US. Airborne project added

My friend at our club has begun late war Germans for Disposable Heroes(platoon level gaming) which has me quite excited as I've been asking him to do so. This gives me the chance to start a US Airborne platoon (Artizan miniatures) I've had my eye on for some time and have collected for. 
I'll probably paint them with army painter and highlights as they are both ready made for that type of painting method and it's quicker allowing us to game sooner.:-)
This will push back Chaos in Cairo and Fallschirmjäger to a latter date, but don't worry for those interested they will still get done at some point.
Originally I had plans to do Fallschirmjäger, but I realize they will take far longer then I first thought due to the complexity in painting them. Also, another friend I originally made plans to game Disposable Heroes with  is doing British Commando's and he is also having a difficult time in production rate which combined with me put Disposable Heroes gaming possibilities to a virtual stop. However, this has all changed since another friend joined and started Late War Germans giving me a chance to switch to Airborne for the moment thus greatly speeds things up and I expect some gaming to start within the couple months. Of course, I'll be posting my Airborne units as I finish them.:-)  
As a note we played our first zombie game yesterday and had a blast. So, I count the zombie project goal a success now that it's painted and gamed to a playable level, but as all projects the door is still open for more additions when in the mood.
As we gamers know a project is rarely ever finished, but is rather counted a success when enough is painted and games are played.
