Desktop Tacticians? Starcraft2 time.

(above) Here is my ultimate BM, I got wiped but my ally was mopping up so I used my remaining one SCV to build this and taunt my enemies to scan it before they died. This is from a while ago. I find its a good title pic for SC2 segment!!


A bunch of the lads have been playing some SC2, and until a copy of retail FRAPS mysteriously finds its way into my email, I'll post pics for now.




First game we have a FFA, Lothlann went Protoss, Clockwerks went Zerg and I went Terrans.



Quick GL's go out, I am top left on Elysium. Didn;t take too many screens since right away, Clock and I were battling for my expansion.
Which of course left Lothlann to.....


Go Mothership... Not Pictured: The 6 Carriers under the cloaking field. My Vikings cant even get close


My main goes down in seconds.. maybe he had more Carriers under the cloak. I decide to scan his base real fast before I lose my other Orbital Command to see....


Thats one hell of a fleet base. I GG out. Note at this time, this is his reserve fleet. The main fleet just wiped out Clock's base, and here he is GG'ing out as well.


It wasn't even close, but such is life in FFA, the player who is untouched gets to build pretty much whatever they want! GG Lothlann. Thats an impressive score.




We decided to do some spectate games. Here we have Lothlann vs Clock, double random, on High Orbit I think. Both are zerg as it turns out.


Lothlann is trying to hold off Clock's attack on his Hydra Den and Spire. Sadly, his expansion is far away (click and look at minimap), and he has only half the zerglings at once. He loses both tech structures before killing the attacking wave.



Loth then attacks, but crucially cannot kill Clock's spire.



Loth rebuilds it 2 more times, but at this point, Clock has enough Mutas to pop it. Here it is exploding into raspberry jam.




Clockwerks takes the spectator match. GG by all, it was actually really close, I feel that Lothlann has the best chance on Random, as Clock and I both favor Zerg, but Loth can play all three. Here he ran into the favored race in his opponent.

Thanks for the games guys, was super fun!

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:
