A nice collection Brett, and nice painting. The mortars being small crew-served weapons I'll score as infantry (I think I can see 4 of them - let me know if that's incorrect); the vehicle passengers/crew score half points - I can see 7 in the trucks and 1 tank commander.That will actually give you 166 points.

From BrettM - 15mm First try on WW2 (166 points)
I have been wanting to get into WW2 gaming ever since I got back into the hobby years ago. Finally my brother got stationed back here so I had someone to play them with. We settled on Flames of war instead of bolt action. Of course my luck Team Yankee comes out not far after making purchases on models, terrain, and paints. Below is the US stuff I have painted up so far. Next time will be German and Team yankee since it was just to cool to resist.
Everything in one shot.
All the infantry painted up. I had some mortars, bazookas, MGs and rifles of course
I found this wood comb to hold up the minis for a nice front shot on these guys
First time using decals. They don't look to bad however this close you can see the circle around the star. Even used the Micro Sol from what I read works well but guess not close up and under a light?
Another close up of the trucks. I thought everything came out nice for a basic paint job
Also used some drybrushing of brown to add some "mud" on the bottom of the tanks and on the trucks. Decals look better on the tanks I believe.
Finished it off with the names on the tanks. Figured the Commander all the way out should be named Diablo just seemed fitting since he's going to lead them to crush the Germans.
Well thats all I have on this post. This was the box set of Grimballs Beasts however after I moved on from airbrushing the basecoat I realized the 3 pershings in the box didnt get quite a good enough coat. So they will have to wait a bit to be painted. Up next is a german box set.
Score wise I have 10 vehicles at 6 points each. I have 45 infantry not counting mortars, gunners, drivers, or commanders on vehicles. I do have 6 passengers in the trucks that are painted same as infantry. All this comes to 102 points. Unless the passengers do not count.
