I've also painted up a couple of optional ammunition trucks to go along with the battery. These are resin models and really well sculpted and also fun to paint.
2 x guns, 16 x crew and 2 x vehicles gets me 52 points in total for a nice little boost to my tally. There's plenty more desert themed WWII to come from me so stay tuned.
On a vaguely related note, that scoundrel DaveD has challenged me to another side duel. The first of us to reach 1250 points will receive from the other some painted goodness or a goody bag of locally sourced lead to add to the pile. Seeing as my two entries today sends me back up above him on the tally I say challenge accepted! :-)
From Curt:Oh, these are very nice Millsy and a startling shift from your recent entries - I confess I'm suffering a bit of whiplash from this!
Like you, I really like seeing these guns deployed on their platforms as it' has allowed you to have all the crew deployed around them, attending to their various duties. Very cool.
As Millsy mentions, we are witnessing a very brisk competition for top billing on the points roster. When Dave and Millsy were hammering out their challenge yesterday I jokingly said that I would enter it into 'The Book of Flung Handbags'. Well, Millsy being Millsy took the remark and ran with it:
Classic. As he suggests, I may have take this as impetus to make a special page on the blog to list our paint duels and side challenges.
Again, great work Millsy.
