Does this list make me a douchebag? :)

(put this on while you read)

So.. obviously I'm not made to run a pure infantry list, so I might try something out: Maximum Artillery.

I'm looking at running Motor Rifle British, so that I can run a full 8 gun battery of 25 pdrs, and a full 8 Priests. I could then run Hurricanes as my final template unit, and then the 2 Motor Squads and command. It will probably suck, in that there is no way I can hide them all, and I have literally nothing else but artillery :)

Anyhoo, this is what I am thinking of doing, and so I will paint these 2 units up after I figure out how to set up all the gunners between my Arty and my 4 17pdrs... the 17pdrs came with no crew from Maelstrom.


  1. I assume this is a mid war list?

    MW Motor inf rules! If you get to defend vs Panzers, this list will probably own. If you have to play a free for all it might be ugly- your priests will have to pretend to be tanks :)

    Still, it'd be a hell of a good time!

  2. Not at all. This list doesn't make you a douchebag. The fact you're a douchebag is what makes you a douchebag. :)

  3. Sounds like fun. You can order artillery crew with no guns if you want to have enough proper models and the fact you are listening to Both Thrower - Salvo makes you a douchebag. Nothing else. :P

  4. Well, now that I have the 2 boxsets of 25 pdrs, I had enough crew to go around for the 17s and 25s. I also had extra staff team guys, who are thrown in as the battery command, with their riding crops.. suitably British and snooty looking if you ask me.

    So models is no longer the problem.. working 62 hours a week is the problem to assemble them :)

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:
