Different base shapes were used as before to denote different ranks. The hex base marks the platoon commander/senior leader, and the square bases are for NCOs/junior leaders. I tried to mix up the colours a bit on the figures, with some wearing more faded fatigues than others. I find that where the 8th Army soldiers have an orderly, button-downed look to them (even blasted in the desert sun), the Afrika Korps have a sort of mixed, almost slack/proto-hipster appearance.

|You can see a few other goodies in the back of this photo that I will deal with in a later post :)|
Six LMGs is a lot of firepower...this would certainly be a tough lot to deal with in a Chain of Command game.
