New: WWI French St Chamond Tank

Following the success of the World War I tanks released late last year, our modellers have been hard at work – and we’re proud to follow-up this week with the release of the French St-Chamond Tank! With much of WWI involving French troops we couldn’t really let the British and Germans have all the glory…

The Saint-Chamond came into production in April 1917, with 400 being produced. With a crew of 8, it weighed-in at 23 tonnes and with a top speed of 12km/h and the 75mm Mle 1897 installed as the main armament – it remained in service through until the late Summer of 1918. Once the fighting had moved from the trenches to open ground, the Saint-Chamond became increasingly effective – and the core chassis was continually up-gunned and up-armoured through the war.

The Saint-Chamond is the latest addition to our range of World War I tanks – so head over to the webstore and pick-up something a little different to accompany your Bolt Action Great War forces. When we showed the preview of this vehicle off on our Warlord Games Facebook page several of you suggested it would be a great basis for a science fiction or steampunk vehicle too!
