Rapid Fire! 20mm, March 2015 DAK and 8th Army additions.
The Krupp Protze and an extra Sdkfz 11 are always handy. I paint DAK vehicles with Tausept Ochre from GW.
Sdkfz 251. The DAK symbol and its grey background are painted over the sand colour, the opposite way to reality.
The Italian 88's. I used GW Vomit Brown, a strange name but a nice colour for the Italians.
The Crusader II made from Frontline Wargaming hulls (from their AA Crusader I) and modified Airfix turrets. The Matchbox+Esci Pheasant is crewed by a "chinese" crew. The colour for the British armour is Vallejo Yellow Ochre.
I think the DAK colour is quite close. Both the Italian and British are not but as I already started these armies many dozen vehicles ago I will have to keep with these colours for the sake of uniformity.
Now let's start with some more rare DAK vehicles like the most strange ones in Rommel's Kampfstaffel...
