That is a lot of Afrika Korps!

Great to see an infantry-balanced force; they will be a tough nut to beat!

Great work

Thumbs up! You've got quite a collection there. Always nice to get it all out on the table.

Somebody just gave me a test sprue of these. I was surprised at the green coats. I did see it was the color given to the troops sent to Africa. Never knew that. I always thought it was more of an orange yellow.

What percentage wore this color and for how long? I assume more climate appropriate uniforms did show up?

When you get past the horse and musket period I am a little out of my wheelhouse. I don't have many references. However, I may start gaming this period and theatre.

Just from a personal point of view I'd have taken all the mould lines off before I painted, especially on the helmets. But that's just me.
