1 week remains: What list should I take???



While you guys enjoy these pics of Big Willis of http://covering-fire.blogspot.com/ fame and our very own Ca$h playing last friday, I need to come up with a list: There are, as I see it three routes.

1, the "Game" list. We are using Nationals rules for everything except wooded area which will always count as woods not forests (so bog vs skill check) which favors tank lists. So do I take my cool 9 Crusader, 6 Sherman, 9 UNiversal Carrier list?

2, the Infantry list: I also have a neat infantry list that crams in all my painted infantry, plus 8 25pdrs, 6pdrs 17pdrs oh and 3 Churchill III's

3, the "back to basics" list, in these pics Ca$H and Big Wills are reverting back to the first lists they used back in the day: Will is using his Royal Canadian Regiment instead of german tanks, while Ca$h is using his Panzer Grens again, instead of german tanks. I could also go back to my first lists which was HMG, MOrtar, Rifles, Shermans, Crusaders, 6Pdrs.. basically one of everything I had built when I first played back on new years day!

Enjoy the rest of the pics, noting that Will's green vehicles used to be Desert Rat colored, but he switched out so that he could play in any period realy. Super smart

  1. since like you said the terrain rules favor Tanks and the missions are FFA,encounter and fighting withdrawl, the first 2 favoring tanks well then i think you should bring tanks, thats what i would have brought but sadly i have an other engagement, good luck .

  2. I liked that advice so much I used the tank list in the last Friday Night Fights before the tournament, and they were great!. Tempted to maybe switch out 2 of the 3 recce Carriers for a Motor Rifle platoon, just so I can dig in on one of my objectives.. we'll see

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:
