I've been making my way into this Team Yankee craze...I've gotten a few games under my belt...I've got some ideas for what I want to collect...I've even picked up some Cold War gems to read for extra inspiration and possible scenario writing...and
I've finally finished the starter box!! Very happy to get this done. The biggest difference with the new plastics for me is the extra time I need to assemble everything. With the standard resin models there was always some degree of prep time...however, with all the great detail these models have, there must be some trade-off...and so, many layers of skin were given towards the assemblage of these models.
To be quite fair...bitching aside, between the X-Files and Lucifer the other night, I did manage to assemble a box of BMPs with little injury to my digits.
Anywho, I did struggle somewhat with the colour scheme for my T72's...after reading First Clash, I elected to go with a dark green scheme for my Sov Guards...the Hinds were primarily Russian Uniform with Desert Yellow ala some pics I'd seen of Mi-24's painted around early 1980's.
I am happy with the results...I like the variance...please enjoy...any advice is always welcome.
The starter box...9 x T72...er, actually 10...thank you product delay! I will gladly exchange 2 weeks of patience for a free T72! Tanks plus 2 x Mi-24 Hind
The boss...Formation Commander for Guards Tank Battalion
So far, 10 T72's of doom...I plan to add a few more to the fray in the future, but so far have them organized to 1 x Formation commander, 1st company: 5 x T72; 2nd company: 4 x T72
and a Gunship Assault Company with 2 x Mi-24 Hinds...at the moment I envision adding 2 more...maybe 4 along with some soldat's for an Air Landing Company
