Mirror Match: Aus v Aus AAR 64



Well its been a few weeks, but we are back with a Friday Night Fight at Ca$h's, using the complete desert terrain set on one table. I am playing PhantomRescue, who is running MW Australian Div Cav list. I decided to use the EXACT same list as him. I have to sub Grants-for-Shermans, and I also need to stop playing SWTOR to paint stuff this week! Above is the table set up. The lighting is weird because of the glare from the bright table.

The list for the both of us:
2 x HQ Crusader II
3 x Crusader II
3 x Crusader II
3 x ShermanIII
3 x ShermanIII
3 x Universal Carrier
4 x 25pdrs

We rolled up Free For All


About turn 3, we had this crazy Crusader Scrum. Only when fighting other Crusaders does Front Armor 4 make any sense!


After the Crusader scrum, I come out ahead with the 2IC Crusader on his obj, and 2 Crusader plus CO Crusader after a crazy tank battle! It would take a miracle for him to win, as I am about to win (He has to kill the Crusaders, concealed, with 25 pdrs, then take me below half) Video at the bottom


Here is a nutty FSJ vs Canadians shot, between Pripyat and RKelly.


Below is video with end game dissection (because it was crazy)

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:
