We talked with Mark from Breakthough Assault about his thoughts on what was revealed as part of the seminar today looking to the future of not just Late War Flames Of War but also Team Yankee!

There is a lot to look forward to as they explore the various factions for the game in more detail plus delve into something new for Team Yankee as it heads into the 90s AND becomes World War III.

We talked with the club behind this neat looking Team Yankee tabletop which has players getting stuck into a clash between Israelis and Syrians.

Exploring Kevin's Juno Beach Table

26 Comments

One of the awesome tabletops that we saw here this weekend was this brilliant Juno Beach tabletop from Kevin. This is a full on labour of love and is a wonderful and (as close as) accurate representation of what they would have been facing during the invasion attempt.

It features lots of great infantry, tanks and those massive landing craft too which are a joy to behold.

No worries – hope you enjoy some of the videos we’ve got coming up of the tables. They are pretty killer!

The Bastogne table just reminded me so much of the Band of Brothers episode, especially the dug in infantry.

Yeah, I was immediately thinking about that too!

I’d guess that anything in Team Yankee will eventually make its way into Tanks ?

Aargh! Another relatively local event that life has prevented me from attending, thank the God of gamers that OTT can bring it to us instead.

This comment/question is more directed towards Battlefront but any info would be appreciated.

First question is….Can we expect any events like this in the USA? I keep seeing all these great events in the UK and I am so jealous….lol

Second question….What suggestions do you have to help make FOW bigger in my area? There are a very loyal core group of us that play in my area and people will stop and watch us play entire games that don’t currently play FOW. Only problem is none of the local stores carry the product. I think if we had events like this in my area the interest would increase significantly.

Last comment….Thanks to OTT for posting this content. I really enjoy reading and watching.

Been so long since I built anything WW2. Have fond memories of some of those kits as a child…

The Bren Carrier was always a favourite, but I have a soft spot for Tank Transporters because my dad used to drive them after the war.. collecting discarded german tanks from the desert.

What wonderful venue! A really beautiful lodge building, I wish ours in he states had bars in them but, that is why we started the Shriners.

Great coverage can’t wait for some of the new goodies to get here.

Man the wargaming tables are so nice! But is the event limited to Gale Force 9’s product lines?
