I have just started collecting figures for a 15mm RCW Red army and need some artillery pieces.
I have tried Irregular Miniatures, but they appear to be FAR too big!!
They are described as "large" 15mm pieces but they are probably far nearer to 20mm scale than 15's.
Can anyone point me at some proper 15mm scale guns please?
Cheers

Peter pigs large WW1/RCW range should give you something to work with

Thanks for that. The 76mm guns will do nicely but I was also after larger calibre guns as well, 122mm for example

Cheers

Maybe Irregular's "Really Useful Guns?": link

Irregular miniatures has a Really Useful Gun (RUGs) range that would likely have what you need.

Thanks but as I say, I have tried Irregular and the guns are WAY TOO big for 15mm figures.

I need "true" 15mm guns not Irregulars pieces that are able to be used for 1/76 scale as well

As I see it you can't produce a model the that looks right for both scales.

Cheers anyway for the suggestion

I wonder if some of the Quality Casting guns from their WW2 ranges would work?

And some nice French big guns.

PP would probably be my first choice. Maybe something from Minifigs WWI range?

Perhaps this is a bit roundabout, and may require some research and modification on your part, but a lot of WWI equipment soldiered on into WWII, especially early war. The 1910 107mm gun would be an example, as would the Russian version of the 1906 Schneider Danglis 75 mm, which the Russians license built in 76.2 mm. These guns were upgraded between the wars for motorized transport (among other things) which meant replacing the spoked wooden wheels with pneumatic tires. This means a visit to the model railroad website or the local store to buy appropriately sized spoked wheels to replace what comes with the WWII guns. Muzzle brakes may also have been added, which you will need to saw off or file down. If this doesn't sound too daunting, here's a link to the Wikipedia article on the 107 mm: link Here's the WWII Russian 107mm in its 15mm glory at the Battlefront website: link

You could try QRF 15mm WW1 range they have some heavier guns including a Russian 122mm 1909 howitzer.

It's odd you think the RUG range is way too big. I'm super fussy about those things and I happily used the Type Four A (122mm Schneider howitzers) and Twenty-Nine B (152mm howitzers).

Mark Plant22 Apr 2021 4:34 p.m. PST

Actually, I take that back. They are too big.

Alexander Pavlovich Kutepov29 Jan 2022 2:31 p.m. PST

What about the 6 mm range are they any good?
