Pre Heresy Night Lords Battle Report, Dec 31, 2009

Hey gang, here's a quick battle report of my Pre Hersy Night lords vs Hamilton Ian's Guard army, at Black Knight games in Hammertown. Speahead deployment, Annihilation. After winning the die roll, for whatever reason, I decided that since my guys are 'baddies' I'd give him the tablequarter with a giant green pool, figuring he would deploy his tanks tightly packed in the one area left to him, and I could fire away at them with my 2 freshly painted Devastator squads in the giant church. He opted instead to simply reserve everything. Here is my deployment:



Since I had first turn, and he had everything in reserves, in by my end of turn 2, I had advanced way up, and awaited his arrival:
He fires his basilisks into the church area, hoping to kill many, but he got very unlucky with scatters, and his Russ was the only thing that caused any wounds.


I charged his Basilisks with a tactical squad, only took the battle cannon off the russ, despite 90% of my army shooting into it, and then he moved his infantry in.. but by now I was way too close. He had one turn of shooting, and was facing:


An insane amount of tank shocking with my rhinos mopped most what was left, so Ian conceded:
Also, my librarian is busy checking out the new Dark Eldar Codex... he it MIGHT be out by the year 30k!

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:
