It is time to make the official plunge into EW. And the result will be to totally change my painting table order of business. So I will either get a ton of stuff painted or I will become another one of "those guys" with a ton of unpainted lead. I am not giving odds.
I am about to place an order for a bunch of EW British armor. Can't help it. But for some strange reason, I just can't make myself by the BAR box for Blitzkrieg. It makes me feel a little "dirty" to even consider it. For those of you who do not know, go check out the forum at FoW on anything related to BAR.
But I picked up Hellfire and Back yesterday and I am getting hooked.
So this is what I am thinking:
1) Field the BAR from HaB. It is a little different, but the cool color scheme for the EW Brit Desert is very neat. Not sure I can get it painted, but what the heck.
2) Field the Honey Stuart list. Ok, I am a Stewie fan. I mean how can you not be when they name a tank after the cartoon character!! ;-)
3) Finish my LW Cromwell list. I am liking the PDF of the 11th Armor from Market Garden. In a pinch, I can just run the Croms from Hell's Highway.
4) Field the LW American Light Tank Company. Stewies again!!
That will still leave me with needing to finish 2 full Brit Para / Airlanding companies, para arty, para recon jeeps, para AT guns, US ARP #2, 15 half tracks, urban bases (King & Kerr as well as BF plastic bases), Arnhem Bridge, Arnhem Brit HQ, 3 other buildings, dust clouds (HaB) plus one more Croc, 2 more Shermans, 2 more Stewies (in addition to the ones above), 2 more Croms and 3 Dingos.
Are you $%#@ me!!!!
I have decided that the quality of my paras and infantry will suffer, but the armor will still get the same treatment. I just cannot get this list of stuff painted any time soon unless I come up with another way. And I am not sending it out to do. In reality, I do like painting. So the infantry and guns will suffer a bit.
Wish me luck!!
