WWII Project Next Steps

With my WWII project I've got plenty of unpainted plastic and metal to deal with before I start buying much more stuff.

The next tasks are:

  1. finish the basing on the figures that I've matt varnished.
  2. retouch/finish the figures with damaged paintwork (about a dozen or so).
  3. sort out the next batch of undercoated figures for painting - I'll probably concentrate on the US paras/infantry for a Battle of the Bulge game.
  4. sort out the undercoated Revell and Italeri late war German infantry for the Bulge game and paint them
  5. do a couple of quick games with Nuts! from Two Hour Wargames and Flying Lead from Ganesha Games.
  6. finish off US Para and German Volksgrenadier platoons.
  7. get started with some of the vehicles that I've got hanging around.
  8. do some games with Nuts! including vehicles and Too Fat Lardies' Troops, Weapons & Tactics.
  9. get on with all the other stuff that I've got including other wargames periods and projects
At the moment I've got all the following to work on:
  • Esci German Infantry (early-mid war), British Infantry
  • Revell German Infantry (late war winter), German Panzergrenadiers (mid war), British Infantry (late war), British Paratroopers
  • Italeri German Elite Infantry (late war winter), US Infantry (late war winter), Anti-Tank teams 
  • Armourfast StugIIIG, Pzkfw IVG, Sherman M4A3 (75mm)
  • Airfix Opel Blitz and Pak40 - possibly going to sell and replace with other items as these are a bit small in comparison to the other stuff and not quick build wargames models.
  • SHQ German Infantry (assorted early and late war including HMG), late war Sdkfz 7, Kubelwagen.
  • Zvezda German HMG (early-mid war)
  • Platoon 20 US Paras, Russian Naval Infantry
  • Pegasus 75mm le IG18
Which should keep me busy. Main needs are some Halftracks for the Allies and Germans, Jeeps and some more AT guns.
