Default Afrika Korps Themed IG

This will be the new log of my Afrika Korps themed army. It will begin as a show army however it will eventually turn into a gaming army.

This is what I am getting so far:
Green = Received
Red = In transit/On order

2x Old Cadian Battleforces
1x New Cadian Battleforce
3x Chimeras
6x Special Weapons Blisters
1x Leman Russ
1x Heavy Weapon Team

1 Command HQ
74 Cadian Troops (combined)
3 HW Squads
3 LRBT
1 Sentinel
3 Chimeras

[hr]

This is the Uniform Scheme I have chosen to do:



I may darken the armour on his chest but I am settled on the Clothing style. Cloth is Kommando Kahki, Armour is Desert Yellow, Flesh is Tallarn Flesh, and the model is washed in Ogryn Flesh.
Any Comments and Criticisms appreciated.

To paint this army I bought the GW Spray Gun. I used one in store and it worked fine so it'll do the job I need it to (undercoat).

I will be making a Field Marshal Erwin Rommel character for this army. I'll look at my new IG 'dex and figure out what to do (just arrived this morning ;D).

Without further ado let the project log begin!

Just giving a quick update.

I am still waiting for my orders from the UK to arrive (3x Battleforces). The new cadian battleforce isn't released until the 16th hopefully I should see it arriving in 2 weeks along with my other two battleforces.

So far I am working on a stat line for Field Marshal Erwin Rommel. I looked at the game Flames of War and saw a couple of rules that I quite liked "Rommel at the Point"; units in LOS (range maybe?) may re-roll failed leadership tests. "Fingerspitzegefuhl (Fingertip feeling)"; Basically Creeds Tactical Genius special rule.

Looking in the IG 'dex I may just use the Company Commander Stat line and in the HQ squad add Carapace armour. After all he did survive a strafing run by a P-51 Mustang in an open topped vehicle.

Why don't you use the rules for Lord Castellan Creed?

Sounds like a plan. I suppose if I just mention to my opponent that Rommel is a count as Creed that it should be all OK. But I won't use the "For the Honour of Cadia!" special rule. Sounds too much like Patton.
I may replace the weapon though.... not too sure on that at the moment.
