Quick Painting Update: DAK

 Hey guys a quick quick update, Over the past 2 weeks, I've been painting like a madman on my EW- MW Germans.   I have quickly blasted through the infantry and got them to a playable state:   In this case, Feldgrau, skin tones, steel, buff coloured helmets.   This is my pre-wash and then hyper detail phase, as seen below.


 Also got this parking lot of armour spray coated in the darker brown scheme.   You see either the very light coloured german desert stuff or the darker brown.  Figurd as my Desert Rats are already teh bright colour, to tone these guys down some.
 For fun, I washed and hyper detailed th HMG platoon.  As usual, all the interesting bits to see are on the back of the models: straps, equipment, etc.

The list I'll be using for Early war practice games is 1550 points (Historicon next year Pt Value)
Schutzen Kompanie HQ
2 units of Schutzen, with AT RIfle, Lt Mortar
1 unit of MG-34s, to be combat attached out if need be.
5 Panzer II Cs
2 units of 8-Rads
2 7.5cm Inf Guns
4 10.5 cm Arty

This is by no means the list I'm going to take to Historicon, as I think it will be a Kradschutzen Kompanie, but I can play around with the stuff I have assembled and in the case of infantry, in a playable state.
Expect a few Batreps up later this week, from RObK's Jock Column and ThunderST's Panhorde!

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:
