Things be a changing........


Where to start? The Drunken Gamers site is growing, and Friday Night Fights continues to be expand and bring in more players. With this, there has been talk of forming a "proper" club here in Ottawa, that will cover all the tabletop interests we share. With the club talk, inevitably talk of a "clean" name for our little club has been brought up. After much discussion, we have fallen upon the name "TableTop Tacticians" or "TTT". This name was chosen to reflect our love of miniature gaming, in the many forms we enjoy(FoW, 40k, Warmachine, Dystopian Wars, etc). You can expect the same great content to continue (and grow!).

With all this being said, we will be moving the Drunken Gamers blog over to a new site:

I will be moving all of our content there, and we will be registering on and with BattleFront.

This is not so much the start of something awesome, but an evolution. We plan on sponsoring events here in the city, and with our escalation league gaining interest, bringing more people into our hobby. If any of our readers have any sage advice (pitfalls, issues you overcame) please drop the club a line at

I encourage our readers to follow us at the new site (once its all moved). Stay tuned for more info!

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:
