Heavy Mortar platoon (except for the PIAT which I haven't bothered painting as I doubt I will ever use it). This platoon took me far to long to paint. I painted the first stand in September and finished the platoon in April. Fortunately they still look fairly cohesive due to the basing.

|I am a bit bored of the same 4 poses. I included a few riflemen to break up the monotony. I definitely don't want to paint a 25 pounder platoon (same artillery poses).|

With these few models I have a 1650 tournament list totally painted. I still have some more models left to paint as you can see from my painting chart below. I want to add a breaching group for an Overlord list and I really need to paint a British Rifle platoon (which will take me forever!).
I've included my army list for Gottacon below. I am reasonably happy with the list. For the next tournament I would probably drop something to get the Stuarts up to four again as I find them so useful. I'd really like to switch the paratrooper platoon for some Lorried Rifles. I did a bit poorly in the tournament, finishing 6th out of 12 after losing my first three games 6-1, 5-2, and 6-1. I did a bit better on Sunday winning 5-2 and 6-1. I was fortunate enough to win Best Painted though, which was a real honour as there were some very well painted companies there.
Thanks for visiting. Come back soon for some Mobelwagens, King Tigers, Panzer IVs, and a TKS Tankette!
