Morvalistan 1940 - 1941
A Ficticious wargames Setting 3
No infantry this time! Too much going on in the family to let me have the time
to paint a couple of battalions!
Some more Italian softskins though these are mainly resin casts Frontline Wargaming and others from Skytrex. At the rear are a FIAT TL37 (Skytrex) and FIAT truck (Frontline). The two light cars with canopies are Frontline Wargaming Polish FIATs. I decided that the CO of my M11/39 Unit needed a radio vehicle as the tanks did not have radios so I converted a Frontline L3/33 tankette into a Command vehicle. The conversion was simple, just add the antenna and remove the twin MGs.
The Italian 65/17s Askari crews are conversions from Waterloo 1815 Anglo-Egyptian legs and HaT Camel Corps bodies, mules from Waterloo 1815 Dervish Warriors. I found a use for relatively useless "General Gordon" figure and demoted him to a muleteer! The guns are from Moonlite.
An A-13 of unknown make picked up at a bring and buy stall and repainted. The rest of the Regiment is made up of Frontline Wargaming Cruisers.
A Medium MkII picked up on the same stall and repainted
A squadron of Matildas of 4RTR with two gun and one CS tank (leading). These are pretty nearly invulnerable to most Italian weapons and so are used sparingly in the games.
A pair of Frontline Wargaming Austin Tillies
Two squadrons of Marmon Herrington armoured cars.
Heavy air support - an Italian SM-81
Fighter cover - Fiat CR42s - old Revell ones picked up cheap on e-bay
A Matchbox RAF Wellesley
A Matchbox Hawker Fury in South African Air Force markings.
SAAF Hartebeest (actually it is an Airfix Hawker Demon)
The Armoured Train - styled on the colonial type in the old Airfix Magazine articles and on the description of one I found of the armoured train used in Iraq in 1941.
The Engine (Aifix 0-4-0 shunter) and a rifle wagon - both converted with thin card armour.
Another rifle wagon and an artillery/command wagon with a scratch built 18pdr at the rear and a Crossley armoured car MG turret on top.
