As usual it is the race against time to get everything ready before game day. I suspect the core formation of Chieftains may look surprisingly like Brits, but the supporting units are nearing completion. Of course, some infantry to hold an objective is a key for me so I opted to add the integral platoon. I went with a BMP equipped unit to add a little extra AT firepower.
No good combined arms team would be complete without some indirect firepower.
Some artistic license with the smoke effect but it looks good.
And having been harassed by USMC Cobras a couple of times in the recent past, some air defence will hopefully come in handy.
I should ad that whoever decided to make the Iranian roundel a two piece decal has a unique sense of humour!
The beauty of team Yankee, soon to be rebranded Third World War as I understand it, is that it never really happened. This allows some creativity when it comes to creating allied formations. In this particular list, the Iranians have chosen to ally with the Soviets. So, my allied formation will be a T-62M Company out of Afghanistan.
I am looking forward to getting these guys on the tournament table. There are still plenty of slots open for players. If you are interested, you can sign up at http://kingstonnexus.ca/events/
