Hello all ,

I would like to know who-apart battle honors miniatures- sell 4 pounder french muzzle-loading rifle bore artillery gun for 28/32 mm figures ?

This gun is designed by the French general Ducos de La Hitte, to equip the French army with his first muzzle-loading rifle bore artillery gun.

It was introduced in March 1858 and entered into service for the Italian war (1859).

This is the most common type of French artillery gun for the French artillery in 1870 and no one offers it for wargaming this war apart battle honors miniatures?

Thanks you

Ochoin, it's very simple the French guns of Battle Honnors do not have anses and there are certainly many other problems looking at the documentation. …

gringo40 miniatures sell a System La Hitte 6 pounder muzzle-loading rifle bore artillery gun, in my opinion this caliber never existed with the system La Hitte…

The only available accurate System La Hitte 4pdr is the 30mm model by a German company distributed through Berliner Zinnfiguren. The good news is that they fit 28mm figures and are super-super-super detailed. The bad news is that they are expensive at around $25 USD each. The company makes several guns and limbers for various periods. You probably need to e-mail Herr Shultz at the shop and ask about these.

Nobody offers this piece of artillery which is the type most used by French artillery between 1858 and 1871 !!!
