I'm actually very excited about the upcoming release of the new Pacific War books and will try to add some related armies to the tail end of this Challenge. I've got a few odds and ends plus some non Battlefront 15mm Pacific stuff so should have enough to field relatively complete armies.
Sadly, I'll probably end up painting the same tanks (Chi_Ha's) in two different scales (28 and 15mm). I can fully justify the "need" to have the same tank in multiple scales - that's not the sign I have a problem is it?
Also on the painting table were 5 Panzer III's (late war versions). These are also Battlefront miniatures and had been primed to be painted for the 3rd or 4th challenge and then lost in the mess of my storage closet.
These are painted up for the Italian theater and were a nice change of pace. The camo is a simple form of dry bushing in a stippling manner but comes out nicely.
There was a lot of work done on my nautical submission for next week - lets just say it's a lot more involved than I anticipated.
Anyway todays submission should net me 93 points:
23 artillery crewman and command: 46points
5 tanks: 30 points
1/2 crewman: 1 point
Painted the same army in two different scales, so far I have (mostly) avoided that one. "Found" figures in a primed state from previous challenges. yep, been there done that and got the T-shirt. Sounds like you are well and truly assimilated Miles, my condolances. Anyway on to the submission, which is great. Those are some seriously big guns and look every bit the part, even if they should be in a another room instead of on the table (FOW beef there). Those tanks looks every bit the business too. I agree with your totals and look forward to your being a salty dog on Nautical Theme day.
