Destroyed Supply Truck - FOW Objective Marker

This is an objective marker I've painted up for my German Stutzpunkt defensive force. The piece was originally designed for what I think was an Italian village scene with cobble stone pavement and a destroyed wall. Since I wanted to use this for my North Africa German army I covered the cobble stones with sand, but kept the wall. I imagine on the Mediterranean coast of North Africa tile roofs aren't all that uncommon, or at least weren't back in 1942.

The scene shows what I believe is a Mercedes truck that was knocked out by a near miss shell burst. Cargo is spilled about and the truck sits pushed up against the broken wall. Other than re-decorating the base the only other things I did was to paint it up and add some Silfor grass tufts on the open areas. I have one more objective to go for this army which will featured a destroyed Panzer IIc tank. The rest of the scene I haven't figured out yet.

In my 2012 painting totals I'm going to count this as a vehicle. I think it's the category that fits the closest.

That's a nice piece. Who made it, or did you scratch-build.convert it?

It's a pre-made piece I got from the LHS. I'll ask them tomorrow who makes it.

It`s little pieces like this that can give that extra interest to a game.

That is very cool. I played my first game of FoW this morning and really enjoyed it.

The objective is made by Forged in Battle miniatures.
