OMG Tournament video

We had the pleasure to attend the Ottawa Miniature Gamer's Flames of War tournament, or OMG TOurny for short. When we had Skirmish a few months back, 4 or 5 guys from OMG came out, and now we return the favor. It was Late War, 1500 pts, not theatre-specific. I decided to not take the German list I have been playing for 3 months, and bring the King Tiger list instead. In fact, I had this planned for many months, and to "spring" it on folks. However, when I got there and saw that there was a strong contingent of players from CFB Petawawa (Army base 2 hours out). This meant a LOT of AOP's and Commonwealth artillery, which naturally crush top armor. There was also an army with 11 Churchills, which I would face game 1!
Here are some more shots of the tables.
The venue was awesome, the OMG guys play at this location twice a month, and play not just FoW, but Napoleonics, etc. Price couldn't be beat: 10 bucks, which covered the room, 2 slices of Pizzas, a drink, plus there was prize support. Man, THATS bang for your buck. Many thanks go out to Jeff, Todd and the OMG guys for putting on such a great event, we will be back for sure!


I took some shots of armies and so on, but the lighting was pretty bad, and my Flash is super harsh. However I HAD to get a shot of this army from a Petawawa guy, I think Bob's (who is running the Petawawa tourney in November) Check out that sweet sherman bridge layer objective, and the field hospital!

***EDIT I'll add more text here from workEDIT ***
Here is my video from the event. I wanted to do Interview-style like the WWPD boys did, but should have done it outside like they did, so it isn't as loud! I elected to take a bit of film from the game between Chris and I, but it was so one sided.. we skipped to the end.

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:
