Lorraine 37L w/ 15cm Howitzers

So, as last week's post stated, this unit rocked vs that Soviet force, single-handedly wiping out/routing a ten-strong unit of T-34's then breaking the back of a depleted infantry unit as it charged my Panzer Grenadiers.. Therefore they earned themselves a good paint job at the top of the painting pile. Here is the entire battery plus 37L objective marker, which was my test model as well.

More pics and text...




This is a command/OP Lorraine. Below is the historical picture. Note the binocular periscopes for ranging in.

Very boxy.. wouldnt be surprised if these were called Volvo 37L's :)
Below is the historical pic. I have experimented with the bushes, and haven't found anything I like yet, I may leave them bare. Also note, the "real" camo is NOTHING like what the BF Studio used.. which is why I had to repaint them.


Last but not least is the "Mattress Mobile" radio truck, which is technically the staff team's vehicle, though these guys have no maps, but have some "liberated" french alcohol.. Clever Hans indeed!

Hope you enjoyed the pics, hopefully they continue to melt face tomorrow night in-game!

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:
