The lads at Breakthrough assault have done it again with yet another Battlefront Team Yankee preview, answering a lot of the questions about this new project:
I’m thrilled that they’ve come up with new, faster rules, it means I’ll be able to cram even more toys onto the table! Its probably also reasonable to expect those that have pooh-poohed this project just because its ‘flames of war’ to maybe think twice as its not now the same rules, but then again probably not!
Personally, can’t wait!14/09/2015 at 09:27 #31040Nick TurnerParticipant
Interesting, could you expand on how the speed Tanks fight at is slower?14/09/2015 at 17:23 #31054kyoteblueParticipant
I don’t know……but I tinker with rules any way …14/09/2015 at 21:43 #31064
“Interesting, could you expand on how the speed Tanks fight at is slower?”
Well obviously I haven’t seen the rules yet – but then again that hasn’t stopped most FOW detractors from sounding off, so here goes:
I think with increased engagement ranges and lethality in modern warfare, they intend putting more emphasis on target acquisition and firing solutions. So perhaps split out the current firing phase, which in the WW2 rules includes observation, ranging, fire orders, firing and effect, into 2 or more phases, possibly acquisition, then firing and penetration. This would allow some sort of reaction to LRATGW launches, too…
But pure speculation on my part!14/09/2015 at 22:28 #31068kyoteblueParticipant
Oh I’ll most likely buy the rules and some of the models….how tournament oriented the rules are will decide if I use them or 5CCC instead.15/09/2015 at 08:23 #31076
Yes I’m no tournaments fan myself – if you want a fair evenly balanced games to pit your wits and nothing else against an opponent, then I can’t see how chess can be improved upon – but if it brings more people into the Cold War period, well and good. You don’t have to stick to the points system if you’re having a ‘historical’ game with a like minded opponent…and I rarely do when playing Flames of War. I just like the simplicity of the rules and the authenticity of the overall outcome, without having to invest too much bandwidth into administering the rules. It sounds as if Team Yankee will be even simpler…
