LW FJ list v.2 and 2nd army?

Got some great feedback on the FOW forums and have decided to modify my list accordingly.

1500pts LW Fortress Europe Fallschirmjager

Company HQ @ 225 pts
2 Panzerfaust SMG team
1 Panzerschreck team
1 Sniper
2 8cm Mortars

1 Fallschirmjäger Platoon @ 265 pts
1 Panzerfaust SMG team
3 Fallschirmjäger Squad

1 Fallschirmjäger Platoon @ 265 pts
1 Panzerfaust SMG team
3 Fallschirmjäger Squad

1 Fallschirmpionier Platoon @ 355 pts
1 HQ Section
1 Pioneer Supply 3-ton truck
3 Pioneer Squad

1 Fallschirmjäger Mortar Platoon @ 145 pts
1 Panzerknacker SMG team
2 Mortar Section

1 Fallschirmjäger Anti-tank Gun Platoon @ 245 pts
1 SMG team
4 7.5cm PaK40 (Gun shield)

TOTAL 1,500pts

Only gives me 5 Platoons but I can battlegroup the HQ mortars and a stand from the Mortar Platoon to create 2 mortar platoons each with 3 stands, or 1 of 6. Pak 40 platoon now more survivable and economical for points cost vs. StuGs - bring these in at 1750pts maybe?

Sniper added purely as I had 50pts left over and thought why not.

Also giving thought to starting a 2nd FOW army, not right now, but sometime next year once the FJ are all painted etc. Will prefer an allied force to ensure I can play either side, question is which one? Has to be something I am keen on playing from a historical viewpoint. Right now candidates are British Paratroops, a New Zealand company of some sort (MW Italian campaign) or maybe someone left field like Free French or Greek Mountain troops.
