Hobby Article part 2

Quick post, here is part 2 of the Hobby Series. I should come up with a clever name haha. First picture you see the difference between my old Italy scheme and my new desert-only, Iraqi Sand scheme. By leaving the original darker color between the panels, I almost don't need to go back over with a blacklining pen. Second pic is of Bill Wilcox' Early War A13. This is what I am talking about, the simple addition of guys on the tank goes MILES in terms of adding extra theme and 'oomph' to a model. His whole BAR looks like this, guys on almost every tank.
Bonus Pic: Aces High, a player run mission to flatten an enemy airfield leads to 45 B-17s, trying to stay under radar altitude. We got scouted anyways, but with this many MGs firing, any single planes that came our way (and there were some) got melted. I got 3 kills, 3 assists. However, because we got scouted, when we got close to the target, there was 20+ Bf-110s, P38s, etc waiting for us. Fun times.. note the lone Spitfire giving us escort!

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:
