Leopard  Wayne’s West German Leopard 2 Panzer Kompanie: Part Two
with Wayne Turner

Here we are some seven months since the Leopard launch weekend and I have my first 100 points of West Germans completed. A lot has happened since then, we’ve released Iron Maiden and Volksarmee, but I have managed to stay relatively on target despite these distractions. I did stop to paint a few more bits for my Soviets, but I’ve been mainly focused on getting these guys done.
So what have I painted? Surprisingly I’ve managed to stay close to my plan outlined in part one.

So I’ve gone over my 100 point target, but haven’t painted the Fliegerfaust Gruppe yet. However, I’ve painted an extra two Gepards and an extra two Luchs over my initial target.

I painted them all in 3-colour NATO camouflage using an airbrush. I tried to follow the pattern as closely as possible using photos from books and online as a reference.

Next, I plan to finally get the Fliegerfaust Gruppe done before moving on to some more panzergrenadiers. I’ve assembled another four Marders and plan to make the panzergrenadiers into a formation of their own. I’ve also got another three Leopard 2s assembled.

I plan to add Panzeraufklärungs Kompanie, for which I’ve assembled some Fuchs and Leopard 1 tanks. I’ve put together a Jaguar 1 Jagdpanzer Zug as well, likely to support the panzergrenadiers. I still need some artillery, but I haven’t decided what yet.

Anyway, I hope to have another update in a few months’ time.

Enjoy!
