My What A Big Gun You Have – Battlefront Brings Out The 203mm Howitzer

September 25, 2015 by stvitusdancern

So we all know that the Soviets brought a lot of men and equipment to the battles of WWII. They were also known to bring some really big and bad weapons and put them up against the enemy. They honestly believed in the adage “All is fair in love and war” or the “he who has the biggest toys wins”.

Now Battlefront brings this big 203mm howitzer to the table in 15mm scale with the Soviet 203mm obr 1931 Howitzer. This miniature is a multi-piece metal with a 5 man crew and includes a base.

They have also included a special use rule, Bunk  Buster and Building Destroyer, the names say it all. Can you imagine being in a city and having these tracked towed pieces unload their 8′ tall and 220 lb shell onto some unfortunate souls in a building and watch it come raining down on top of them.

So if you are following the guys as they prepare to invade Berlin in 28mm scale you can relive the battles in your own home in 15mm and if you are playing the Soviets make sure you bring some of these big guns and if you are the Germans, find a deeper hole.

Do you agree with “bigger is better”?
