Are there any out there? It's a French weapon but it was also used by the United States. In addition, it was used as a sub for the25mm ATG and the 37mm ATG by France and the US, respectively, during World War Two. I'm really wanting some with US crews but I guess I can do head swaps with a French crew.

Are there any out there? I've looked and looked but haven't seen any.

Also, if there aren't any out there is there any interest in asking Eureka to make them?

There was a discussion about this not so long ago. TMP link

The Japanese also used a very similar weapon.

Nobody makes one at the moment that I know of, but it's on Blue Moon's master "to-do" list:

LOL! I guess its a yearly tradition for me then to post and ask about this weapon! I totally forgot about this thread but I would hardly call it recent… but then again, most of us on TMP would qualify as being "old farts", so a year to us must be fairly recent.

I'll check into OFM's post to see if those miniatures ever came out.

Well, its been a year anyway, anything new?

really useful gun range, a sort of inbetween 15 and 20mm range.

Gun 35, Japanese type 11 infantry gun 1922 – 1945.

A Japanese copy. No wheels or sheild, so looking just like the wepon emplaced in yoru picture.

As previously discussed. Not in 15mm. And not likely to be in 15mm.

You know Allen, for someone who has never purchased any of the Blue Moon stuff, you seem to know every thing about the WWI line.

At Cold Wars, Little Wars, and Historicon this year, we had no problem selling the Blue Moon WWI line to people that own Peter Pig and other Lines in 15mm. One individual at Little Wars, who owns Peter Pig WWI and the Minifig lines, comment that tanks, guns (as I had masters to show him) and other equipment pieces (again showing production masters) matched perfectly with the Peter Pig stuff. He has been buying a lot the Blue Moon to use for both WWI and Spanish Civil War, as he runs a lot of those types of games at two of the game stores in Mpls/St.Paul, as well as local mini conventions and Little Wars.

I can accept no responsibility for anyone else's limitations in perception.

"…someone who has never purchased any of the Blue Moon stuff…"

How would you know? A number of retailers and eBay sellers carry the WWI range.

Tgunner, there WAS a Eureka request once upon a time but it seems to have disappeared.

Tgunner31 Aug 2011 4:10 p.m. PST

Yeah, not enough interest in it I guess. There is also a M1919 MG team up there too for the early war USMC (wearing doughboy helmets). Maybe there's interest in that? If so then maybe Eureka might bring back the M1916 37mm too.

Those would be nice pieces of kit to have for my early Pacific War Americans.

We finally go them!!!!!


It's under Brett's Brawlers. You get two of them actually. I think there's a fair chance that they'll get their own blister sooner or later. That's what has happened with the rest of this range.

Does anyone know if those 37mm infantry guns were used in teh Spanish Civil War?

Personal logo McLaddie Supporting Member of TMP23 Aug 2015 12:40 p.m. PST

Hey, I got my answer on the Spanish Wargaming Board, so no worries.

Well geez, Mcladdie, lol, wanna share the answer? laugh

Quite often used, but never On Sunday or Holy days

No secret. I simply asked on the TMP Spanish Gaming Board.

My understanding is that some were supplied to the Republic from French stocks and from weapons captured by the Russians in the early 1920s, although the latter might have been Russian 37mm Trench Gun.

In Arms of the Spanish Republic by Garcia and Franco, there are pictures of two:

Oh, duh, I read "the spanish wargaming board" as being another forum outside of TMP. Duh again. grin

Mmmmm! The 37mm M1916 gun, in all it's glory.

Don't know much about 15mm stuff, but …

I have managed to equip my 6mm French Colonial (Armee d'Afrique) force with it.

(aka: Mk 1)

BF FOW now makes this for the French and American armies in 15mm now.
