Golden Marine XV Videos

Golden Marine, it used to be Ottawa's 2nd tournament, with Cangames being the only other one. It started off with humble beginnings, 8 guys in a townhouse playing for beers, and has grown, 14 iterations later, to 40 people in a hotel meeting room.

A few traditions: It has, and always will be, 1107 points, the founder made his list of stuff that was painted and mandated that points limit! And it has stuck. Secondly, this was always supposed to be a "Gentlemen's Event" so these days, generalship doesn't even factor in at all. In this day and age of "competitive events" its refreshing to see 40 people have a blast, and be able to bring wacky things. For this year, it is a team tournament, but with random pairings each game.

1st Video is of armies as people were unpacking, the next 4 were my games. The game ones were short, we were very pressed for time.

  2. yeah my hatred for SWs is more of a joke than anything else.

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:
