AAR 58, US Vet's vs Duane's Germans

Quick post, I have to go work today unlike almost everyone else.. Above we have Andrew's US Veterans v Duane's Germans. Duane is using a tonne of stuff he never used before, like '88s, Goliath, trucked Pios.

Below, I show off my Christmas loot. I got a Flames of War case plus 1 each of all the desert terrain from GF9


  1. Great to see more bat reps - I watched the Loot one on youtube already. Nice haul! Hey can you guys add my blog to the blog roll -

  2. Duane should have done a few things. 1) advance the panthers spread out (you mentioned) but should have angled them behind the houses to above observers. 2) 88's should be shooting down AOP 3) Pioneers on foot doubling 2 straight turns (no additional danger from artillery. If he hadn't use the units he did what he thought would work, hind sight 20/20.

  3. I messed up in deployment; the denied flank was unnecessary. Combined with the terrain (ie: river) and the firing lanes of the 88s turned it into a turkey shoot.

    Things I should have done:

    - once the 88s saw off the shermans T1 I should have gone after the beaufors with the Panthers
    - this would have allowed the Stukas to go after the 155s instead of the 105s.
    - I would have forced marched the pios but I was worried about the Shermans, after that it was carnage.

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:
