WiP or in the course of painting (all Rubicon):

M4A3E8 - just finished it; still looking for crew
M4A3 (76mm) - the old kit, upgraded with new bits
M4A3 (75mm) - the old kit, upgraded with new bits
M4A3E4 - ie Oddball’s Sherman
3 Sherman IIIs
Sherman Ic Firefly
Sherman Ic Hybrid Firefly

There are more still in the box.  Sadly a couple of the finished builds got damaged in a recent move and need repairing.

Do you play Bolt Action and how many can you use at one time in the game ?

I do play Bolt Action, although not often and not for a while.  You can only use 1 Sherman in a game, although if you play Tank War you can take larger numbers.  Tank War isn't a great ruleset for armoured combat, however - I'm hoping they overhaul it.

There is a new quick tank game from the guys at "Too Fat Lardies", which seems to be very interesting!

It will be released on April the 9th, 2018, but has anyone tried "What a Tanker!" yet? (test players)

Apart from British-style stowage, I've added some detail to the rear plate on the vehicles with their sandshields partially removed (which covers the joins), and inserted the missing inner section of the rear sandshields.  One tank has a .30 cal mounted on the cupola, as the British seem to have preferred this to the .50 cal.

Looking good!
Extra storage gives them personality.
