1/72 WWII Wargaming- US Armored Forces

While I hadn't had much time for hobby activity the last bunch of months, I'm looking forward now to spending more time assembling, painting & gaming. I've finished a company of  sherman tanks and a bit of artillery support.
 I've used AB figures for most of my tank commanders but finally took the plunge and bought about a company each of their German and American infantry. I'll still be using the PSC Germans (and Americans now that they are out) but couldn't resist the wonderful sculpting of AB.

Aside from one diecast M4A3E8, the rest of the shermans are all Armourfast M4A3s or M4A376s.

The 155mm Long Tom and the M5 artillery tractor are both Hasegawa kits and are readily available. Along with their own gun models, AB figures makes a nice 9 piece 155mm crew set. They also make a 105mm crew set which I ordered for my M7 Priests.
After waiting for quite a while and finally deciding that the Italeri M7 priest 2 kit box might never be available again I looked at diecast models. These were going for anywhere from $22 to $30 a piece!...but I finally stumbled on an ebay store that had them for about $11 with reasonable shipping so I bought three.
Happy gaming & see you soon!
