Historicon 2017
100 Years of Tanks
This years theme was 100 Years of Tanks and thanks to some amazing Flames Of War and Team Yankee players (and games) Historicon certainly celebrated this milestone with plenty of action.

Panzerschreck 2017
Panzerschreck may not be as big as Historicon but it is a favourite with the team here in New Zealand thanks to the road trip, a great weekend of gaming as well as a visit to Chateau Allen where we get to stay with our resident sculpter Evan.

Red Thunder Preview: Soviets in World War III Red Thunder
Soviets in World War III
When Team Yankee kicked off we gave you two sets of intelligence briefings in the rulebook to get everybody started, based on the forces featured in H W Coyle’s novel Team Yankee. Since then we have released Leopard (West German forces), Iron Maiden (British forces) and Volksarmee (East German Forces). Red Thunder is our first book to revisit the forces initially featured in Team Yankee. Red Thunder expands and enhances the forces available in Team Yankee for the Soviet Army.

Chris' T-64 Tank Battalion
Phase One: The Requisition

When Team Yankee initially came out I knew I wanted to build my own Team Yankee rather than a Soviet force. Over the past year we have released British, West Germans and East Germans and my painting backlog has grown as I've started two new armies. Now with the release of Red Thunder I've completely failed my Last Stand check and decided to go headlong into another new army with a T-64 Battalion...

Red Thunder Live Launch Battle Report
We had a very busy day in the office with our Live Launch, but we still managed to play a Total War Game. Wayne and Phil lined up against Chris and Andrew to see whether the best of NATO could hold off anything the Soviets (and East Germans) could throw at them.
