from horses, or on additional draught horse, as it wasn't usual to ride limber horses .
