AAR 69: World of Tanks Tier VIII style!

Can't believe its been 69 Flames of War battle reports already, I wonder if I can get the other 21 in by the end of 2012.. Anyways, this game was fought at Brent's wicked man-cave, which I give a brief tour of in the video below. 
We decided to play some Late War, and I took my 21 Panzers out for a spin, having not touched them since Game Summit. I decided the odds were high of Brent taking his Guards Tankovy list, so I took the 3 King TIger list that did so well for me at the OMG tournament last year. 
He instead brought an assault gun company led by Rat, so there were guns that could pierce the front armor 14 I had!! He also took 7-dice of Shturmovik. I reckoned in the first 2 turns I would lose a lot of points to air attacks, but the pilots would first have to learn how to read a map!
 My list: King Tiger, Bergpanther, 
 King Tiger
 King Tiger
 3 panzerwerfers with extra crew
 small unit of Pio's

 He had: RATT 
 3 ISU 152
 5 ISU 122 
a small unit of infantry, I think dismounted Tankodesantniki's 
BA-64 scout cars 
Priority IL-2M Shturmoviks

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:
