Anyways, I'm not sure how the forces will be allocated or task organized for the game,but as it stands now, I can help out the Axis Forces by including a sizeable number of Armored and Infantry platoons, and will have some support stands in the form of 2 x mortar platoons and 2 x Anti Tank Gun platoons.
|5 DAK Infantry Platoons of 3 stands each (soon to be 6) with Vallejo "European Mud" added as texture to the base. Enough here for 3 Flames of War DAK platoons!
|Alex's rules need a command stand for each platoon so I added rocks to the command stands, along with an officer or NCO gesturing.
|A DAK Armor Platoon from the 21st Panzer Division. Again, Alex's rules need to have a command vehicle so the TC rides atop the command tank of these 3 x tank platoons.
|2 x platoons down and 4 to go!
|DAK Decal needs trimmed, otherwise I'm happy with them.
I also was able to paint the ground cover of the infantry stands Tamiya "Flat Earth" and will let that dry. This week I will dry brush and seal the infantry and they'll be ready for war!
|Ground cover painted and I'm letting it dry. Once dry, I'll drybrush it to give it that "desert" look that you're looking for!
Also, the support platoons are a mess right now and will take some TLC to get them right. I'll have 2 x mortar platoons and 2 x ATG platoons, consisting of 2 x mortar or ATG stands each, along with a command/security base that will serve as the main base of the platoon.
|The whole force so far...Missing lots of tanks.
|European mud. I like how it has a wet, muddy look to it. I dries pretty hard though.
|This bunker has pumice which has been painted, stained, and dry brushed. The advantage of the mud in this situation is that I dont have to paint it as it's already earthen colored.
