This week over on the Team Yankee website we have a full range of ANZAC Spotlights ready for players looking to build an Australian (or Kiwi) Force, ready to face off against the Soviets and their Warsaw Pact allies.

Leopard 1 Platoon (Plastic) (TNBX01)

Leopard 1 Platoon (Plastic) (TNBX01)
Though lightly armoured, the Leopard 1 tank is fast and well-armed, with a 105mm L7 gun that is more than capable of dealing with any scouting vehicles of Warsaw Pact. 

The West German made Leopard 1 was adopted and used by Australian, Canadian and Dutch forces making it one of the most widely used tanks of the era.

The NATO Leopard 1 Tank Platoon Box can be used to field Canadian, Dutch and Australian Forces.

Canadian 4 CMBG Painting Templates

Canadian 4 CMBG Painting Templates
Much like US MERDC camo schemes and NATO 3 colour schemes each Canadian vehicle (with the exception of the Leopard 1) is painted in a pre-planned template that specifies the placement of colours on a given piece of equipment/vehicle. To help our Canadian players achieve that look we've put PDFs of camo templates and provided a color scheme to help you paint your Canadian forces.

The Art Of Seeing While Not Being Seen
For quite a while now whenever Aaron has posted photos of his models on the Team Yankee Facebook pages, he has been asked about the camouflage nets and how he constructed them. Well, now is the time to find out as he takes use through a step by step of how to make camo nets using his ANZAC M113s and Scorpions to show us.

Fate Of A Nation

Fate Of A Nation

Fate Of A Nation Book Spotlight
The 1967 Six Day War and 1973 Yom Kippur or October War were epic in scale and brutal in intensity. The stakes were high for all sides. For Israel it was a matter of survival. If the Syrians or Egyptians broke through they could be in Israeli towns in less than an hour. For the Egyptians and Syrians it was a matter of credibility. Failure could bring down either government.

TANKS Spotlights

Soviet TANKS Previews
It is time for the Soviet juggernaut to once again be unleashed on the TANKS world. Like the British, the Soviets benefited from the Lend Lease program and received Stuart and Lee tanks from the US, as well as Valentine and Churchill tanks from the UK. Of course they had plenty of their own designs including the fearsome KV, the bane of many a Panzer commander as well as an earlier version of the T-34 that was being manufactured in Stalingrad whilst the fighting drew ever closer. Check out these sneak peeks before they release in August and September.

Fielding a Bishop Field Troop
The release of Armoured Fist has given players a wealth of options to field in their British Army, from the mighty Churchill lumbering across the battlefield to the trusty Priest sitting back and lobbing shells.

We've had a number of requests and suggestions from players about how to field the Bishop so we thought we would turn it into an Unofficial Unit Card.

Building Churchill's Wall Of Steel

Building Churchill's Wall Of Steel
During the Armoured Fist Live Launch Chris wrote a short article about the Churchill Armoured Squadron he was very tempted to build. Despite having way too many half-started, half-finished and almost complete armies Chris has finally caved in to the pressure and started thinking about how to build them while also giving a touch of individuality.
