when you start realizing that you have too many units to play (and finish) a normal game.
Finally finished the vehicules and decided that I won't give them marking as I am still thinking what to use.
The two army photographed miss the French squad and 40 German zombies, plus additional units still under paint :
- German cameraman
- German sidecar
- German officers and sentries
- 12 British para
- 5 German Rats
- Clive Goddard
- few civilians/resistants
Otherwise, I am quite proud of the German force. Vehicules are a mix of Tamiya Die Cast, Urban Mammoth Viridian, Warlord and Tamiya Kits. The German have 2 characters commanders : The Ogre General and the SWD officer in the sdkfz 251.
The British vehicules are a mix of Tamiya Die Cast and Warlord. The British have 2 characters, the Liberty unit on Harley Davidson and Mr Smith (not appearing on the photo, he declined the group photo invitation)

|Alien Objective Markers|
Being recently in the States, it affected me in 2 ways:
- No painting
- More minis
For the no painting, it's rather because I want to avoid my paints and other stuffs to be stopped by customs. I tried to take paints in the past when traveling in Asia and never had an issue. But with the FAA and the Homeland Security I preferred avoiding any misunderstanding.
Regarding the minis, I fell again in the usual : Browsing, clicking, buying. I was visiting FRPGames (http://www.frpgames.com/) as they usually a great range of unknown/great miniatures with high discount.
I ended up with about 30 miniatures, some out of print, other to complete my collection/optimizing the shipping cost. in total, the cost is about $137 including the shipping fee, or about $4.3 per mini, and some are using 40-50mm basing.
