Friday Night Fights AAR 38


Brent, aka Tickron, decided to give this thing we call Flames of War a try after playing a tonne of World of Tanks as Russians. Brett aka Pripyat, helps him out vs my 21 Panzer list from the previous post. Here is his first tank, a Zvezda plastic T-26. The color scheme is good, I like the weathering effect of it.. just needs red stars

They ran:
10 T34s, half were '85mm guns
Full Strelkovy (Confident Trained)
Slightly smaller Strelkovy (CT)
Sappers
ZiS-3 battery
5 T-70s

I had:
Command Panzerfausts in halftracks
2 units of full Gepanzertes in Halftracks, with Panzerfaust and 2.7 cm gun upgrades
3 Lorraine L37 15cm Howitzers plus halftrack upgrade
3 Panzerwerfers with Extra Crew
2 '88 Guns with extra crew
Panzer VIB aka KingTiger


Pics and Video after the break.  Klick Herr




Te soviet side sees the ZiS-3 observer on the roof of the factory in the foreground, with a tonne of infantry about to do the march to retake the ruined village my Panzer grenadiers were defending.



My PanzerGrenadiers.. the others in the town aren't painted so, the ones in the fields will have to do!





Video of the game plus we discuss a bit afterwards. Hope you enjoy.

For any Starcraft2 players out there.. there was a good concave in this game, the Horseshoe of Doom.

  1. That was a Mechanized List. It was not my first choice to use and it was made with the models what weren't being used in my first choice.

    Since it was a Mechanized list it has some major disadvantages but lets you take 2 Tank Co. It has no Flamethrowers. It has no Sapper HQs. It could take 2 units of 5 T-34s but then you lose 195 pts for doing that and can't take the T-70s.

    The Zis-3s were not great. They were there for AT but against a King Tiger....

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:
