I have been working away buying and priming more figures for the British although the weather is now turning against me for priming outside. Well to date I have acquired and primed the 1st Special Service Brigade of 4 consisting of 3rd, 4th, 6th Commando and 45th (Royal Marine Commando) which also includes the Free French commandos. This included Lord Lovat's piper!! I have built and primed the Royal Marine 5th Independent Armoured Support Battery - Centaurs and Sherman Op tanks. I have built and primed are two of the artillery regiments which each need a carrier OP vehicle.
I have bought the 41st Royal Marine Commando and engineers for 17th, 246 and 253rd Field Companies - not yet primed. Also acquired heavy 3.7" AA gun - not built or primed yet. I now have the vehicles now for both Infantry brigades of 3 Battalions. What is left? Well I need one more Artillery regiment and some HQ vehicles. I now realised that this will not be ready for June 2019 so I am going to set this back to June 2010 when the 6th June is a Saturday. I think it has turned out to be a bigger project than I first thought. I am now turning my attention to rules which work on a platoon/ Company level that is quick play.
