Darrell takes a look at an the Early War, French Model 1897 75mm Gun from the guys at Warlord Games.
even if darrell was reviewing a slope there wouldn’t be a downside to it
I think that’s his code for “I haven’t found a cheesy way to use this yet… but I will!”
Cheese is way too overrated, I’m looking at you WENSLYDALE !
(Said in Warren’s ‘space marine’ voice).
This model has the post WW1 road wheels and improved gun shield,as the WW1 wheel were spoked like those on a horsedrawn carriage and these are clearly rubber tyres. However lovely model and using it for WW1 gaming would not be to difficult as little changed in the french uniforms between the wars, except its colour. Definetly worth a purchase.
Also what’s up with this ‘ Justin’s view’ Darrell, I am ashamed. Poor Justin is always the BUTT of your jokes.
nice piece do like warlords stuff
Evidently it was hard sweaty work to put it together if a shirt change was warrented…
Nice model- the bits on the end of the gun looks like flash to me but are in fact part of the gun- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_de_75_mod%C3%A8le_1897
I think it looks like a great addition for ww1 players but also ww2 as well and I could see it being used by IG as well if you dont mind that sort of thing. I suggest old credit cards as possible bases
PS France had biggest and best army in theory at the start of ww2, tactics however were still ww1 mindset and as such germany was able to out think and react them. This old gun would have still done some hurt to any one who had to face one correctly employed against them
