|Combat Team Yankee advance!|
Look, if you play Team Yankee in 15mm, then good for you. I personally don't like the look, the table is far too 'cramped' for my liking. (Watch You Tube Team Yankee Battle Reports & you will see what I am on about). With the Epic 40K - 6mm cross link, then here we go. Of course, I'm listening to Red Storm Rising & Team Yankee Audiobooks to add inspiration. I've got a copy of the Team Yankee rules, in hard back, very nice.
Right, back to our stuff. The figure pictures are 6mm (1/300), though I'm seeing 1/285 scale banded about a lot. The last time I bought 6mm stuff, were Heroics & Ros Napoleonics back in the 80's/90's. I was surprised to see that Heroics & Ros are still going, though their website is down at the moment. I think they are re-locating the business. These figures look like H&R. Obviously I've been looking at extra troops, the US Infantry are still needed. GHQ minis look Fantastic for 6mm, however I couldn't believe how much they cost. It will be Heroics & Ros for me... Now I need to build a Soviet Amy!
