Inspired by PaulyJ's forthcoming Bolt Action escalation campaign I shall be painting/putting together my fledgeling Belgian force. I see it as the ideal oppurtunity to get these guys built/painted/finished as 600 points to start with will be hard work but the 200 point jumps between games should be easily achievable.
So far I have the following models, some under-coated; either Army Painter Leather Brown for regular troops or British Armour Green for Chasseurs Ardennes:
(sorry about the hashness of the white on my spray board!)
That adds up to a pretty sizeable force:
Using the above points that gives me a nice 1166 to 1286 points range, although it would have to be 3 reinforced platoons above 750 points (assuming my mental arithmetic is right this early in the day )3 x regular 2nd Lts + extra man (obviously these could be different hq aspects but for now 2nd lt is good enough) @ 60 each =180
4 x 10 man Regular (again could be inexperienced) squads including BAR and SMG @ 108 each (or 128 with VB launchers) = 432 (512)
2 x Veteran 10 man SChasseurs Ardennes squads @ 138 each (158 with VB launchers) = 276 (316)
Regular Antitank Rifle = 30
Veteran Antitank Rifle = 39
2 x Regular Light Howitzer @ 45 = 90
Veteran Light Howitzer @ 54
Regular Medium Howitzer (FREE!)
Regular Anti tank Gun @ 75
Regular T15 light tank @ 60
Regular Utility Tractor (for the medium howitzer) @ 48 points
I'll update this as I go along. The next step is to wrangle a 600 point list from that lot.
