This makes how many vehicles?

M5 Halftracks x5
Dingo x2
Carriers x8
Loyd Carrier x2
M4A4’s x10
M10 Achilles x2
Churchills x 3
Radio truck x1
Medium Truck x3
Supply Truck x4
Churchills x3
M5 Stuart x1
M5 Stuart Recce x1
Spitfire x1
Typhoon x1

The (grand) plan for 2015 is to focus mostly on this force (funds and time). What I don't have right now can wait till I'm halfway of building and painting. From the looks of it I will be making orders with Grubby Tanks for the Radio Truck and Dingoes (or get the S-Model kit) and Minimi (Medium trucks and Supply Trucks) plus what more I need for the infantry lists like crews etc. When the force is half done I will go over the list again and see if things need to be added (or deleted!)

At the same time, I want to use this list as the basis for the Fall of the Reich list. For that I will need to add some troops, 2 Fireflies and a Tempest. And paint a Typhoon without D-Day Markings perhaps? Not that much extra work really. 

For 3 extra Medium Trucks and 4 more M5 Halftracks I can make both lists fully motorised or mechanised. Hmmm.....

Oh, I just calculated that I need another box of Carriers, it seems I have only 2 which is enough for 6 of them. Oh well, added to the list of wants.
