UK 2017 Grand Tournament Report
Once again, following the success of 2016, Battlefront, The Reluctant Conscripts and Battlefield Hobbies were hosting the UK GT 2017. This year we had players representing Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Poland, New Zealand and Finland that nearly outnumbered UK entries. The transition from V3 to V4 had shaken up the UK scene and we got a lot of new names onto the roster that we hadn’t had before, always welcome for new faces to come onto the tourney scene.

Team Yankee Force Diagrams
Our latest two army books, Stripes and Red Thunder have greatly improved the range of options available to US and Soviet players to the point where the old lists included in the original printing were out of date. So we have replaced these with Force Diagrams for all five nations currently in Team Yankee, as well as a miniature catalogue of all the models currently in our range.

These new Force Diagrams will make it much easier for new players to work out which nation they would like to field, as well as helping them to plan out the first armies. Because all Team Yankee models come with the appropriate Unit Cards these you can even start building a new army without buying the appropriate Army Book if you desire.

Armies of Late War

German Panzer Kampfgruppe (GEAB15)

German Panzer Kampfgruppe
The Germans fielded a wide variety of armoured fighting vehicles and had new designs constantly under development. These varied between heavy well-protected monsters like the Tiger, through well-balanced medium tanks like the Panzer IV and Panther and self-propelled guns like the Jagdpanther to light and agile armoured cars such as the Puma.

British Armoured Battle Group
The British Army has been fighting and winning wars for hundreds of years. In that time they’ve taken the best that their foes can throw at them and the army has always come out on top. Equipped with the best tanks on offer the British look set to push back the Germans and end the war

US Combat Command (USAB09)

US Combat Command
US tank companies were designed for mobile warfare. Once the infantry had broken through the enemy defences, its fast and reliable tanks would rush through the gap. Once in the enemy rear they would create havoc as they raced for their objectives. They are well equipped for this role having their own self-propelled guns for artillery support.

US Combat Command (USAB09)...

Soviet Tank Shock Group
Soviet industry proved up to the task of providing the Red Army with excellent tanks and self-propelled guns that were effective and capable fighting machines, fast to produce, and easy for the crews to use.

Well supported by the 'Gods Of War' and their ZIS guns, Soviet Tank Shock Groups would break through any defences or die trying!

Changes to the Vietnam Range
We are in the process of reorganising our Vietnam product range as we prepare for the release of 'Nam next year. In one week we will be removing the entire Vietnam range from the online store to complete the process before the updated range returns to the online store in late January 2018.

To make it easier for you to purchase the last few items that you need to fill out (or even start) your armies over the next couple of weeks we have replaced a number of the box sets with blisters so you can buy single models.
