Flames of War Battle Reports

Tristan worked his tail off to paint these PanzerGrenadiers this week

Alright, so FoW is picking up steam, and we have Pripyat (Brett) over and Marty to add to the usual crew tonite. I don't have my models yet from Drew so I played with a unit or two. FYI we are all total Noobs to this, which is part of the appeal. I've been playing WFB /40k for more than 10 years and it s refreshing to be see a new system with wide eyes again.

First game was Russians (Brett and Chris) vs Germans (Tristan and Marty/Me when Marty had to leave) 1500 points.

Here is Video plus some pics below:

And right after, we played a Russia vs Russia game, this time with the armor on both sides in Reserves, to force us to see those rules. In the End we get to see how an assault works, though due to my Camera's wonky showing of full battery bars in the morning then half when I get to Tristan's, I run out of Battery and we miss turn 2. Though it was just advance towards the objectives, get shot at :)

Here is second Video (Very Short)and a few more piccies of Brett's terrain:

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:
