Quick Update & OMG tournament primer

So we just had the OMG tournament, I will be posting interview-style vids later, I also have a backlog of AAR's, and I'm sure the lads will post their post-tournament thoughts at some point. And Drew from CoveringFire is sure to post pics and AAR of our nailbiter.

A bit of history.. back in AUgust, right after Skirmish, I decided to take my King Tigers in a tournament, but also paint up a regular force, and so it would be a massive surprise. I even went so far as to email back and forth to a few folks who weren't attending.. and came up with the following list

LW 1500 pts, Earth & Steel, 503rd Schwere PanzerAbteilung

HQ Tiger II with Bergepanther 365
Tiger II 340
Tiger II 340
Panzerwerfer battery x 3, extra crew 180
Pioneers, full unit, Faust upgrade, 270
1495 total.

Now, prior to the tournament, some folks, whether by choice or couldnt get stuff painted, where switching lists to heavy tanks/lots of tanks, so I spilled the beans Friday, so people didn't think I was a D-Bag and tailored my list to a meta or something.. that I had been planning this all along. Then we get to the tournament, and I see a TONNE of killer lists that could easily take mine down.

So thats why I didn;t take the list I've been playing non stop with for 2 months!

Anyways, expect some more posts now that the busy, pre-tournament period is done.

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:
