In honor of TMP's new board (gotta love new boards, right?), I bring you this post. Actually, it just sort of matched up with what I had going on. I've been working on various units for 15mm WWII and modern skirmish forces. I'm nowhere near done, but I had a bunch that were painted but waiting on basing, so I decided to sit down and finally put the finishing touches on them. Quite a few of these forces are not new, but are simply an expansion of previously completed forces. For example, a couple months ago I bought, painted, based, and posted a QRF Modern French force. But then I decided it wasn't big enough, so I went and got another dozen or so troops and had to take them from start to finish to complete the platoon. Quite a bit of what I finished up was that sort of thing, though there were also a few new forces which, as is my custom, will get their own blog post.
I went through the rest of the scenarios and determined all the gear I needed to play, and that's what you're looking at:
A Command Element for each side.
Six rifle squads for the Brits, four for the Germans.
An MG for each side, two mortars for the Brits, one for the Germans, two PIATs for the Brits, and one Panzerschreck for the Germans.
A 17-pdr and 6-pdr ATG for the Brits, a PaK-43 and a PaK-40 for the Germans.
A Typhoon fighter-bomber for the Brits (only one scenario, but I wanted it).
Five Universal Carriers for the Brits and three Sdkfz 251 halftracks for the Germans.
The Brits have four Churchills, four Sherman Vs, one Firefly, and four Achilles (M10 w/17-pdr).
The Germans have four Tigers, a Panther, three Pz IVHs, 2 Stug IIIs, and a Sdkfz 251 (halftrack with 75mm ATG mounted).
So, that's what I got done last weekend. As I mentioned, all new forces shown above will have a separate blog entry to showcase the force with closeups of everything. Meanwhile, the boy and I are set to embark upon a new campaign, I think you're gonna like it!
