Early War Beckons!

So I finally had a 180 moment, where I wanted to start early war...I think it was a combination of playing World of Tanks, and seeing some Early War germans painted up on the Flames of War website.

So here is my first attempt at an early war colour scheme. The tank isn't done but the colours are where I want them.

  1. Man oh Man, that looks really good JO.. I think since right now we are doing LW for Battle Cry up in Petawawa, then LW again (probably) for Game Summit in February, that we should get something going for EW in the spring. I have my Desert Rats in the dazzle colors to paint, I know TwinLinked has his Italians, and Adam has Desert Rats also, and I could do my DAK to get another german player in.

    THe WWPD guys seem to love the new EW book, so I'm really looking forward to it.

  2. Early War = AWESOME!
    Seriously....it is a lot of fun. The tanks can get really oddball as well. But you also can end up with a good number of them as well. Cheers

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:
