The Avenger's Initiative

So here is the group shot that got the ball rolling

So after playing around with easy army I have found the perfect fit for my latest FoW army idea.  I'm calling it the Avenger's Initiative because the army is going to be lead by Capt America (using the rules for Lt Spiers from the Nuts book, has bullet proof cover even in the open, tell me that doesn't sound like a certain shield).   My son and I have been watching Avenger's Earth's Mightiest Heroes and that help fill in the blanks.

HQ
OC - Capt America (aka Lt Spiers)
2IC - Bucky

Combat Platoons (aka the Capts Commandos)
Parachute Infantry with HQ, 2 x Bazookas, 1 x 60mm mortar and 6 rifle stands lead by Taccoa Sgt
Parachute Infantry with HQ, 2 x Bazookas, 1 x 60mm mortar and 6 rifle stands lead by Taccoa Sgt

Weapons Platoon (Howling Sgt Nick Fury)
LMG platoon with 1 section (4 LMGs)

Support Platoons
Sherman Platoon with 1 x Jumbo (The Incredible Hulk), 1 x Sherman (Black Panther) and 2 x Easy Eights (Thor and Ironman)
Tank Destroyers platoon with 4 x M18s (Hawkeye, Black Widow, Wasp and Ant Man)
Glider Artillery with 3 x 105mm guns and jeeps


Works out to 1650 on the nose.  With Game Summit's tournament in Feb I wonder if I can have it all done in time....

  2. All Battlefront models: US Paratroopers for the infantry and guns teams and for all the tanks and Tank destroyers I'm going to try and free hand paint the comic logo of the hero it will represent on the side, like nose art.
