I already have a good size Soviet force and my friend has a good size German force and I know a few other people who might like to give the Bolt Action rules a try so having a second army ready to play would be nice.
So I checked my painting note book in which I keep sporadic notes on the paint colours I use to paint various armies and I had actually written down the paint colours I had used which was a pleasant surprise.
From my initial painted group I am adding another squad, a MMG, a mortar, artillery spotter, a sniper team and a 6pdr AT gun which still leaves another squad, sniper team, LMG team, 2 PIAT teams, and a few assorted soldiers.
I mounted all the figures I wanted and then primed them except the squad which my friend had previously mounted and primed.
So there is still work to do but at least I have gotten a good start. I will finish off the base colours and then shade and highlight. I also have a couple of jeeps and a M5 halftrack I can dig out if I want. They are slightly older models and do not compare to the new models for detail(and scale for that matter!) out now but they will do in a pinch.
