I did this once for my scenario, lol, I went non-stop for about 5 hours.
Lo and behold, I woke up next morning and I had ulnar palsy. I'm not kidding! I couldn't feel my pinkie for months. lol.

I hear ya. I am trying to do the squads and descriptions fairly exhaustively so I will cover the RTT'42 campaign wholesale. Lots of brain work too like cranking the stats for a StuG III F/8 as opposed to a IIIG. Ok, back to work before I sluff off...

Very much so. Good allied forces too, though.

Moving into Alpha testing for the first batch of scenarios.

Well first a 'tweak' of the SDKFZ251 into a SDKFZ250:

And two new models for the Germans:

Their size is perfect! I've been using the 37mm AT as a stand in for both the 7.5CM IG 18 and the 15CM IG 33. It'll be great to have the IGs standing "tall" on the map! :wink: The 250 looks fantastic too! Ready to roll out with some elements of the Aufklärungsabteilung!

That's what that is. :)

Are you ready for your 105mm of pain?

On the opposite side of a barrel, some Panzer IVF/2s await the 105MM of pain :).

What I mean is a deeper beige. That's looks like a combo on snow, and desert..... A cool combo as I doubt many have seen that before

If I may, can the M3 Scout Car be more armored? At this point a jeep has better protection :shock:

One more thing to add, can you I don't know "desertfiy" the US Army? I'd love to see some BRO fighting along side the famed Desert Rats (even if it's historically inaccurate, they still would kick ass if they were together) maybe even Amaris can make some Naval Warfare if he's feels like it..... :D I'd love to see the Royal Navy and the Italian Navy go at it say off the coast of Lybia?

Ok, you are getting crazy now.... :)

Seriously, Amaris hasn't finished skinning the IGs. They are desert colored.

Tunisia is an interesting beast, uniform- wise for the Germans. The desert uniforms are ok camoflage, but Northern and central Tunisia are more Mediterranean than desert-like in foliage and terrain. As well, you had levies and units slotted for Rommel, rushed to Tunis/Bizerte, units in France and Germany rushed in, some in tropical gear and some not. Same with the Paratroopers. I am using the Deserty mustard yellow tiger, but after January, many Tigers in 501 and 504 Schwere Panzer were painted olive drab. The bottom line is the Germans, accurately represented in Tunisia, wear a hodgepodge of niforms, especially in the RTT'42 timeframe.

The British wore standard British Army gear (except the 8th Army, after Monty slow walks in in late March...). The US Army wore their standard early war gear, a la Sicily.

And the M3 Scout Car is Armored. No fear. :)

A new texture for the new german guns:

And a special version for Cavehobbit (I need your mail if you want the files - so give me it on MP please)

I need to make the icon and the slot icon and the units will be ready to action. :P
