For Pete's Sakes

This is for Peter white, how my meltas-from-cities of death pieces turned out:



In this case, the baseline gun is a grenade launcher as you can see, though you could use pretty much anything.. the key is the exhaust thingy from Cities of Death, once that is on there, it could be either a flamer or melta, but then you add the little cylinder and the under wire, and its a melta. Greenstuff wire here, and I used some plastic tubing for teh cylinder, though if in a pinch, you could just make a greenstuff cyliner, let it harden, then slice off the ends so you get clean side cuts and you're golden.

Hope this helps

PS, note how I have to highlight all the green on every guy still for Game Summit.. le sigh.

  4. In all seriousness, If the huge ammo cannister for the grnade launcher was removed Dennis it would look more realistic, IMO of course.

    Looks like a big shoota as is.

  7. But what about the comments that it looks a lot more like a Big Shoota than a meltagun?

  8. well, if I had more of the old dwarf plastic bodies AND more cadian arms, id be willing to do the conversion with real melta guns, but since I dont have any spare guys, i needed to use what i had, which was a surplus of grenade launcher guys.

    if I get a hold of more, i'll phase these out and use real meltas

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:
