WW2 Italian Field Artilery is an big gap and Strelets have given us some great artillery sets for 19th/20th century conflicts recently so hopefully will consider this set too. Also yes to Italian Infantry in sun helmets and maybe also a set of Italian Askari ( Libyan for North Africa or Eritran for East Africa) as these troops made up a large part of the Italian forces in Africa.

Here's another vote for WW2 Italians, and field artillery in particular.

Apart from metal, there are field guns (of French and Austro-Hungarian origin) available in styrene but the 75mm Cannone da 75/27 mod.06 is lacking. It could be used for WW1, WW2, the SCW, and in many armies since their Krupp guns are very similar.

Re: Friday Message

Yes some Askari would be very welcome too. They were indeed very faithful troops which fought in many cases until the last bullet

Re: Friday Message

Some troops of WW2 are missing...gurkas, moroccan mountain troops (goumiers), libian inf.for the Italian army.

Re: Friday Message

I was just about to say that - second vote for Libyans!

Re: Friday Message

Another vote for Italians, the Waterloo 1815 sets have such a mix of figures that it is very difficult to create ordinary Italian troops.
