Tier 3 AAR's 'n Pics

"Look, THESE 17pdrs aren't immobile!!"



Last night we ran the first round of Tier 3 in our escalation. I was able to make it out, and this time took the 16 gun artillery army, with 8 25pdrs, and 8 Priests, Hurricanes, and 2 units of Motor Rifles, minus trucks. Brett had his Fallschirmpioneeren, and Tristan v Moser had 8 Katyushkas amongst other things squaring off vs Tristan's Grenadier list (with 1000pts of tanks, you go girl!)





After my 16 guns fire and cannot range in, this is what 2 x 10.5cm german artillery does to my Priest Parking lot :(



Beautiful models, in Brettislava, Brett's latest city ruins he painted up.




Vids.. the first one, I am pretty bitter at the end of the match(sorry) because I was on the cusp yet again of victory, and came up short thanks to the fickle dice gods.. Video 2, the end of video 2 was cut off, so actually, watch game 2 first, then game 1, since the end of game 1 we find out the results of game 2... again, sorry

  1. THANK the gods his Katushkas couldnt see most of my force that game! Was a close game until my Pz IIIN came in and wiped out his SU-122s, then my tanks had free reign of the board. I am planning on switching my list up some, so stay tuned!

  2. I am also switching my list up. I spent a good 6 hours assembling stuff yesterday. Lets just say the 51st HD just got reinforcements, in the shape of the 7th Arm'd Div!! Also, did the bear's work of spackling ALL my infantry bases, mortar platoon, and all my guns.... Ran out of WWPD to listen to!

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:
