The German Response.....

With the push recently into an air power arms race, I feel compelled to throw my hat into the ring! And so I present my new flight of Junker Ju87 Stukas - with bombs.


Read on for more details on the kits and some glory pics!




These models are from "CAN.DO Pocket Army" by Dragon Models. They are 1/144 scale models that I purchased online for $5 a piece! I know, I know, they are not Battlefront, but for the price can you blame me? Oh, and did I mention they came painted and decaled as you see here!??!

Dragon Models stopped producing them in 2005, so ebay and some online retailers "may" have some stock left. I highly recommend grabbing any you can come across.

Check these beauties out:



They originally put out 6 different Stuka models. These are the "2./St.G 2, "Immelmann", DNO, Czechoslovakia March 1942 editions. Perfect for my Mid War Eastern Front force.

Props to Drew for putting me onto these beauties!

CA$H Out.

  2. I'd spend a little time on them seeing as they come fully painted.

    Snip the landing gear off, as they will never be on the ground :) and possibly file off the copyright symbol and text on the back there.


    For $5 those things are a steal!

  3. No need to remove the landing gear -- they are non-retractable.

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:
