Easy 8's, SU-57, Daimler Dingos, Oh My.

So last Sunday, Phantom and I drove up to the army base up in Petawawa to buy a few things from Perkins' store, and he showed me the cool stuff that is on base. I had only ever gone into town to the store so had no idea. Here are some pics.
(above) One of 3 Easy 8's on base that we saw. The green is a lot lighter than the typical BattleFront allied Green. Though this could have been issued after the war for Korea
A classic: The Universal Carrier near the Royal Canadian Dragoons building
Phantom's kid all over a Leopard MBT
A paratrooper support weapon: A soviet SU-57 tank destroyer. Reminds me of the low-tier TD from World of Tanks!
Me in front of another Easy 8. Below is the video, we have an '88, a german 15cm howitzer, Centurion, C-47 "goonie bird" and some Daimler Dingo's (which in Canada were called Ferrets) Enjoy.. coming soon is the first in a video series about how I go about planning and painting an army, and how to make the whole army stand out, rather than a straight-up painting tutorial.

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:
