Just to add a little colour to the Western desert what about the Bersaglieri? I've always fancied infantry with chickens on their heads!! and they would be different.

Plus could we have some Italian POWs (these could be cast in blocks of thirty) rather than individuals. Each pack could come with a single tommy just to act as the guard!!!

Greetings

Adding plumes to the helmets of fucilieri isn't difficult. 

Sun helmets would have been nice as an option given their preponderance in IEA and the early desert war but I've made do with helmets.

Mind you I have to admit my Bersaglieri battalion in progress is from another manufacturer because they had sun helmets.

As is my Bersaglieri battalion I'm afraid, an additional incentive was that I could also get them on motorcycles.

How do they match for size against Pendraken?

Not too bad. Not always as good quality in detail.
I also got my French from them as well. Then Leon brings out the French Cry

There are some plans underway to get them done, but nothing concrete yet.

I have painted a sizeable desert war Italian battlegroup based on Pendraken figures but the range is definitely not complete.
The most obvious miss are the Bersaglieri (infantry+ heavy weapons+ motorcycles) but also artillery is totally missing except for the AT 47/32.

Next you'll be asking for Tanks jammed in reverse 5th gear.

Count me in too!
Some Alpini, cavalry and Guastatori assault engineers would be welcome too, and you can't even start an Italian WW2 army without 45mm mortars, 20mm Breda AA, and 20mm Solothurn anti-tank rifles.
