Last Week's AAR

"Where is the RAF?????"

AAR after the break.




Hey guys, Finally posting last week's AAR, 1500 points Escalation League, my Brits vs Duane's Germans, with me in the middle for Cauldron. I went old school and did an Africa list so I could take 2 units of tanks, full Arty, and still be "Infantry" list. Didn't have points to squeeze in the Hurricanes I normally field, and it turns out both Chris and Duane brought AA! Duane's Stuka's did a number on my artillery that's for sure.
Here we have Duane's panzer's assaulting my tiny motor platoon that was guarding my 8 25pdrs, who were sitting on the middle 2 objectives. I failed my counterattack roll, and the Bulldog roll, and got wiped..

However, very next turn, his 10.5's who had to deploy near my board edge due to Cauldron's deployment rules, get assaulted by my Crusaders after they crucially get those AT10 shots to the CO Panzer and kill him!


Duane's 2 AA halftracks, (really cool models IMHO) still in reserve.. would they come on and extend the game for Duane?

  1. Lots of lessons learned here for me:

    1. I haven't bought the horses for the 10.5cm arti so they are hampered by a lack of mobility, so I put the arti on the board to get the dug-in bonus but they ended up being placed in the worst quadrant.

    2. Ultimately I think I should have put down the two armoured platoons - then used their mobility to meet up / reinforced reserves.

    3. Need to make better use of stormtrooper moves -- to cut down incoming fire..

  2. 4. I should have used smoke > regular shells a few times.

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:
