In The Pipeline...or...Joyous' WIP

Alright, so of the Dice Devils, I have been without home Internet for awhile and thought posting was a lost cause until I found the blogger app!

So without further adieu, I give you guys a sneak of some upcoming articles ill roll out this week and a preview of my forces in the upcoming Italy Campaign we are running. 

First Up is my new objectives I'm working on. Mostly done but need decals and weathering to finish them off. 







Next we have a couple little 3/4 tonne trucks I did up while painting one night at ThunderST's place in preparation for the Italy campaign (hint, they go with some big guns ;) )




Next up is a test scheme for some LW Germans I plan to eventually procure and paint. 





Lastly...and the reason I haven't been doing a lot of FoW painting lately is my re-immersion in Warhammer fantasy (WFB) These are a few of the Dwarfs I have worked on over the last couple months. I know WFB isn't covered much on DD but with my current love-in, I have some painting tutorials, conversions and bat reps to share over the coming weeks. 







Oh...and the Italy Campaign!

I'll be running FSSF (Devil's Brigade) for the campaign almost purely as an excuse to paint some units for my US that have sat in a box for too long, namely 105 Battery, 155 Battery, 90mm Heavy AA, 75mm Halftrack TDs and a whole mess of FSSF infantry!

Thanks for looking and see you all soon.

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:
