Looking good!

Though loading 7 rockets into a 6 launcher piece is ill-advised.

Although I love these models I struggle to understand what rules require the presence on table of field artillery.

I haven't gamed WW2 in a long time but when last I did, even in 1/300 scale artillery was a pre-game off-table shoot.

Where do you see seven rockets?

6 are already loaded as that poor fellow searches for a spot to load the one on his hands….

Comments on Rubicon's forum, the model with come with options for loaded or empty tubes!

@4th Cuirassier:

Several of the prominent tournament minded rules sets, FOW and Bolt Action come to mind first, allow fielding of large artillery and their transports on table. You are right though something in a platoon or company level game that in scale would be several km behind the table. Having them on table of course sells more models.

IMO Rubicon should finish up lines that they started with models that would be on the front lines – like British 8th army vehicles or say a 2 pdr AT gun instead of putting out bling like this NB.

Rubicon's digital illustration is wrong. The bottom third of a Nebelwerfer rocket projects beyond the bottom of the launching tube. The remaining length of the rocket is insufficient to be seen at the top of the tube as Rubicon shows it.

Uh oh…….

Any ruleset linked to minis sacrifices any pretense of realism in an attempt to sell more minis. The authors essentially attempt to re-write history in order to sell more minis. Cheers!

Lee494, we published our own to give folk an option to play with minatures more plausibly but of course stuff gets a lot more spread out so you don't get so many models on the table. Re writing history was never a goal, trying to understand it definately.

Per Rubicon's forum, the final model will have properly loaded tubes.

Battle of the Bulge, US artillery batteries came under direct attack from German infantry and had to defend themselves.
Normandy, Brecourt Manor and Merville batteries assaulted by infantry.
Russia 1941 German divisional artillery engaged Russian tanks in direct fire.
Need I go on?

150mm Nebelwerfer rocket range is fairly short, compared to other artillery pieces = approx. 7 kms., if Wiki is correct.
