FOW1918 Armies and what to do next.

So far I have created a number of armies for FOW1918 and since I have not been actively playing or painting resently I thought I would take inventory and plan my future projects. Currently I have the following:
British (mid to late war)
One HG section
Four full infantry platoons with two Lewis gun team stands. Three extra rifle stands to replace one Lewis gun team for 1916 - 1917 config. One Hotchkiss LMG team so one platoon can represent dismounted cav. (replacing the Lewis gun).
One, two section Light Trench mortar battery (Stokes 3" mortars).
One Lewis Gun AA section, two stands.
One HMG platoon, four Vickers stands.
One, one section Medium Trench Mortar battery (Newton 6" mortars).
One full cavalry troop (mounted).
One full six gun Field Artillery battery (18pdrs)
Four Mk IV tanks, two male and two female.
Four Mk V tanks , all male.
Three Mk A 'Whippets'.
One full 17th Battalion (Armoured Car), Tank Corp section.
Three Sopwith Camels for Air Support.
Additional HG section - Australians.

French (mid to late war)
One HQ section with one 37mm IF gun team and one sniper.
Two and a half infantry platoons.
One HMG platoon, three Hotchkiss stands and one mortar stand.
One, two squad cavalry troop, lancers (mounted).
One full four gun Field Artillery battery (75's)
One St. Chamond tank.
One Schneider tank.
One full FT-17 tank platoon (two MG tanks, three gun tanks).
One SPAD for Air Support.

German (mid to late war)
One HQ section with two ATR teams, two Granatanwerfer teams, two Panzerknacker teams and one sniper.
Three full infantry platoons with two MG08/15 gun team stands.
One full Light Trench mortar battery with one AT gun team.
One, two section HMG platoon, four MG08 stands.
One full Division Trench Mortar battery.
One, two section cavalry troop (mounted).
One full four gun Field Artillery battery (7.7cm)
One full Independent Infantry Gun battery.
One full Divisional Stoss troop platoon with all options.
One full Flammenwerfer platoon.
Five Mk IV Beute tanks, three male and two female.
Three A7V tanks.
Tons of Air Support. Jasta 15 (late 1918), Jasta 11 (early 1918), Albatros fight for 1917.

Austro-Hungarian (mid to late war)
One HQ section. Using Germans
Three full infantry platoons. Using Germans
One full HMG section.
One, one section Field Artillery battery (80mm)
One full Independent Infantry Gun battery.
One full Divisional Storm patrol.
One Divisional Armoured Car platoon, one Junovicz, one captured Russian Austin and one captured Italian Lanzia.

Italian Alpini (mid to late war)
One HQ section with one sniper.
Two full infantry platoons.
One full scout platoon.
One full HMG platoon.
One full Light Trench Mortar battery.
One, one section Alpini Pack Artllery battery.
One Armoured Car platoon, one Lancia IZ, one Lancia IZm and one Bianchi AC.

Ottoman Turk (mid to late war)
One HQ section.
Two full HMG platoons.
One, two section Arab Cavalry troop (mounted).
One full Artllery battery.

Lead waiting in the wings are Australian Light Horse and United States.
I have a based the Turkish Infantry so that would be a good one to start.
I have enough Italian Alpini to finish up the Pack guns.
I also have some motorcycles to create the MMC for the British which would be very cool. I also have some Italian truck mounted artillery to mod into German AA trucks that were used as Anti-tank.

So much to do and so little time.

I really should get back on the Turks and finish them so I can then move to the LH. I know they would make for some great games and big draws a conventions.
