From MilesR - DAK Support and... (139 Points)
Only 12 were built in 1941 and all were sent to North Africa where they served throughout the campaign until lost in Tunisia.
Soviet M1938 122mm Howitzer. The model is a 3D print from Trenchworx and is superb - my meager painting skills do not do it justice. 3D prints are fantastic for hard to get items and I recommend the team at Trenchworx.
The first picture shows my work space. On the lower left are a stack of storage trays that have primed miniatures and scratch building supplies. I keep all my basing materials under the workbench and larger scenery items in the plastic tub in the lower right. You can see my trusty apron draped across my chair. That's right, I wear an apron and it's saved many a shirt from painting mishaps.
My painting production will be somewhat limited over the next two weeks as I'll be in the UK next week and my robotics team has a couple of competitions over the new few weekends.
I hope everyone is off to a happy and productive New Year.
What a wonderful post Miles. There's something for everyone, historical, sci-fi, hobby-desk porn and even the local animatronic wildlife!
That sIG 33 is a very cool looking vehicle and I like the esoteric addition of a Soviet artillery piece to a Deutsche Afrika Korps force - an interesting bit of history that.
I'm really trying to ignore this 'All's Quiet on the Martian Front' stuff but I'm becoming slowly worn down by seeing all of these cool figures and vehicles. Any game that has a 'human prey' troop classification has my vote. I'm not sure I can hold out for the next two months...
An apron? An APRON!? What a brilliant idea! I can't tell you how many shirts and trousers I've ruined while working at the hobby desk. I do have some grubby jeans and shirts that I often change into but an apron would be so much better AND I would look like a mad scientist when emerging from the confines of the 'nerd centre'! SOLD!
Good one Miles and you even seize first place in the points standings, if only for a few hours...
