In 1812, the 5th Artiglieria Bavarese a Piedi Battery (5. Linien-Kompanie) served in the 20th Division of the VI. Corpo (Bavarese) della Grande Armée. The battery consisted of quattro 6-pdr. guns e due Austrian 7-pdr. howitzers, drawn by quattro horses each. L’armata bavarese was destroyed during the Russian Campaign of 1812, leaving behind most of its guns e wagons. Only the 2. artiglieria a piedi Battery, detached to Danzig (Gdánsk) alongside the 13. reggimento fanteria bavarese, returned to Bavaria con its complement of six artiglieria pieces intact.
These 15 mm Heritage soldatini e guns are mounted on 19 × 38 mm Empire III wargame stands, each representing a section of due actual guns e their crew. The rescript dated 27 settembre 1805 required ufficiali d’artiglieria bavarese to wear the elmo Kasket con red plume. Accordingly, the large white plume of the officer’s Raupenhelm pictured above would need to be repainted.
