New Tyranids (Summary) vs Traitor Guard

Here is a quick rep of a battle at bayshore Jan 4th vs Lothlann's Guard. Dawn of War, Capture and Control. I used the list from previous posts, adding in 30 points of spore mines, leaving off Venom Cannon on the Tyrant.

Initial deployment, I had Tyrant, Tervigon and large unit of Termagants, he had a command squad on the hill to push me back.. I went to a flank instead:




His turn one, I was facing this: 2x Medusa squadron, Squadron of 1x Medusa, 1x Griffon, Chimera, Manticore, 2 Hellhounds AND 2 Vendettas. Thank god first turn was night fight.. though he used on vendetta to searchlight my Tervigon and did 3 wounds to it, 2 wounds to the tyrant. Note to self: vs pie plates, spread them out a bit, otherwise he gets wounds on both with each hit or lucky scatter!




Turn 2/3 the Hive Guard (Warriors in foreground) walk on and destroy a Vendetta, and a lucky unit of Genestealers fleets, then charges the griff-medusa squadron AND the chimera in a nice multicharge, blowing all 3 up! I move spawned termagants forward to try and take the Defence Laser objective. Medusas kill off the Tervigon, which I had moved back so it didnt kill my termies..




Turns 4-5: Veteran squad takes the Flak gun objective, and I deepstrike my Zoanthropes to contest, since my other Genestealers looked to be out of reach. Close up of Lothlann's excellent medusa conversions.. and at the end of turn 5, a Tyrant and 7 genestealers FAIL to blow up a gun-less hellhound contesting the Defence Laser.. weak. Draw game.

Friday Night Fights & Project Ultra for WWPD

This week on the virtual battlefield, it was an all Infantry affair as I continued to test Rob's Canadians for the upcoming 2013 Historicon tournament. We rolled up 'No Retreat' as the mission. Seeing as we both field foot footsoldier lists, we had to roll over who would attack. I came up with the higher number after Rob rolled a big fat 1. After choosing which end he would defend, we began deployment and objective placements. Enjoy the video of the game and I happened to take some pics as well covering most of the action.

Looking at the board layout, Rob chose the best side from which to defend. No matter which way I wanted to approach from, there were going to be a lot of slow moving anti-tank guns and bog checks moving 4" at a time in order to get range on those dug in Canadians. I have to say after being bombarded nearly every turn, rocket batteries are the way to go for maximum effect on target.

I had a hard time breaking through all the terrain to get my guns go…

A forum?!

Who ever said imitation is the highest for of flattery? I guess I just did. So, I thought it was time we started our own forum, accessible by the public, to talk all things TableTop Tactician. Lists reviews, events/news, anything people want to chat about - so have at it!

So hope on over the to the Forum table and introduce yourself and get posting!

VERSION 4 Flames Test Game 1 DAK vs Desert Rats

"What do you say, old boy, shall we go kick the Jerries out of Africa?" Monty

Using the WWPD rules compilation, and stats and such from the preview copy of the rulebook that stores have, plus some from the latest WGI, we apply our Team Yankee prowess to run a Test game of Version 4.  TO make equivalent lists, I used V3 points for both (1340pts) and the DAK force comes out at 82 pts using V4 points.  Video with our opinions at bottom of article.   Lets see the lists:
