D-Day German Preorders
The Germans had spent years building up their defences along the French coast. Behind this Atlantic Wall, a dozen veteran panzer and parachute divisions, rebuilding after desperate battles on the Eastern Front, prepared to throw any Allied landing back into the sea. On D-Day, 6 June 1944, the greatest air and sea invasion of the war crossed the English Channel to land on the beaches of Normandy. Although they were unable to throw the Allies back into the sea, the German forces held back the Allied tide for more than three months in some of the most intense fighting of the Second World War. The battle for Europe had begun in earnest.

The Big Four Of Late War

Big Four Of Late-War
Chris' M10 Tank Destroyers
Work on the Big Four armies continues. This week Chris has finished off his second platoon, giving him a unit of hard hitting tank destoyers armed with the (most excellent) 17 pdr gun.

Stay tuned for more as he is about to finish his Shermans and Wayne has more Panzers nearing completion!

I call them Achilles...

A Tale Of Four Gamers like no other!
Over the next FOUR YEARS Casey, Chris, Victor and Wayne are building new armies for Late-War, starting with the Fortress Europe Starter Army Deals and then progressively tweaking them, adding new units and painting new models as the Late-War Journey progresses.

Over on their Instagram page you can keep up with all the behind the scenes developments as they share images from their painting desks at home. Who knows what you might see...

Alex's Hit the Beach Germans
Way back in the distant days of this time-mid 2018, myself and a friend split the very last copy of Battlefront’s Open Fire! Two-player box set from our local game store in Hamilton, an hour-and-a-half south of Auckland. My first foray into building and painting yielded a passably painted grenadier company, a V1 flying bomb that now sits on my desk, and a trio of StuGs that have fallen victim to a continuous cycle of stripping and repainting.

Fantastic Plastic Forces

Fantastic Plastic Forces
I’m a plastics guy from way back – if it’s not plastic I have a difficult time including it in my force.  I’ve always wanted to base an American army around a Tank Destroyer Company but didn’t relish the idea of resin M20’s and Jeeps in the security and HQ sections so I held off.  When I found out that we were changing those to plastic the game was afoot.

The Bundesheer at War
The Bundesheer is an army we’ve seen mentioned in passing in several of the books describing World War Three in Team Yankee, but it is a force we’ve not seen in action directly. In our timeline the Bundesheer’s goal was primarily to stall for time against invasion if their neutrality was ever violated, Team Yankee represents an opportunity to see how that force would be able to defend their neutrality and independence from foreign invasion. In the current timeline of the game it is an underdog story ripe for narrative exploration, just like the conflict further north in West Germany.

These are living documents that we will update as often as possible but please bear in mind that whilst we listen to feedback in the forums (and other places) we need to take a considered approach before implementing any changes.
