FnF and Other Randomness

I'm certainly behind uploading some of the latest battles from The Dice Devils crew. A lot has been happening in preparation for our exodus to Historicon to play in their Flames of War 'Nationals' event, as well as a doubles event being held the Thursday before the rest of the convention really kicks off. We'll be attempting to gain access to the WWPD podcast while we're there and if you're not familiar with WWPD and it's network of tabletop, board and online gaming shenanigans...I know......let's have a spelling contest.

I had a chance to take a short video on a re-vamped Canadian list vs. my back up German 1780 point Infantry with a hodge podge of everything from 88's to Tiger I E's running around and assaulting unsuccessfully. I have been hard at work attempting to finish my US Para Coy in time for July. So far, with work being so busy and life in general getting in the way of my ability to sit without being distracted and paint when it's so damn nice outside, is tough to do. (cough)GOLFING(cough)

Sorry about the camera angle, I am not used to filming with this phone in the upright position and will do all my other vids in the standard 'wide screen' format from now on. I'll likely resurrect my Samsung Wave for pics and filming since it will do HD and takes great pics as well. I also do not like the fact that I have to film in segments on my current HTC OneX. This was an interesting game and I had fun playing against Rob for maybe the third or fourth time ever. It's nice to see him playing more and getting some more stuff painted and on the table. I also need to keep track of turns and try and get the WHOLE picture, but it's tough to play, film and keep track of what I am trying to accomplish during the game.

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:
