Here are some shots of our Heavy Batteries for the armies of the War of the Spanish Succession. All are in 25/28 mm scale.
This is my rather small Bavarian Battery of 8lb guns. This can represent 8 to 12 guns, and I'm not sure that the Bavarian army ever used more than this in the field. There is also a 4 wheeled ammunition cart in the rear.
This is Colonel Blood's battery from Blenheim (can you think of a better name for an artillery commander?). From front to rear of the shot is a 12lb battery, howitzer and two 9lb batteries. Limbers and wagons in the rear - and Colonel Blood i in the center. Some of these will see action in our Ramillies game - yet to be played.
This is a combined batter of 12lb guns from Hessen Kassel and Calenberg-Hanover. Limber and Ammunition wagons are in the rear. 
This scratch built model is based on a drawing in Khun and also in Anthony Kemp's Weapons and Equipment of the Marlborough Wars. There are no details of if and when it was used - but I expect it to see action in our Ramillies game next year. In the rear is a regimental piece for Celle-Lunenburg regiments.
This is a fairly large battery of French guns, from front top rear - two 24lbers, a howitzer and four 8 lbers, with limbers and ammunition wagons in the rear. 
Frence's three-barrelled guns:
I modified three foundry 6lb guns to build this French contraption, but since doing so, I have received some photographs of the actual pieces captured at Malplaquet, no residing in the Artillery Museum in Woolich, and it is quite a bit smaller. Consequently, I am going to build a new one and relegate this piece to a fantasy role in some other non historical game. I did find designs for a piece f thi size, but apparently, they were used only in a naval role.
I am currently working on a large heavy battery of 24lb Dutch guns (6 stands) to reduce Ramillies in next year's game. There are also various light gun stands of galloper and other small guns.
