A few pics of Cangames

 So there was over the past weekend a local Con, called Cangames.  Back in the day, it was literally the only event in town.  I recall playing my very first 40k tourney here.  Many things have changed over the years, with quality all over the place.  This year, I stopped by to see the small F0W and 40k tourney, but decided to take shots of 2 other games running.  
 The first game is a 28mm WW I game, as you can see, Germans vs British.


 And below, is some shots of a 20mm WW2 game revolving around parachuting in to France during D-Day.  Check the cool Parachute markers, Wirbelwind, completely oversized Horsa glider, and a 1/72 C-47





 Lastly, a shot of my first completed DAK vehicle, a PzII with the black pen lining and sponge/spackled grey weathering.  I think it looks great, but looking at a calender, I realize Summer Siege is in just a few weeks, so I need to finish off some French DB stuff for it (Especially since Mike Haught has updated the points cost of the LW PDF for Version III!)

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:
