Deutsche Afrika Korps, test vehicle



Well, I figured I may as well work on some DAK guys, seeing as my Game Summit stuff is done (2 weeks away), and the MW tournament up at CFB Petawawa is in April, I should work on them before my Free French!

My list, NA book, MW 1500 pts:

HQ: PanzerIIIN OC, upgraded to Rettemeier, 2IC is a PanzerIVF1
PanzerIVF1 x5
PanzerIIIN x4
PanzerIIF x4
LeichtePanzerSpah patrol
1500 even.




These are the colors I used, yes I tried using the 'Steve' pen to do the sharp lines, but went nuts on the darkening, and you can hardly see them. Still, I like having more German Grey showing, though the squares of grey where the insignia are on got lost with the Iraqi Sand drybrushing..

Rear quarter shot. I'm sure that nazi palm tree will get easier to paint as time goes on.

My 1500 point army, awaiting stowage and antennas before the paint shop gets their hands on 'em.

  1. Matt judging by the photo Rettemeier appears to be in a Pz III L or M, where as those Pz III N's are actually J early's

  3. I was thinking of going to Game Summit. All I've got EW/MW desert Brits - how likely is it that I'd find a pick up game?

  4. During the Flames of War tourney or after it might not be great chance to get a game. But the day before or after I'm sure someone will be there with an army. Post it up on the forums and try to arrange one.

  6. Ugh.. sort of makes me want to redo my Germans. The drybrush approach just looks so sharp.

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:
