The lovely people over at Warlord Games recently sent me their 18/25 Pounder for the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) to review. They released it in July of 2015 (Release notes here) to compliment their BEF range, and it is a must have for any early war British player. I will be using the 18/25 Pounder in my new mixed nations force consisting of BEF and French forces which I have written about here and spoken about on the most recent Ghost Army Podcast.
So lets talk about the kit. At a price of 20 pounds it is comparable with other pieces of artillery and is a reasonable price for being nearly all metal (the limber is resin). It comes with the plastic Warlord Games bases, three crew and ten main separate parts. I was happy that there did not appear to be many small parts, which has been my undoing before with some of the Warlord Game artillery kits.
I would highly recommend this kit for anyone looking for an early war Commonwealth light howitzer, top stuff!
