From Curt:Very nice work Christopher. Vehicles may not be in your comfort zone but you've done a marvellous job on these tracks. I really like the aggressive weathering that you did on these and the crew look excellent. I look forward to seeing the rest of the force emerge from your hobby desk over the coming months.

US Armored Field Artillery Battery (22 Points)
My first entry into the challenge is a by adding to my FOW US Tank Company in the form of an Armored Field Artillery Battery. It consists of 3 M7 Priests, 2 M2 Halftracks and 1 M4 Sherman Observer Tank. The staff can be on foot, but I decided everything will be mounted.
Painting vehicles is not in my comfort zone and I vastly prefer painting foot troops, but tank company's are the quickest way to getting something on the table although it turns out it hasn't been all that quick for me as I've been puttering around on this army for quite sometime (over a year or two....) however it is fun doing the weathering on them!:-) In hindsight I would have done Airborne first and added a supporting vehicle here and there so my plan is to hopefully finish the tank company during the Challenge and start on the Airborne.
Since I blocked in the first layer of colours on the vehicles before the Challenge I will score myself zero points for them, but for the crew full points at 22. I started them along while back, but then put them up as I got distracted by something else!
