Marders take out an eager Su-152.  One Marder bogs on the walled compound.

Nebs hit and pin infantry.  Pios open up as the Soviet infantry get too close for comfort.
Turn 3:

Depleted FSJ prepare to counter on their turn and push those pesky Soviets back off of half.

Marders gun down one of the remaining two teams and the lone survivor quits the field.

After pushing the infantry and tanks back FSJ take cover.

Turn 7:
Right flank.
FSJ assault the infantry again and breakthrough into the Su-85s.  Volley fire top of turn 7 and DF in the bottom of turn 7 reduces the unit down to 2 teams.  Severely depleted they consolidate into cover.  Only to have the panzershreck team killed by volley fire on Turn 8.
Turn 8:
Lone FSJ Platoon Commander tries to kill off the two remaining members of the Soviet infantry on the right flank.  Fails and is killed in a failed assault.  Rifle/MGs, Nebs and Mortar try to kill off 45mm guns fail but maange to kill the commander. Pak 40s (who arrived on turn 6 take out the remaining Su-85. As the remaining Soviets are unable to keep pushing forward we call it there as a 5-2 win for zee germans.

Great game Chris, even if we played a little slowly!

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:
