3rd FoW AAR: Soviet on Soviet!

(Above) T70 light tanks head towards the inn near the potato farm... they make Vodka from potatos right?!


(Above) Always an epic battle, is Soviets on Soviets. Mission was breakthrough with Brett on the offensive. His objective quarter is top right in this pic, near the two burnt out cottages.


(above) Chris' plucky painted unit here would go on to heroic deeds for Mother Russia, killing tanks and drawing a good amount of fire away from the objective defenders.. all near/in the potato farm area!


(above) View downrange of Chris' guns.


(above) Reverse view, you can see Chris' guns near the brick ruins, Potato Inn in the foreground.


Here is where Chris' unit defeated and forced back a unit of T34s!


(above) all game long, the lone observer on the crest of the bridge called in artillery, and survived the fire from these T70s!

Brett's tanks eat a perfect ranged-in shot, again thanks to that well hidden observer team.



In the end, Chris had a tonne of stuff arrayed in a horseshoe of doom, awaiting Brett's reserves arriving on the objectives. In the end, I am told Brett squeaked out a victory despite massive casualties. Video is below.

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:
