  1. Bob actually won best painted, because he placed Rob won.

    Would you guys be interested in coming up with a system to score our events on? would it still be official?

    Because AD isnt going away, I know at least one for EW, im building a Fort FJ list or late and Bobs playing Westfalen.

    The games aren't alphabetical I played Richard, the system does not prioritize alphabetical matchups but it does factor it, unfortunately, with all the Germans, it happened. We have been rating players under the options in an effort to have the first draw be with players of similar skill, however we haven't been able to see quite how it works yet.

    Matts write up is going to kill me haha, I sucked so hard.

  2. It's not your events, it's the weird scoring in FoW in general. Right now there are a few other ways to do it, but I can't recall the last time they were discussed. Tristan mentioned there is a way in the settings to circumvent a lot of the match-ups and make them more random. I commend the players of equal skill thing, but players get better by playing better players. I have one win against you Brad.....and that came at Nationals and if not for a failed assault, it could have gone the other way. The game in Pet on Sunday I am not counting, as you did not get very lucky and it seemed you were 'elsewhere' during our game....but I'll be kind in my AAR of the Pet tourny!

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:
