AAR 54, Cromwells v Das Reich

(above) 7th AD Cromwells in the Counter Attack mission vs Das Reich Inf.

So its been a while, but we had a tournament 2 weeks ago, then Adam (Clockwerks) send-off to Calgary last week, so we have 3 games for this Friday Night Fights
The next tournament for us is Game Summit in February 2012, it is LW 1500 points, and folks are running new lists.

Tristan is running 7th AD, Reluctant Vets, roughly:

2 HQ Cromwells, 2 AA Crusaders
Cromwells plus Firefly (Challenger model = Firefly)
Cromwells plus Firefly
4 x Achilles (M10s with 17pdrs)(proxied by Panzer IV-70s)
3 Recce Stuarts
2 Recce Damilers, 1 Dingo (proxied by UCs)
2 Sextons for smoke, AOP

Chris is running Das Reich:

HQ Shreck guys
Full unit of SS plus Shrecks
Full unit of SS plus Shrecks
small scout squad
2 x Grilles
10.5 Arty x 3
2 x Flak guns

Video below the next pic.


In Counter Attack, the attacker rolls randomly for where their stuff deploys, somehow Tris gets all his tanks in the same spot!!

  1. Great aar! I'm tweaking my own 7th Armoured Div,now i'm leaning toward switching my 25 pdrs for mobile Sextons. i'd like to be able to easily displace if things start coming at me. say, where do i find that mission?
    are there more ' unofficial ' missions out there?
    very cool.

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:
