Bolt Action US Airborne

So as I mentioned last week, one of my goals for this year is to build a US force for Bolt Action. I have a pile of US Airborne models so I dumped 'em all out on the desk to see what I could put together. What I came up with...

Lieutenant + Guard
Forward Air Observer + Guard
Medic + Guard

Veteran Infantry Squad (12 models)
     SMG for NCO, Lt MG Team
Veteran Infantry Squad (12 models)
     SMG for NCO, Lt MG Team

Support Teams
Bazooka Team
Bazooka Team
Lt Mortar Team

Greyhound Armored Car
Sherman Tank

2 1/2 Ton Truck (x2)

Not sure how the points shake out because of the options available, but I'm not really worried about it - it looks similar to the starter armies from the Warlord website so I should be good. Infantry units can be 5-12 models, but I have opted for the full squads because I can always field less or combine them into different ways to get three or four smaller units if I decide that works out better tactically. I'll adjust things to make it work. I actually have THREE Sherman Tank kits (Christmas present) which means I can also look at building a Tank War list.

Anyway, so far I have managed to finish the first Infantry Squad!

More up next week...
