Friday Night Fights 50.. FIFTY!

(above) The hedges is a little shout out to the folks who flagged my videos to go down on Youtube!!

So we have just hit 50 After Action Report Videos.. and we did it in under a year. Which reminds me I need to catch up on our AAR page, but I digress..

The last FNF was 2 days before the second big Flames of War tournament we've ever had in our fair city, the OMG (Ottawa Miniature Gaming) Tournament. It is 1500 pts, LW, 3 missions, 3 hours per, 16 players and we had a waiting list.. 2 of our guys didnt get in sadly, Marty and Duane.

Brett decides to switch gears and go with a fast Soviet Tanko list, with some Tank riders (which look amazing btw), some IS-2s, a metric tonne of T34s, and some sappers and Katyushkas. I was using the exact same list Ive been running for months, its finally all painted!

Nice pics here of Adam's finished Lehr force. I like the Mortar painted up like we saw it at the museum the other night!

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:
