Go High or Go Home

So over the course of the past few weeks, MattVarnish and myself have been taking to the sky in the name of freedom. Aces High is an online only WW1/WW2 combat flight sim with all the bells and whistles of amazing gameplay and pretty good graphic representation of the aircraft you can take control of. It's funny that both Varnish and I have dads who were in the Air Force and we were in Germany near the same time and played a lot of the super old flight sims, games like ACE, Mig Alley, F19 Stealth Fighter and of course Ace of Aces, the WW2 Mosquito combat flight game.
This takes me back.......
F19 night mission! Great game!
Refuelling in ACE was never easy!!

Jumping into a wide array of WW2 aircraft in Aces High is an easy task and this game is not too hard on most computer systems. The fact that it is online and puts you against other people in combat situations is a lot of fun. As our adventures on bombing missions and driving around in a PT Boat continue, so will the updates and exploits of two Dice Devil members taking to the skies.

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:
