Re: France 1940 Models

Baron von W, I shall be coming to the Perrys demo game to hand over the two 1870 gun masters (French 12-pounder, pictured on the blog, and Prussian 6-pounder, still being finished) and to have a hob-nob with Michael about the Franco-Prussian range. I shall seek you out there: I don't know your name...

Re: France 1940 Models

Beautiful work, Mr Boadle - absolutely beautiful (which seems an odd thing to say about a weapon of death and destruction, but there you go).

Re: Twitter now the main channel for TFL?

I'd hope so, Warlord virtually killed their own forums, firstly by actually killing them for months, then when they came back stuff was added there as an afterthought, if they remembered, with FAQ & similar on faceache and quite a few semi official responses of "oh thats in the faceache group" You ...

I thought the Tower rifle was a mid 19th century weapon. In January 1776, the Army ordered 1,000 rifles based on a pattern devised by William Grice, based on the German rifles issued to the Army during the SYW/FIW.
