It's time for another episode of the occasional Troops on Parade feature here at Yarkshire Gamer, a good excuse to get an entire collection on the table for a good photo and video sesh.

Today it's the turn of my 28mm Desert Italians who after a recent blitz on vehicles is now pretty much finished.

The blog link has lots more pics and a link to a YouTube video review of the army.

Ken, that is incredible and the painting is exceptional. I see that you are like me in wanting to field a large force. Well done.

Wow – that is a lot of Italians! Well done

Ken, that is incredible and the painting is exceptional.

It is a beautiful collection, isn't it!

Wow that is a lot of Italians! Well done

A lot, and a great variety!

Don't know if you had a lot of choices, but you seem to have chosen all the right stuff!

- Colonial troops and Bersaglieri to supplement regular infantry troops
- A 100mm Howitzer to suppliment your 2 75mm field guns
- A triacle to go with your motorcycles
- 20mm Solothurn AT rifles -- yikes, those are a catch!
- Do I also see a 65mm Infantry Gun (beside the 47mm Breda AT guns)?

Really quite a collection. Beautiful stuff!

(aka: Mk 1)

Ken -- Fantastic force! Wow!

Mark -- "I'd like some 65mm Infantry Guns but no one makes them." No, you didn't see a 65mm infantry gun.

Absolutely stunning force.

And lovely to see someone do the Italians justice.

Now that your British and Italians are "finished" is DAK next?

Hi everyone,

Many thanks for the kind comments, my armies always seem to start with a small plan and spiral out of control.

Mark, as Jim noticed I would love a 65mm Infantry Gun but haven't been able to find one, there are three 47mm Anti Tank Guns there which look similar from a distance.

arealdeadone – I do have a few DAK and I'm working on some vehicles at the moment but we our game timeline ends in Dec 41 so I won't be going too mad on them.

ultimatewargamer, there is a link to their website on the Facebook page but it doesn't seem to be working. Someone mentioned a couple of weeks ago that it was off line, hope all is well with them.

Beautiful army! Congratulations on getting all that done.

A few years ago I acquired the 65mm mountain gun from Brigade Games. I think he custom makes them on his own. It is a very nice and unique model that I like to pull out and use just because nobody else has one!

Look for it under his WWI products. It is still listed on his website.

Very rich and nice!
