You'll be pleased to know that I've already finished my four Scouts.

SMG toting infiltrators? Yes please!

Is 4 the minimum or a fixed squad?

No, my spare sniper is joining the unit as he's dressed in a similar way.

I've now done my medium mortar. I'm on a roll.

I'll finally be able to return fire...

Once you get going bolt action stuff is really easy to paint with them having uniforms! Matt might have a guy done by the end of the month...

It also helps having previously worked out what colours you're using. I'm on auto pilot at the moment.

Next up...bomb dogs!

I think they look shit. You definitely shouldn't buy all those guys with assault rifles...

Their faces are a bit gurney, but that's Warlord's style with their more recent stuff.

Yeah, veterans with assault rifles are bound to be rubbish...

Think I might get them anyway...

Are the British back on hold then?

On that subject, what do you already have for the British?

Not on hold, just planning ahead. Have sprues for 20 infantry, but you can make a light mortar, a sniper and a piat team out of thoae as well. And a command pack, so that's a medic and my free artillery observer too. Plus the secret Santa transport

Don't forget the Dingo. All it needs is some bodies (any will do), two british heads and an LMG that you're unlikely to use elsewhere...

It's defence 8+ - that's almost a tank!

What would you use it for though?! Its a mobile lmg!

Zipping behind enemy lines and running over weapons teams!

Putting pins on infantry that can't hurt it.

Looking cool!

I thought you had to be tracked to run over weapons teams?

I can see what you mean, it's just expensive for doing that!

Ah bollocks. It's just tanks that can assault.

Okay, it is an expensive LMG...but it's a free expensive LMG which helps build your force and means you can leave armoured cars until later in your purchasing plan. It also allows you to practice doing British armour on something you're not overly fussed about messing up.

And it looks cool.

Think of it like your Kubelwagon that you never use any more. Smile

I think they look fine, maybe the guns are a bit chunky but then I'm not certain what size they should be. Probably a decent unit to have, presumably quite a lot of points though?

180 points for a full squad. That's not bad for 20 shots a turn with no penalty for moving

Does it come with targets moulded into their hats, or do you have to paint them on?

I'll just blow them up on Matts massively cheaty bombs first

Looking at the lists, those assault rifle armed troops could be used as inexperienced volks grenadiers.

When they test for being green though, theres a chance they may end up as veterans!
