Warlord Games DAK and 8th Army Artillery and Mortar Support
These are some really nice kits; although I had to look at internet images of the cannons to figure out how the parts went together.
The PaK 38 and 6 pdr will be able to take out the Matilda and Panzer IV, respectively. I think the medium mortars may also be able to take them out too.
The German cannon and mortar were painted with Vallejo Iraqi Sand, and the British cannon and mortar painted with Vallejo Dark Sand.
The British crew were painted with Vallejo Khaki and highlighted with Iraqi Sand. The Germans were painted with Yellow Green, Khaki and Green Brown - highlighted with the same mixed with white.
The cannon come with round bases like the mortar teams, but I chose to use plywood bases I had from Hobby Lobby.
I also added a TC to the Panzer IV - as well as Afrika Korps decals from Warlord Games.
Next up is a Tamiya 1/48th Crusader Mk. II - just wanted something with light enough armor for the anti-tank rifles to take out. Thanks for stopping by and happy gaming and painting to you all!
