Do you game the Sicily theater in WWII?

Not yet.

Things From The Basement has a stunning new range of 28mm lasercut buildings on Kickstarter right now, so I suspect there will be such games in my future.

I have in the past. May get back there someday

Yes, with my nice 1/300 kit!

The Gela landings are a good scenario to bathtub. A regular Italian infantry division and HG para panzer vs regular US and a paratroop drop. The Italians even have a mixed armor bn that includes S-35's IIRC.

Italy but not Sicily – would play it if someone set a game up

Martin Rapier03 Mar 2019 12:30 p.m. PST

Yes, from time to time. Not as much as other theatres (including Italy).

French Wargame Holidays03 Mar 2019 3:07 p.m. PST

Yes using Rapid Fire, also run a 8 game campaign also

Grey Heron03 Mar 2019 6:27 p.m. PST

Yes, R-35, Fiat 3000 etc

Colbourne6604 Mar 2019 3:29 a.m. PST

Not yet. But I hear the Perry's are working on plastic US GIs for North Africa/Sicily/Italy, so that might get me interested….

Beautiful paint jobs !

It's my 3rd front: Sicily/Tunisia/the Rest of N. Africa. 1/285th and 28mm.
Plus, If you're playing Patton, you get to slap a fellow player if he does something dumb! (Well, it should be a rule.)
Agree, nice models. Even the vehicles are based…

Oppiedog04 Mar 2019 12:41 p.m. PST

I can see it happening in the near future.
