Dark Angels brah, he gets a pass.

They are basically Ultrasmurf who aren't even able to decide on which color scheme to use! :lol:

Regular Citadel or Prince August paint, for the main color, the same but heavily diluted with water for the brown & green camo spots.

I'm afraid those markings are those of the Kingdom of Italy (Free Italy) post 1943. You'll want the triple fasces instead for 1942 in North Africa.

I don't suppose this falls under the UGBEAR rule? :P
What if Wargame stuck to timeframe?

I know the triple fasces are missing: I have them as decals and have to put them on.
But I thought both symbols (fasces & roundels) were sported together, one representing Italy the other the Real Aeronautica. So I was wrong?

I've certainly never seen it. Regia Aeronautica aircraft were wearing the fasces over France in 1940 and the Allied Cobelligerant air force used tricolour roundels like that in 1943, which they would not have done if there were any risk at all of mistaking them for Axis markings (see the Allied efforts to remove all red from their markings in the Pacific). Additionally, with where you've painted the tricolours, I'm interested to know where the triple fasces were going to be.

Actually, I've been searching for pictures or drawings of the setting I had in mind, but couldn't find any. Obviously, you are right, and the roundels will have to go ... :cry:
