I’m sure Chris will manage to work on this lot of Brits. I have some unpainted Comets myself.

If I played the Brits I’d spam nothing but Churchill Crocodiles! Fire everywhere!

Some good reference photos, I always like to have at least some stowage on my tanks, not a full gypsy caravan, with stuff hanging off everywhere but a bit to make it feel like it’s not just come off the production line.

Have a Cromwell platoon sat waiting to paint from last year….. might leave them till the British book arrives…. time to squeeze in some Yankees! 🙂

Many sources to get inspiration from. Or read oriskany´s history series.

Nice to here someone’s thoughts about their army and where they think it will be at the end of the journey

I’m starting to think that colours of war book would be a good buy.

Its always interesting how films influence wargamers. Band of Brothers had a big influence on my bolt action US paratroopers.

This concept of committing to this four year project is really inspiring.

I have too many unpainted Brits for mid war right now but I still want some of the late war goodies
