The Horch Kfz 15 I will use only for Afrika Korps games and have painted an AK symbol on the doors. Meanwhile the Steyr Kfz70 will be used as a command platform for games in any theater to include Ostfront, Westfront, and any late war stuff. For BKC and GHQ WWII rules, it will be used as an HQ stand. For Command Decision it will be used for the Battalion or Regimental CP stand. I'll use it mostly as a prime mover for my medium caliber ATGs but I think it could also function as a wheeled transport stand if needed.
Same with the truck. I really wanted to make the truck a primarily Afrika Korps stand, but given my serious lack of transport for Anti Tank guns as well as Artillery and infantry, the truck is needed to serve the fatherland in other theaters as well!!!
|DAK Troops dismount and Opel 3 ton and march towards the line of departure|
|Steyr Kfz 70|
|The blackout light covers look neat|
|The pictures don't do the vehicle justice but the drybrushing turned out very nice.|
|Next to the infantry for scale.|
|The horch! Note the Afrika Korps symbol on the door. I first saw that used (the white on black symbol) in the movie "Playing Dirty" with Michael Caine.|
|I found one of my battlefront drivers. Here is Private Schultz waiting for the Company Commander who is naturally in a meeting...|
|He's thinking about how he's going to miss sauerbraten night at the Mannschaftsheim|
|Some landsers walk by and poke fun at the Hauptmann's driver.|
|The venerable Opel Blitz truck!|
|Zvezda makes a nice and cheap model - perfectly scaled as well|
Next up is my Afrika Korps Panzer IV Ausf D short barrel....
