For King and Country!

Well, got finally settled on a paint scheme for my Brits.. in the end I stuck with the classic desert look, but made it nice and dark so it fits into Sicily/Italy.

Infantry Color Scheme:
Khemri over everything but gun and skin
Tallarn over skin
Calthan over gun
Devlan Mud wash over whole model
Kommando Khaki for socks, helmet, webbing, backpack
Reaper Chestnut Brown for rifle
Boltgun and chainmail for metal parts

Vehicle Color scheme:
Khemri over everything
Desert Yellow for main, Adeptus for camo
Bleached Bone heavy drybrush over Desert yellow, lighter dusting over grey
Devlan Mud over whole model
Boltgun for exhausts, machine guns, etc

I think they are looking good, I am doing the 51st Highland Division, also dubbed the "Highway Decorators" for painting their HD symbol everyhere they went. This is red over blue square, and is on the left shoulder as a blue dot, and is on the fender of the Lorry. The tanks attached to the 51st were the 2nd Derbyshire Yeomanry, and so they have the Desert Rats symbol from the 7th armored brigade on their fenders.

Gotta paint up the rest of the 2IC stand tonite, as well as the unit of MG Carriers that took me to victory vs Lothlann's Sov's last week!


  1. Lookin' good, Den!

    While it was on sale at MiniWarGaming, I cashed in my points for a free Open Fire! starter set, so I might just give this little game a shot.

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:
