TEAM YANKEE - HAMMERFALL
This week see's the release of the brand new starter set for Team Yankee, Hammerfall. Similar to the El Alamein starter set for Flames of War this contains everything you need to get started playing Team Yankee: full rulebook, 3 x Soviet T-64's and 2 American M1 Abrams tanks. There's also dice, card terrain and a Start Here booklet.
I've tried a couple of times to get into Team Yankee, but with the big release of 4th Edition Flames Of War, plus TANKS I never found the time to get into it, despite painting a full British army for the Iron Maiden launch back in October last year.
Luckily, Gareth whom I work with at Battlefront has also decided to jump into Team Yankee and so we're building the forces that come in the starter set and learning how to play.
Naturally I'm doing the Soviets.
I've already painted the Potecknov's Bears army box (TSUAB1) so I'm a little further ahead than Gareth, but as we're building an initial force of 50 points, I'll be giving that a tweak.
Over the next few weeks there'll be posts on choosing the army, assembling the models, painting examples and battle reports.
I'll also be talking about Team Yankee in the next episode of the podcast, released on the 15th.
