This article is a quick showcase of my Italian 10.5cm leFH1840 Artillery Guns that I painted as German crews for Flames of War. These are older miniatures and may no longer be available on the general market. That said, let’s take a closer look.
A Showcase of Italian leFH1840 Artillery Guns painted as Germans.
10.5cm leFH18/40 Artillery (when the option is available in the army list), or as 10.5cm Le FH18 Field Howitzers (when the 18/40 option is not available). I have even used them as proxy 15cm sIG33 Guns for a game or two.
As a note, the artillery squad above is set up for Flames of War v3. I have not yet moved on the fourth edition. In this squad we have two spotters, a command team, a staff team and four guns.
The Command team.
For those with keen eyes, I do apologize for the difference in colour temperature between the pictures above versus the pictures below. 🙂
The Staff Team.
A set of spotters. The circular antennas are really interesting on these models.
The second set of spotters.
I bought these artillery pieces piecemeal at a time when I was unable to locally source blisters for 10.5cm Le FH18 Field Howitzers. This platoon consists of two blisters of 10.5cm leFH18/40 Guns and an Italian Artillery Command Team blister.
Now, let’s look at those guns.
I really do love basing miniatures. A good job basing makes a model pop even if you are not the best painter. One thing that I really like about Flames of War is that each base is like a miniature diorama.

15mm figures are so quick and easy to paint. Prime, base coat, wash and you are done. I washed these figures in MinWax. The results look fantastic!

Great looking minis even without a lot of painting effort.
That is it for today. Hopefully everyone enjoyed this quick showcase.
