Back To The Future...40,000 Years Into the Future!

Hello guys and gals, Joyous here with something new and old at the same time. Originally, most of the Dice Devils' videos were of 40k bat reps (provided by our own MattVarnish) though with the rise of Flames of War in our group, the 40k games died down to a trickle, and then none within a couple years. Even most of of the Dice Devils now have sold off or are trying to sell off their remaining 40k armies.

I couldn't do it. Sure I trimmed some of my collections but I love the 40k universe and, who am I kidding here, the models.

Sure, its a premium price for GW models, but NO ONE has their level of quality in plastic models currently and none look even remotely close.

I knocked together a haphazard army of Space Marines for this battle report just to start trying the new rules.

Honestly, the game is a blast to play, and while it isn't the same game you remember, there is a tonne more in it now which makes it both more competitive and more prone to balance issues, though balance is easily fixed within your group of friends.

Anyways, without further adieu, here is the video, please enjoy and please comment to let me know what I can do to make the next battle reports better! Just don't say buy a new video camera and a tripod, as that's outside the budget, lol.

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:
