Odd Man Out Gamer

Hmmm, you get sick for two days, miss one tournament and you're shunned from the group!

Well hopefully I can get in on the Tale of Four/Five Gamers and maybe make up a game or two from the round robin next week :)

Seeing as this looks to be a 40k thing I'll have to pull double time I guess, because I am working on my Empire now, but my Blood Guard/Angels could be picked up for this endeavour, as there wouldn't be too many to paint!

So fellow drunken, and Sober Gamers, what say you, shall we make this the tale of Five Gamers?


  1. nah its ok, were doing mostly painting tonite as it turns out, Corey is redoing his entire army, and we could all use some painting.

    We'll do the mini tourny some other time, and that will be a time when youre there :)

  2. "Hmmm, you get sick for two days, miss one tournament and you're shunned from the group!"

    That is just not true. I've been shunning you for much longer than that! :)

  3. Seriously, though... I don't really know what Tale of 5 Gamers means? Is it just a journal of games or what?

  4. Sorry Corey, way back in the before time, in the long long ago there was an article in White Dwarf that ran for several issues that followed 4 Gamers and their progress on collecting, converting, painting and playing with a new army (or addition to pre-existing ones, but essentially a new armies 'worth' of models).

    What this is, is our own version, basically so we can compare our progress to each other to motivate us all to keep moving forward and not get bogged down.

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:
