Imperial Guard Battalion race to finish

In two weeks time we will be playing our anually 40k megagame at my local club. I want to finish my current availlable guard forces before that time (convieniently contributing to our local winter painting challenge). So I marched my battalion out onto the local table/impromptu parade ground to see what work turns out I have 1 and a half a week to paint 50 guardsmen. Better start glueing and undercoatingšŸ˜Ž.

The whole battalion in its current incarnation.
The first company: detached from the 4th Hollan Emperor's Own line infantry regiment: three infantry platoons of three squads each, all with a heavy weapon squad attached. 1 squad each of roughriders, ratling snipers and carapaced veterans as company support.
the 2nd Valhallan infantry company: two plattoons of three infantry squads with a special weapon team each, and a heavy weapons platoon of five heavy weapon squads. A small squad of roughrider scouts and ratlings as company support. Most of the armoured vehicles also belong to this company.
the third Catachan Devils company: two platoons of three infantry squads and a sniper squad, one heavy weapons platoon of five squads and 6 ogryns and Sly Marbo as company support
