UPDATE: NOW 20 Video AAR's up on the AAR page.

(above) Adam beat me to it, finishing his army yesterday, but I just finished mine also: sdKz 182, aka PanzerVIB, aka Tiger II, completed, finally! I worked a bit on the Monastery I won at Skirmish for Best Painted.. it is pre painted but the rubble looked pretty bad, so I embellished a little.


However, the real announcement is I am slowly working on having ALL of our Flames of War Battle Report Videos on the AAR page (top below title up there), and I also have another 65+ 40k and WFB ones after we are done.

Keep in mind, these are our first ten games of Flames of War ever! Its neat though to look back and see the progress we have made in the past 10 months, with terrain and with models. I will try and put in another 10 this week sometime, but enjoy! UPDATE: all AAR's up to our large multiplayer game at the local Con are now up.



The first 20 can be viewed here:

  1. Hey Matt, I just got into Flames of War by buying the open fire! starter set. I was wondering if you or anyone else has any suggestions as this game can look quite intimidating for a new comer

  2. Go to WWPD.net and download their free podcasts. Almost every one of them has really good info about armies and the rules, etc.... That should be a good starting point. And read/watch our AARs and other AARs out there. The flamesofwar.com forums are good too but you have to register to visit them....

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:
