Telford's premier wargaming club, STAGS, returned to the Shropshire Scale Model show at the RAF Museum Cosford on 2 April 2017. This is the third year running STAGS have displayed at the show. In the magnificent setting of the Cold War building, surrounded by aircraft and vehicles, a massive display game of Team Yankee was the obvious choice.

Across three 6’ x 4’ tables, six club members fielded forces from the whole Team Yankee range. The scenario was three 100 point Warsaw Pact forces launching attacks on three 50 point NATO units. Reinforcements weren't guaranteed so it was a nerve-wracking time for the hard-pressed NATO commanders. This was the very opening battles of our planned campaign called Red Star Rising that will be run in Telford and available for download.

The tables were split into three sectors representing areas controlled by British Army of the Rhine, Detached Elements of American 3rd Corps, 1st Corps West German Bundeswehr. Facing them were elements from the Warsaw Pact 2nd Guards Tank Army and 3rd Shock Army.

The result on the day was that the British and American sectors were overrun and the West German sector held its ground as it fought the Soviet divisions to a standstill.

Our display generated loads of interest from people of all ages. The models, game system and the scenery attracted interest from modellers and wargamers alike. We were pleased to be able to speak to people from near and far about the game and about what we do at STAGS.

A very enjoyable and successful day and hopefully some new recruits.
