Another batch of Italians

All these men come from Heroics & Ros, and they are rather awful. The detailing isn’t very good, to say the least.
Here’s a bunch of colonial troops, made up of H&R Italian Infantry and the odd man from their Italian Heavy Weapons set.

The Italian army used quite a lot of local troops as cannon-fodder. These men are from the 3:rd Libyan Infantry Regiment, as can be seen (if you have very good eyes) from their red sash, that is the red cloth around their waists. They have red fezes as head-gear, and the NCO:s have large red insignia on their upper arms. Very colourful troops….
Sash: GW Scab Red
Fez and insignia: GW Red Gore
Flesh: P3 Bootstrap Leather
Backpack: Vallejo 856 Ochre Brown
All other as infantry described earlier.
Here we have some 47mm anti-tank guns with crew. I’ve pinned the guns to the bases so they won’t drop of during play.
Machine guns and crew

I have numbered all troops, to be able to identify them on the battlefield. Roman numerical obviously.

    what are we fighting for?
    Don't ask me I don't give a fuck,
    next stop will be Tobruk"

    Whatta mistaka to maka!
