Tale of 4 Gamers

So here is the deal: We haven't really been using this blog so much, apart from the awesome terrain segment by Orbital.

With no Grand Tournaments to look forward to, my painting has ground to a freaking halt

Time to change that up a bit.

Tomorrow, Friday Night Fights presents a 3 game round robin, featuring Lothlann, Ca$h, Orbital and yours struly, Matt Varnish.

The plan is to actually PAINT and chronicle the progress using the blog. We can meet up in a few months, get the round robin in again, etc.

We just need to settle in on a tournament we can set our sights on.

For me, I want to work on my Crone World Eldar, but since I'm using Tyranid bits for the tentacles and such, I kinda need to finish at least, assembling my Nids so I know what parts I can use. Therefore, I need to finish the 2nd Tyrannofex, and keep a few parts handy to reconvert the 2 tervigons back into carnifexes, since I reckon that were going to see a Tervigon/Tyrannofex kit sometime in the near future.

So tomorrow, I will be bringing the Nids, and working on them, then switching gears to my Eldar.

If Marty is still kicking it, he can feel free to join in the fun, once he unpacks :)

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:
