FoW Antenna Tutorial

"Can you hear me now, over?"



Here is a close up shot of the Sherman III's with their new antennas. The key is what to use for the antenna.. I didt want to use brass rod, as any pressure would likely snapo it, or worse, snap and damage the resin model. Plastic thin rod isnt flexible enough. However, clothing tag ties from a dept store work perfectly, they have some bend to them, are thin enough, and are plentiful (ask for a handful)

Video below as well..

  1. Nice idea using the tag ties. Antennas really make 15mm tanks kind of pop, I think it is kind of like basing, a great base makes a mediocre mini look great. an antenna is so rarely seen on these models that it really helps them stand out from the crowd.

  2. Awesome idea! I tried the brass rod - it snaps too easily with packing. I will have to snag some of those ties off you!

  3. Ties work. So do bristles from a cheap black broom - like you would have in a garage.

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:
