West German Template (TAT03) West German Template (TAT03)

Laser-cut acrylic gaming accessories can enhance your Team Yankee gaming experience. The Artillery and Salvo Template shows who is hit by a bombardment, handily integrating both sizes of template in one handy piece. The printed cardboard template included with the three army deals – Bannon’s Boys, Potecknov’s Bears and Kampfgruppe Müller – does the job just fine. But this sturdy transparent template, customised with the West German flag, is perfect for those who want a more resilient and prestigious option befitting the esprit de corps of their Bundeswehr troops.

European Farm (BB204)

The latest fully painted Battlefield in a Box building is the European Farm. Constructed of grey stone with a tile roof, this building will work perfectly on its own in a rural setting, representing a farm house, or equally as a suburban house on the edges of a town. Although it is designed for Team Yankee games, it could just as easily feature on your World War II battlefield.

All sprues now available individually

By now our library of plastic models has gotten quite large, and we are proud of the variety and quality of the units available. There are always reasons why you might need just one model without wanting to buy a whole platoon box. Perhaps you just need one more tank to fill out your optimal army build, or maybe you’d like to try a conversion project. Due to popular demand, we are now pleased to make each of our plastic sprues now available individually, giving you complete flexibility.
