I have continued working off and on over the past few days on rebasing and touching up the Afrika Korps.
Here are a few pictures.
Pak 36rs. These are an option for the 90th light division schutzen platoons and give them some long range, hard hitting anti-tank capabilities.
Captured 25 pdrs. These can either be instead of the light infantry guns in the infantry gun platoons or as artillery. I intend to us them as artillery- for a much needed smoke template or is a real pinch as a stop gap anti-tank gun as AT 9 is not to be sneezed at mid war. They also have the option for a panzer II observer tank for 10 pts- which IMO is a real steal!
Bison. These are some of the best looking things in the Afrika Krops lists- unfortunately they tend to be rather underwhelming on the gaming table but I'm hoping that used as a support unit they might occasionally pull their weight! After all its not all about stats and taking the best bang for the buck!
Marder IIIs- Anti-tank 11 with the rechambered Zis 3 gun. These are going to be the workhorses of my anti-tank defence! To field 3, 4, 6 or 8? That is the question!
M14/41 Carri. Italian allies. Ideal for taking on infantry and light guns but with front armour of 3 if anything does so much as sneeze in their direction they will die.
Semovente 75/18: Another anti-tank option I'm considering as they would be handy vs light tanks. Anti-tank 9, front armour 4 and only trained 1 in 6 of the time! Another interesting unit to add to the mix.
Infantry: A schutzen platoon with 2x organic pak 38s and 81mm mortar team, a very handy and robust little unit.
