The last Africa Korps......

The last Africa Korps clear the paint table..... and a couple of interesting characters, a tribute to Airfix and childhood games, with a figure in a forage cap throwing a grenade....


The eight man squads whilst perhaps a little susceptible to casualties, would get some more flexibility within Bolt Action with extra dice in the activation bag.


A second squad or squad number 7, there must be a dust cloud coming in as this pic is a little hazy. Yet again another MG34 in the prone position.....


The eighth and final squad and a MG34 firing from behind a huge rock as cover, this core infantry force should be enough... now for a couple of support pieces and finally a game.....



The big question is can they break the curse of freshly painted figures?

    1. It certainly is, just a few support options to go.

  4. Nice brushwork. Here's to breaking the new unit curse. Certainly worth trying out so many at once.

    1. I am hoping quantity has it's own quality...

  5. More great additions Stu and the grenade throwing pose isn't a million miles away from the old Airfix Classic, is it?!
