Squat Update

OK, so I havent posted on my progress, only because it is Epic.. instead of just finishing ONE chimera for last week, I finished a chimera, got paint on 4 more, finished the colossus, and ALL the infantry for the 1500 point list.

Therefore I'm going to gear it down some and simply finish two chimeras for this following week: the company command and platoon command ones, so I can differentiate between them and the vet ones.

I need to do that because: I played An00bis tonite, and yeah, it was DEFINTELY the dice.. this time, even though i was at the store, and forgot I had dumped my batch of dice into the Bayshore dice bucket, I REFUSED to use them, and instead used Jason's dice to smash him.

His own dice failed him, lost two critical leadership tests, two units of the board, and the veterans with only 2 meltas but one flamer paid off huge dividends, flaming into a unit of kroot to make them run off the board. Sure, when I am gunning down tanks, I would like the 3rd melta, but seriously, I like having that flamer back up for the later stages in a game when there are actual troops on the table. On the other side of the board, a platoon command with flamer also paid off handsomely, hitting a unit of "gone to ground" firewarriors, pushing them off that objective too.. Jason ended up conceding at turn 5, I had 3 objectives, and he had one contested.

But yeah, now that all 5 chimeras are green, I need to put unit markings on them so that they can be picked out.

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:
