So about 6 months ago I did my first post on my late war British (the guards armoured box) and l'm now waiting for the dip to dry so I can add decals and varnish to the last model I have for the list (a 5th Sherman crab).
Land Matress, kangaroos, crabs, just don't come up that often and as mentioned in the BL 5.5 case , just because they come up doesn't mean they are cheap. But in the end I've saved a fair bit of money with this army .
I'm glad I've tried it, but TBH I don't think I'll use it for a project again, I like my more colourful washes for shading.
As for gaming, well the nice thing has been the versatility the models have provided! They have been at various points, Brits, Canadians, Polish, and kiwi's. And have also been fearless, confident, reluctant trained and veteran. A nice variety of options if you ask me. Some lists have stood out more to me than others. Principally Canadian armoured recce/rifles and welsh guards. If you add my British para's in basically it's the market garden book for me!
Oh how I want to love you! These lists has access to pretty much everything, but it costs, not just the veteran price but the 10point Canadian premium.
