Wayne's Red Thunder Update
The release of Red Thunder has got me thinking about what else I might like to add to my Soviet force. I already have well over 100 points painted or in the painting queue, any expansion might be looking at a second battalion, but what?

Storm Anti-tank Platoon
The Storm mounts the powerful long-range AT-6 Spiral anti-tank missile on the MT-LB armoured gun tractor. This combination makes for a low profile anti-tank vehicle that is hard to detect in well-concealed ambush positions. The Storm supplements the AT-5 Spandrel antitank vehicles used by anti-tank units. However, as a superior anti-tank weapon, Storm equipped units are intended to stop enemy armoured breakthroughs.

Apartment Building

Apartment Block
Not every home is a mansion on a country estate. Sometimes home is a multi-storied building with a bunch of popular 20-somethings living upstairs making a lot of noise.

The Apartment Block box comes with a pre-painted building and a set of unpainted Air-conditioning units ready for you to further enhance your buildings, or give your Flames Of War buildings a touch of the 1980s.

Soviets in World War III
When Team Yankee kicked off we gave you two sets of intelligence briefings in the rulebook to get everybody started, based on the forces featured in H W Coyle’s novel Team Yankee. Since then we have released Leopard (West German forces), Iron Maiden (British forces) and Volksarmee (East German Forces). Red Thunder is our first book to revisit the forces initially featured in Team Yankee. Red Thunder expands and enhances the forces available in Team Yankee for the Soviet Army.

Team Yankee at Historicon 2017
The Team Yankee Tournament was the largest event at Historicon this year and the guys from WWPD did a great job with the event. There were plenty of fantastic looking armies on display and a great spirit of competition. Congratulations to everyone that went along.

Breakthrough Assault

Road To The UK Team Yankee GT
The UK Grand Tournament is only a few weeks away and the release of Red Thunder has Mark thinking about which Soviet list he should be taking. With 80 points to build an army he has three different lists and debates which one will be the best on the day.

Casey's Completed Hind Helicopters

Those of you have been following the launch weekend will have seen the slow progress that I’ve been making on my Hinds. I keep getting distracted by other projects.

Visiting the New Zealand National Army Museum
Whilst returning from Panzerschreck 2017 the Studio team stopped off at the New Zealand National Army Museum in Waiouru. We took a short walkaround video of the vehicles on display whilst doing our best to not slip over with the recent dump of snow!

Ilya's Volksarmee
Ilya is one of our Playtesters and is active in the Moscow gaming scene. Here he shares a few thoughts on why he decided to build an East German force for Team Yankee.

Phase One: The Requisition

When Team Yankee initially came out I knew I wanted to build my own Team Yankee rather than a Soviet force. Over the past year we have released British, West Germans and East Germans and my painting backlog has grown as I've started two new armies. Now with the release of Red Thunder I've completely failed my Last Stand check and decided to go headlong into another new army with a T-64 Battalion...

Red Thunder Live Launch Battle Report
We had a very busy day in the office with our Live Launch, but we still managed to play a Total War Game. Wayne and Phil lined up against Chris and Andrew to see whether the best of NATO could hold off anything the Soviets (and East Germans) could throw at them.

Team Yankee in French

Nous Sommes En 1985 Et La Guerre Froide Vient De S’embraser!
La Team Yankee, une équipe de combat lourde composée de chars M1 Abrams et de véhicules blindés de transport de troupes M113 fait face à une invasion soviétique de l’Allemagne de l’Ouest. En infériorité numérique et surclassés en puissance de feu, les hommes du capitaine Sean Bannon devront combattre fermement et faire preuve d’intelligence tactique pour survivre.
Le Lt. Col. Yuri Potecknov se prépare à exécuter sa nouvelle mission de manière scientifique, conformément aux enseignements de l’académie militaire de Frunze, utilisés en Afghanistan. Une victoire aujourd’hui sera un pas de plus vers la révolution prolétaire mondiale.
Avec Team Yankee, le conflit qui couvait pendant la guerre froide explose et s’incarne dans des fi gurines que vous commandez sur un champ de bataille ultra-réaliste.
