"I will read 500 posts, and I will read 500 more.."

500 posts man.  Wow.   What have I been up to?   I did a painting blitz (pun intended) on my DAK, now that we have a MW tournament coming up in Petawawa in April.  5 weeks away <gulp>

Here is some pics of what I am working on:





Since it is now March, lets see how my New Years Resolution is coming along, which is to do hobby related activity for 30 minutes a day, EVERY DAY, here is the Calendar of Doom:



I allow myself catch-up time, so lets say I fall behind, I can do a 90 minute session and catch up.  I finished assembling my DAK, came up with a list that I like at 1485/1500 points, and started painting.

 



Here is the actual list, for those who want some free intel for Petawawa and Historicon, as the only difference is the number of transports for that swing 15 pts!


The FK-36(r)s are captured soviet guns, the same that are mounted in the Diana, used as stop-gap measure until more AT guns that weren't PaK-36s showed up in North Africa.  Here is a pic of a real one at CFB Borden:



No models for this by Battlefront, so I went ahead and picked up 4 Zis-3 guns.   Very close enough, as the Zis-3 was the next-gen of my guns.

So thats the update.  See you guys next time!

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:
