Bolt Action Yanks 
I've been marking Year 8 geography exercise books all day today so no painting this weekend, which is becoming a bit of a theme of late. There's always a rush of work at the end of the Autumn term but this year it seems to be particularly bonkers, although nothing compared to primary and junior schools, so I can't really complain. Anyway, the good news is that my tank force for the late war US infantry platoon has now been expanded to include a 1/50th scale M4A3E8 'Easy Eight' 76mm Sherman, making a Tank War scenario a distinct possibility. It only cost me £20 as well, so cheaper than the unpainted, unassembled kit equivalent. I'll need to do a serious re-paint of the Korean War dragon markings, however, before I can deploy it alongside my other bog standard Shermans in the Ardennes, Rhineland or Alsace Lorraine.
