Success Is Not Final





We are coming to the closing out of another year of games, painting and changes to the Flames of War landscape. I believe them to be positive ways forward, points levels, a new army list builder with Forces of War and the newer plastic models from Battlefront are fantastic looking. Board games are back and better than ever, card games are making an impact here in our group as well!!



With the release of more plastics, I think 2015 is going to be another good year for Flames of War. The little debacle of the building subscriptions is WAY behind us, the unknown of what the 'new' EasyArmy was going to look like passed without much anger. This is about what the future  holds and where you plan on going in 2015!


The new plastic Stug G sprue. With very few parts, including the track sprue (not shown) gives you an option to add these tanks to your Flames of War armies. Get them together, paint them and get them on the table!

I have a few things I want to take care of in my new year. More articles for you to read and comment on. We plan on hitting the studio and continuing with our podcast, it's been popular enough and we thank you for downloading us into your homes, planes, trains and automobiles! Future topics should be plentiful, as the ever changing landscape of interests and games continues to grow here at Dice Devils HQ.


I'll be working towards an airfield table similar to this one in 2015.


Running some more events this year than last year, both locally and at other locations in our gaming community. We'll bring you our lists, our wins and losses to the podcast and more After Action Reports for the site.


My painting queue for the next few months, add on a platoon of Sherman 76mm, the new Panzer IV box from Battlefront and work on some early war Brits. It's going to be a great year!!


A few more touch ups and my LW Germans out of the Italy books will be a lot of fun to play in 2015. Thanks a lot for stopping by and we'll be bringing you a lot more Flames of War, board games, card games and even some more console/pc gaming in the New Year!! Cheers. -Dice Devils

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:
