Team Yankee - 15mm West Germans

When Team Yankee first came out I told myself that I wouldn't get into it because I already had so many armies for WWII plus two for WWI and two for Arab-Israeli (Fate of a Nation), then Battlefront released the West Germans and I caved!  The models looked great I had to commit.  Tomorrow one of the locals is putting on a small tournament which will be my first solo games...going to get destroyed probably, but I have to start learning somewhere!  Unfortunately I procrastinated working on this army for a while, so I haven't completed the infantry...I'll be using just armor.  I will post an update when I finish the infantry.  What I have completed are:  6x Leopard 1's, 6x Leopard 2's, 7x Marder, 4x Luchs, 2x Gepard, 2x Roland, 4x PAH helos, and 3x Jaguars.  I did the Jaguars as a bit of a hybrid since they come with both the HOT and TOW missiles...I may invest in 3 more hulls in the future, but let's see how they play first.  I may also add some air or mortars in the future...I just can see having artillery or rockets on the table as it goes against reality.  So here's what I've completed:
 Leopard 1's
 Leopard 2's
 Jaguar 1's
 Jaguar 2's
 PAH AT Helos
 Another view of the Helos

Next up will be the West German infantry and then some fantasy stuff for Kings of War!
