Kingston Schwerpunkt 2019


Recently, Kampfgruppe Kingston hosted our second tournament of the year; Kingston Schwerpunkt 2019.  This was a one day, 70 point, Team Yankee tournament accepting army lists from all official Team Yankee books including Czechoslovak Peoples Armies, Polish Peoples Armies, and Oil Wars. The More Missions pack and victory conditions, as well as Battle Plans, were used for three rounds of play.

Lions Awake

Before Battlefront had come out with the Oil Wars, I was working on coming up with a Iranian Army for Team Yankee.  I was a little disappointed that some possible Iranian formations did not materialized, specifically an Iranian cavalry type formation. Nevertheless, I am pretty happy about the fact that I can finally, ‘officially’, get these guys on the table. Their first outing will be at the Schwerpunkpt 2019 tournament in Kingston on 28 July.

Motivational Reading for Team Yankee's Oil Wars


“The Iranian company commander had ordered his tanks not to fire until instructed to do so. The forty-odd M-60A1 and Centurion tanks that made up the composite battalion was the last major force that stood between godless Communists and the holy city of Qom…Once the Iranian tanks of the battalion were gone, there would be no more. Winning or losing, however, did not matter to the company commander… His only regret was that they were fighting the Lesser Satan. How much better it would have been were it Americans who were about to die….” Sword Point by Harold Coyle.

Kingston Spring Offensive 2019


On 31 March, Kampfgruppe Kingston hosted what we hope will become our annual Spring Offensive Tournament at Kingston Game Nexus. We started out looking to host 14 players, but in the end, expanded to 16 in order to get everyone who wanted to play into the tournament. We were fortunate enough to draw players from Ottawa, Laval and St Hubert with an even split of eight local players and eight from out of town.

Dollar Store Terrain - It Doesn't have to Suck!

Good day everyone, I know it's been a long time since I've put anything up on the Dice Devils blog, but I have been chugging away at my own hobby projects none the less!

Over the past year or so I decided I needed terrain to play games of 40k or whatever at my place. I also decided to paint an ork army...that was a lesson in patience!

So with terrain on my mind, I aimed to do it as cheaply as possible, but I didn't want it to look like cheap terrain. I headed to Dollarama and Dollar Tree to see what I could scrounge and then dress up with a few random bitz from my altogether too large bitz box, haha.

I started really simple, just using some cork sheets and a few bits and tried to make some pretty simple scatter terrain.


Nothing crazy, but with some paint (again from Dollarama) I gave them a bit of life...and then they started multiplying!

Where have we been?

It's been a crazy fall, and the group has diversified interests.... I'm now playing mainly Star Wars Legion and Infinity. I am in love with Infinity especially - the smaller scale games, depth of player interaction regardless of whos turn it is, the setting, the models, the background and "fluff", and the rules!

I plan to start recording my games (both systems) and starting to post more content. I will also do army reviews of what I have and whats painted as I progress.

Here is my first offering of a game Chris (Lothlann) and I played recently - Enjoy!


My next game, against Brett (Pripyat) and his Haqqislam Hassassin sectoral:

The Canadians are Coming

It's been very quiet on this blog this summer, but things are happening behind the scenes. I'm not a big fan of "look what I bought posts" but I'm showing my new Canadian Team Yankee purchases just to tell everyone that I'll doing up more Canadian painting and model articles for this site and for No Dice No Glory.


For those who have not been following my work, here are the links to my previous Canadian articles.
