Team Yankee, World War III

Team Yankee Design Notes

Earlier this week we made the disappointing announcement that the release date for Team Yankee was being delayed until 12 December. To make up for the delay and thank you for your patience, we are going to add one extra tank model to both of the army deals – Bannon's Boys and Potneckov's Bears – for all pre-orders.

More details on that announcement are available here... 

But we haven't let that this delay dampen our enthusiasm, and we trust you won't either. Take a look at Phil Yates's design notes, in which he talks about the genesis of the new game.

Breakthrough Assault:
Team Yankee - Shilka Review

We asked Adam to take an early look at the ZSU 23-4 'Shilka' and see what he thought of assembling and painting this new model. He's done a great job of putting this anti-aircraft beast through its paces with a great paint scheme.
