As mentioned in my previous post, I am undertaking the 6 Months Miniature Mountain Reduction Painting Challenge. I spent the evening today trying to sort through my own little miniature mountain in order to try and determine what I have outstanding and what I have remaining to purchase.
The painting tracker template was care of Admiral Drax and was a really useful template. Thanks Chris!
Somewhere along the line I have gone from just a Infantry company list for FoW to a Armoured Squadron list and a Recon list - as well as starting units mainly needed for Battlegroup overlord... This has all resulted in a range of models getting bought and a range of different threads to my collection. As the chart will show:
Soooo... Yeah. Bloody Hell!
The scary thing is this leaves me with 2 Universal Carriers that are 'spare', along with a Sherman V that I have no current use for - I may kit it out as a OP tank for BGO (OMG!, I am already adding to the list!).
One of the issues I have come up with using the HD list is that the Highlanders really are stuck in the Normandy era with it. While a lot of other British lists (like the newer 53rd Division list and the Market Garden lists) have moved on into the mid late war (and the Germans, US and Russia are all in late late war). I am focusing my force around operation Totalise (August 1944) but it would be nice to have some late late war options (like Archers and the loss of the Reluctant rating). And as for the lack of a proper independent Armored Brigade list...
