|Flak 88 Battery & support vehicles|
Five Vehicles, two artillery pieces and sixteen infantry figures should net me a final 20 points to add to my total. I have literally run out of units to paint both for my WWII North Africa project and my Punic War project, at least for the time being. So that's me done in the Challenge this year. It's been an absolute blast and I look forward to seeing everyone else's last entries over the next few days. Now I need to go and lay down in a darkened room for a few days!
Lovely work Lee. The 88s look great on the round bases and I like the crew, officers and staff car arrayed behind them.
As a historical addendum to your post, many think that the 88 was first used in a ground attack role during the early years of WWII, but in reality the gun was utilized this way while in service in the Spanish Civil War, fighting against the Republicans.
It was great having you join us Lee. You're microscale work was such a treat to see and you did great service as a pinch hitter, helping us in our pursuit of our overall group target. Well done! I look forward to having you with us next time we roll out.
