Podcast Episode One

After a successful first podcast, Episode Zero introduced our little group as we dove into Flames of War and other topics. We've just wrapped up episode 1 and it should be up this weekend! Myself, Tristan and Dennis dive right into Canadian Nationals, upcoming events and even some retro video game chatter.

We'd really like to hear from you, if you download this episode and have something to say, please drop a comment below. We look forward to bringing you more Canadian content and our perspective on all things Flames of War, tournaments and other interesting topics! Thanks for listening!



Here it is!!



EDIT BY MATT VARNISH:

Here are some pics I took of Cdn Nationals.. just for giggles.

 Table set up on Friday (Thanks Petawawa crew!)

 
Lothann (l) vs PhantomRescue (r) both of Dice Devils square off round one!


Phantom's dug in Airborne vs more stubborn vet infantry.. can you survive the Sitzkrieg?


 Shawn Morris awesomely painted winter germans


More Shawn Morris


 If some folks think the I-95 tables are dense... you need to come up here!!


 Andrew Tripple, always one to bring a wacky list, brings the Pain Train


 Jason (?) came up from the US with these great boggy based Russians


 More russians


A 262 tries to lay some heat onto those troops dug in that wood...


James Huff (L) from the US brought Canadians, 16 guns and AVRE Crocs..!!..


 ...and they were very well painted (Staff table in a house.. how very British!)


 Dice Devil Rob Kelly's Canadian tanks try and take out the Lehr King Tiger


Phil Messier (I think) brought an observer with a cool base.. but its a TAD fishy when calling in fire from a steeple..   He brought the Shrubbery!


The 101st player brought Winters.. and Paul Nelson put up a $20 dollar cash bounty on the first player to kill him.  He went down in game 6 I believe!!




Whats a Canadian Tournament w/o a winter board? (from Battlefront)



44 players attended.. very good turnout for Labour Day long weekend!






Remember that dense City table? Fortified company playing lengthwise...
Mein Lieben!


My Free French vs ThunderST's light tank company.  He was shocked that I auto-attack with my ARPs!!


Just too much French! I would eventually take that center objective in the crop for the 4-3 win.

  1. Great pics. Are the free french icons hand painted or decals?

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:
