After completing my American Civil War diorama, I am starting a new project on the WWII in Yugoslavia, where Tito's Partisans were fighting the Germans, Italians and Croatian Ustasha. The diorama will depict one of the Axis offensives against the Partisans in Bosnia, where they tried to encircle and destroy them. The diorama will have more than 400 figures and will be build in 1/72 scale.
For the Italian infantry I am using the Arifix set 01757, and I have consulted the Osprey Publishing military books for the Italian uniforms in the Balkans during this period. The bases of the figures are unpainted, as they will be covered by the diorama terrain when installed.
