Some Game Summit 2013 Coverage

Long story short, we had our big tournament at a new venue, Game Summit 2013.    The event is turning into a full fledged Con from its humble beginnings from a few years ago.   How do you know you've made it?   Klingons and StarWars folks, thats how!    Anyhoo here are some pics, and a quick Video of the Setup (I don't take video during tournament games anymore)

 TK421, why aren't you at your post?


 Huge-Settlers game equipment
 Huge-Settlers map, cleverly made by cutting carpet into hexes.  The houses were blocks of wood, painted
 Sadly this is the best shot I got of the Klingon booth.  I hope others got a few pics
 Huge-COnnect 4 and Huge-Chess & Checkers
 Best 15 dollars ever spent:  1940's era fuel truck for the airfield board.
 I had commissioned Jeff Black of OMG club for the awesome hangars.  Also, plane nerds, what is the large 2 engined bomber?  Hint, it was actually used against the British, and its not a Condor.
 ThunderST kindly lent his awesomely painted V2 launcher for the airfield table
 Thanks to those that brought extra planes.. here is the "captured german stuff"
 And here is the allied stuff.. I want that Halifax model something fierce!
 Quite a messy cluster of Germans vs Staghounds.  My Shermans later found out that some of 'em have AT 10 CrusaderIII turrets!!!
Mike Abbott's incredible Para's army.  This army got my best painted vote, though to be fair the lvl of painting keeps climbing higher and higher at each event, so its getting tougher to pick a clear winner.

Big thanks to the GS Set up crew, the Dice Devils set up volunteers (the free breakfast is a lie) and bigger thanks to Ca$H, who ran the event for us again this year.  It was a smashing success, good show old boy.

Here is my video of the setup, as I don't vid during tournies anymore.

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:
