Next Big Wargame Project - Sword Beach D-Day 6th June 1944 - Update 4

I have been waylaid a bit on this project painting WW2 1:3000 scale ships for a future Guadalcanal Campaign with Richard along with hundreds of 1;600 scale planes. In addition I have also been adding to my Dearth in Dark Continent ranges by painting lots of Foundry 28mm Colonial African figures. However I am now completely focused on getting this project ready for next June. I have started to layout the terrain to work out what I need to complete the table. I want to create an additional 200mm deep beach section to add to the water sections I have, some of which will have sea walls. For the German Strong points I have been inspired by Mel the Terrain Tutor (Link https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx_aro8CTHw7ZD5H661hC6Q) to create all the German strong points using foam and resin emplacements. A few pictures are attached of the initial layouts. There are some more buildings, hedges and beach obstacles to add....

Painting has started on the landing craft see attached pictures of some LCTs and LCMs.(all from Britannia miniatures). In addition I have added to the German artillery of 1716th artillery regiment, a Skoda 100mm Gun and a French 155mm gun (Early War Miniatures) for strong points Morris and Daimler respectively. Also acquired some Heavy British AA, a 3.7 inch gun (SHQ) for the beach group and Valentine Bridge-layer (Armourfast vehicle with conversion set from S and S models) which was attached to HQ of Staffordshire Yeomanry 27th Armoured Brigade. These have been made and primed, ready for painting.

Working on the LCIs and a Rocket Support Ship. I have run out of RN Light Grey B5 paint from colourcoats who are out of stock so the LCAs are on hold at the moment.I have started to paint Wave 1 the 13/18th Hussars with their DD Sherman tanks
