Late War Escalation starts!! AAR 37

(above) Awesome Bocage board by Shawn TerrainGuy Morris.. thanks man, eternal thanks for this board!


So, after a tonne of months playing Mid War, and we finish off with the Skirmish FoW tourney (Ottawa's first FoW tournament), we dive right in to Late War, and as usual we are going to run an Escalation League. In the Video, we started with our old point limit of 600 for tier 1, 1000 for tier 2 and 1500 for tier 3, but the OMG guys are running a LW tourney in October, so we have decided to ramp it up to 750, then 1500.


Below are some shots of Marty 'Joyous Oblivion''s Stuart list vs Ca$h's Cromwell/Challenger list. In the video, as a bit of everything.












Afterwards, we decided to play 2 v 2 with 750 point lists. I asked if we HAD to take 2 combat platoons, or if we could go with just one given that its 750 points. Ca$h said one is fine, so I took an HQ Tiger II and a troop Tiger II. They killed off 4 cromwells, a challenger and 3 ISU-122's. Hells Yeah!

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:
