BattleBox Tourney 2013 @ Kobold's Corner

So yesterday (Saturday April 20, 2013) the  Ottawa Gatineau Warmachine Club hosted a "starter set" tournament at a newly opened store here in Kanata - Kobold's Corner. The local PressGanger George "Semiautomagic" had set up custom 2'x2' boards perfect for these small fast games - Take a look:

The tables were awesome- small, compact and perfect for the games. they really "encouraged" turn 1 action.

Click after the break to see more coverage!

Game 1 vs Bylak's Cryx. He was a blast to play against, and damn isn't Deneghra's Feat insane! I lost via Assassination but I would welcome a game against Bylak anytime.

Things started off looking good.......

Cryx closing in....

All those green tokens are wreck markers - what a slugfest!

Aubin's Retribution....I would play him later in the day...

Game #2 was against Cryx again - this time commanded by another newish player like myself - Addam

And Addam schooled me with Deneghra - I am gonna have to work on my Cryx matchups.

And then there was Sean's Searforge......and I learned what Gorten's Landslide does! I rushed both flags top of turn one...

And bottom of turn one Gorten feated - and moved all my beats to clear an open line to pLylth, who he promptly destroyed  ending the game at bottom of turn 1!! It was still fun and I learned A LOT!

 My game against Seva's Circle - I actually won this game, but not to any of my credit - Seva rushed the end zone a turn too early, exposing his caster to assassination....a lesson learned.

Here you can see the small "Feet/Feat" token that came in every participants "goodie bag". We all received a baggie of dice along with these custom markers for the FEAT turn....very cool idea and a welcome treat!

Thanks again to Semiautomagic - one of our local Pressgangers, his lovely wife Becky, and Kobold's Corner for hosting an enjoyable event yesterday. I met a ton of new people, and everyone was welcoming and outgoing.

I finished the day 2-3 and i think 10th out of 18? But man it was a blast. I am really looking forward to the upcoming Anomaly league and future tournaments.

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:
