I had a thought. For my next project I would do a US Infantry armoured infantry platoon. US forces are not often on our battle fields and I've always thought they looked cool, too much time watching the Bridge at Remagen and Kelly's Heroes.
So a platoon is 56 figures in 5 M3A1 half tracks. I bought the halftracks from Dice and Decks - limited range but very cheap, they are the Warlord ones, and I bought a US infantry box and 60mm mortar from Perrys. Whole force will have cost £90 plus the tanks I'll get. I want Grants (or Lees - can never remember which was US and which was Brit and can't be bothered to look it up), however they only fought in North Africa and I want to use them for all the war. I'll probably end up with Grants and Shermans!
