The Cold War just got HOT! It’s Battlefront’s new game Team Yankee!
On Saturday December 12 and Sunday December 13 the Battlefront design studio in New Zealand will be having a weekend-long event to celebrate the launch of Team Yankee.
They will be turning the Team Yankee website into a live blog, featuring photos, model assembly videos, gaming, rules discussions with Phil Yates, and an interview with novel author HW Coyle.
Plus they will be giving away prizes, including models that will not be released until next year.
It’s 1985 and the Cold War just got hot!
Team Yankee, a heavy combat team of M1 Abrams tanks and M113 armoured personnel carriers, faces a Soviet invasion of West Germany. Outnumbered and outgunned, Captain Sean Bannon and his men will have to fight hard and they’ll have to fight smart if they are going to survive.
Lt. Colonel Yuri Potecknov’s motor rifle battalion is preparing to execute its mission in the scientific manner that he had been taught at the Frunze Military Academy and used in Afghanistan. Victory today will bring the world proletarian revolution that much closer.
Based on the book written by Harold Coyle in 1987, Team Yankee brings the conflict that simmered throughout the Cold War to life in a game by Battlefront Miniatures where you command your troops in miniature on a realistic battlefield.
Team Yankee is Battlefront’s new modern era game full of awesome minis from Soviet and American infantry, armor, to helicopters and even close support aircraft such as the A-10 and SU-25. Check it out!
It’s World War III…but in 1985!
