Not sure why the 10mm is really perfect for the desert (in particular); mine are 6mm.  Care to clarify?
You can't tell 6mm apart at gaming distances. You might as well go to 3mm with multi-vehicle stands.

You'll have to send that in clear.  I'm not all that well informed on the code in of all these emoticons.

I am a bit surprised by that as I need ocular correction, having had the good fortune to reach such an age that requires it, yet I find that I can quite readily see the difference on the game-table.  We also have multi-vehicle stands.

Three more panzers completed, a J and 2 F/G/H, two older tanks in emergancy smear, The J in the proper DAK camo colours.






Quite like the back view

And a ubiquitous Opel Blitz




What's it carrying? Maybe the Arc?

9 stands of DAK infantry with added MG34 and Anti-tank rifles


Top view to show anti-tank rifles.


Battalion assault?


Hmm.. FOCUS!


Back view


Mortars


They're in there somewhere!


Oh, there they are!


PAK36s


Two to a base was much better, one just got lost!


Come on then Tommy!

Very nicely done. I particularly like the "door-knockers."

Very impressive stuff!  I have never read of the use of anti-tank rifles by the Germans in the desert.  Do you have any material on it?

Lord Kermit of Birkenhead

They were in the ToE but it is questionable if they were taken. Would have been marginally effective against A13's and almost useless agaist any other tanks in theatre. Still something is better than nothing.

DAK nearly to a stage where I am happy to call them done (HQ/Spotters to do, plus when Panzer IIs come out, plus...)

HMG platoons


One facing the wrong way!


I sculpted the sandbags in a moment of boredom


They're not perfect, but they work from 3 feet away!




The 'missing' Panzer IIIJs








What's that over there?


Panzer IVDs






PAK38 stand




Transports

BMW sidecar combinations, another classic DAK image


Should they all have anti-tank rifles or are the MG34s??


Brum brum!


Hannomags






Portze Trucks
