During the Cold War the tank was the measure of the strength of armies. While helicopters and guided missiles threatened to displace the tank technical issues and limited supplies meant the tank remained the primary weapon in attack or defence. The highest priority for NATO ground forces was stopping the much larger number of tanks deployed by the Warsaw Pact before they break through and win World War 3!
Team Yankee is a popular and fun set of miniatures rules. Players control a force of Cold War troops in battle using 15mm scale miniatures.
The rules used will be Team Yankee including FAQ at www.team-yankee.com
Play will consist of 4 rounds of up to 2 hours.
Players will use fully painted 15mm scale Team Yankee armies of up to 70 points.
The emphasis in this tournament is fast play with tanks so a couple of special rules have been added:
- Only formations with HQ vehicles having armour 4 or higher may count for force morale. All other formations are treated as support.
- Transport and Infantry teams must pass a 4+ test to fire guided missiles unless they did not move or fire in their previous turn.
Terrain will be pre-set and defined. Missions played will be determined by the More Missions download from www.team-yankee.com
The draw will be by Swiss chess by accumulated Victory Point score with the best attempt made to match historical opponents. If necessary an extra player will play byes to make the numbers even.
Trophies will be awarded to the top three placed players by VP. Countback for places shall be by the results of their games if they have played each other, otherwise by sum of opponent’s scores.
A Trophy will be awarded to the Best Army as voted by the players.
Highest VP for the whole tournament will be the Victorian Team Yankee Champion for 2019.
