|"Wait, what are you going to do with this photo?"|
However, before the 4:30am drive to the hospital, I managed to do some work on my Stuarts:
|These pictures aren't fantastically well exposed...|
|... since I was taking them between nappy changes and didn't have time to set them up better.|
With the Stuarts completed, I decided that the next thing my US Armor company needs is an armored rifle platoon, since tanks without infantry support can be very vulnerable to assaults from enemy infantry (something I like to exploit with my Airborne company, heh heh heh). The .50 cal machine guns strapped to basically every vehicle the Americans fielded help a lot with this, but I still want some infantry support and so I started on the halftrack riders.
Like Kieron, I've realised that the recon platoon is basically bits of an armored rifle platoon plus jeeps. So, with the aim of acquiring table-ready platoons for as little work as possible, I've started to paint a halftrack and a jeep. I also started the anti-tank gun from the armored rifle platoon, since it was just sitting there.
Errr... that's it. I'm not sure when I'll next paint, or post, or anything, but as life with a daughter sinks in and gets less hectic, something like normal service should be resumed in due course, and I'll ramble on about it as boringly as possible here. I'm sure you're looking forward to that as much as I am!
