AAR 75, Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi

"Loading these 'ere guns is tough work, 'ey mate?!"


Well after a long hiatus, I have an AAR for you guys that I actually played in!   Phantom hosted a game at the Matt-Cave on his sweet felt desert table, and we did Brit 8th army vs Aussie Div. Cav, 1625 pts, in preparations for Fall Fubar (2 weeks away!)


My List:  
Motor Company HQ
Motor Platoon
HMG platoon in trucks
Carrier platoon
6lbr Portee platoon
4 gun RHA troop
3 Kingforce Churchills
2 Kingforce Churchills

Phantom took:
CIC, 2IC in Crusaders
Crusaders
Shermans
Shermans
4 guns RHA
Carriers
Hurricane D Model                                            
As usual a few pics, then video at the bottom, Enjoy
After my recce move, I was close to the town, and the objective in the wood at the end of the road (in the small woods)


Turn 2, you can see my carriers are just within 4 of the crashed Hurr'c, but behind the hedges enough to not be seen.   This forces Phantom to pitch models forward to contest turn after turn or lose the match.


Meanwhile, my unpainted Churchies take a pounding from AT 11 Cannons!  Hurray 'protected ammo' though


Phantom's ShermanIII's look like they have slogged long and hard across the desert to get to this town

Yes its childish, but Phantom's felt table surface leaves cool track marks as I dragged my Churchies forward!


I eventually lose my carriers, but by now my reserves are coming..


..including 6lbers who drive up and fire into the sides of ShermanIIIs..

Here is the video, folks...

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:
