Re: Strelets, Christmas is Coming...DAK support group? And Italians...

I have been reluctant to do my hint hint (ie LRDG/SAS) for Italians, and 8th army sets, but delighted other are. Here are some suggestions Engineers , laying and clearing mines was a huge job for all armies in the desert, like the idea of more Anzacs in proper desert attire, summer/winter or night. The nights were cold ,particularly in the winter months often dropping to single figures and close to Zero on occasions. Revell did a couple of good winter/night poses, but there are not many about and they do have a different look to other war zones of the period.

Re: Strelets, Christmas is Coming...DAK support group? And Italians...

I agree with Alan, some engineers would be awesome since that was such a huge part of their job (both laying them and removing them). We have an ESCI DAK carrying a mine, we have an Airfix 8th Army with a mine detector, an Airfix DAK with a shovel, we have a couple Wat 1815 Italians, one Folgore crawling with a mine and one Italian with a shovel. So, not the same army. A set with mine layers/removers, prodding the ground with bayonets, mine sweepers, guys with picks and shovels, maybe a pneumatic drill, all possibillities.
