Quick! Before ze germans arrive.....

You said those sausages would be ready in 5 minutes 10 minutes ago!

So first basic army fully painted for Team Yankee. My yanks are raging considering I had them before the official release (thanks to the Beast of war boot camp).

it took longer than expected because I had a varnish incident on the helicopters which ended up meaning repainting them from zilch.... not happy with GW "purity seal" also known as "layer of crap"
