40K Perfect Storm

For me there is a 40K pefect storm developing.  The new Edition 6 is coming out, Canada just bought 500 new armoured vehicles which I have to have and Gamesummit Skirmish happens in September.  All these events have conspired for me to build a new army.  As I already have an army based on the Canadian army in Afghanistan I'm going to build an army based on the Canadian army back in Canada.  They will be dressed in green camouflage rather tan in desert uniforms and will be riding in the new Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicles (TAPV) that Canada has just bought.  I may also build some M777 howitzers.

Here is a link to the vehicles we just bought.  http://textrontapv.ca/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/TAPV%20datasheet.pdf

Photos of my build will be up soon.

Here is what my present 1500 point 40K Army looks like.



And now on to the build.












 I've now tacked some GW Bitz onto the vehicle to see what it'll look like.  I try to use as many GW parts as possible to keep with the 40K look and feel.




 I'll be using Ork trukk wheels as they are about the right size.

  1. I've always preferred Canadians to Canatachans.

  2. That ad for the vehicle is so strange - "form and function" - reads like a normal car ad.

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:
