Feb 2018 Hobby Update: Italian guns and infantry, 30$ worth of terrain!!

 4x 75mm guns (I'll play them as the 100mms) and 3 x 88 ground mount turntables (magnetized) so I can rock either Lancia gun-trucks or these.


3x Breda HMGs.   Bargain at 3 points for 18 dice!

"Eight is Enough"  Not just a TV show from the 70s, I think 2 full units of 4 Elefantino guns is sufficient!

2 full Bersaglieri platoons plus Bersag Rifle Coy HQ at the back.  Was running out of figures, so used the 'Unknown Hero' model  doing the Karate Kid pose for my 2IC :)

Three Weapons platoons and their HQ. 

Took a while, but finally grouped up and assembled all the loose terrain pieces into 2x refinery pieces, 1 factory, and 4 office buildings.

I had to scratchbuild the roof on the last office building, as there were MANY missing parts.  I bought a pipe kit as well, which will connect all my Battlefront oil tanks on these overhead trestles.  Reminds me of Battlefield 3:


Ofc there is a video:

The Defence of the Church of Our Lady of Saving Throws MidWar DAK scout cars and Italians

 The humble 2cm scout car.. on parade for the Kriegsmarine?!?

Hey gang, another battle report at Chris', this time I will let the pics and video at the end do most of the talking.    There was some chatter about a tournament list that used 2x DAK Aufklarungs command card (scout car formation), 2 Tigers, 2 88s.   While I doubt I would ever go 'that far' I liked the concept of using the Aufklarungs card, and adding more cheap hulls to the mix:  M14/41 allied formation!    Chris has been tweaking his DAK list over the past few videos, and this time wanted to try Lorraine Schleppers.  We rolled up CounterAttack.
