I'm getting into Napoleonic naval warfare and would like to put together some coastal batteries. I have some single hexes which I painted white and thinking about putting some model cannons on - I'm not that worried about scale. I'm probably going to use 1:1000 scale ships.
Do you think the best option for me is to buy ACW cannons and use the napoleonic 12 pounder gun? What size bases would I need for these? I am not an expert on gun barrels - is there a way to tell which is which?
Hope to hear from some of you soon and best wishes,
