Flames of War British Rifles

Never let it be said that I am not easily distracted. Honestly, I am not sure anybody would ever say that. Having recently rediscovered the joys of the excellent 'Company of Heroes' game on the PC I decided to launch myself into another mini hobby, namely Flames of War. I managed to pick up a British Rifles Company for a good price on EBay, and have started to paint them. I imagined that painting 15mm figures would be relatively stress free, simple and speedy, as you don't have to worry too much about details, shading etc (an more importantly, you don't have to paint their eyes) but to be honest their a bit of a pain in the backside. My German force will be mostly tanks, with as few infantry as possible.
I will also have to make/paint up some suitable 15mm scenery to. Some of the VBCW stuff might be able to suits scale-wise (hills, rivers etc) but I think for the most part I will have to start from scratch. I am, however, determined to make sure this doesn't distract me too much from the VBCW stuff I am making.
