AAR 44, 21 Panzer vs FallSchirmJager +Rob's Canadians

(Above) Rob aka RKelly and Adam aka Clockwerks go toe to toe: Gepanzertes vs Canadians



Friday Night Fights, at Rob's place again on his gorgeous tables. Pripyat and I played on the Afghanistan/Italy table (video below) while I took some snapshots of their game. Rob has been toiling away at his Canadians, so I just had to post pics.





(above and below) Clockwerks' Germans, soon-to-be-Lehr we are told, including those frustrating Puma's, prepare to go on the offensive.

(above) The nicest Shermans I have ever seen. Click to zoom in on that Firefly, it has the long barrel camoflage, black on top to mask the 17pdr, and wavy white lines underneath, to reduce shadowing on the ground of it. Just look at all that stowage on there.

17pdr AT gun. I love those Hessian strips on all the helmets. Makes me wish I was Canadian, oh wait I am!

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:
