Something Old, Something New: Moderns and Napoleonics armies FINISHED


Well I just came off a stay-cation, and painted up like a madman.. Finished my Modern-era Soviets AND my Napoleonic French.   Giant picture dump follows after the jump:
 

 
 
3 units of Motor Rifles.  Mix of QRF and BF infantry, QRF and Zvezda vehicles.

Just infantry

Transports (QRF BTR-80s)

Zvezda BTR's I removed the turrets so they look like BTR-60s

Crashed Canadian UH-1 objective.   'Straight-Flush' ZSU Air Defence radar in the background is my second objective.

ZSU-23-4s

Zvezda Mi-24 Hind D.   Note it is VERY SMALL compared to the UH-1.

10 x T-54 (Battlefront, spare T-34 fuel tanks on the rear deck)


 

CO and 2IC T-72's (QRF in the back, Zvezda with ERA blocks in the foreground)

QRF T-72s.  Possibly the worst metal on the face of the earth to work with.  Be warned.

All 12 T-72s.  In FAON or Vietnam games, the T-72s are counts-as the T-54s with the night vision equipment.. these have the sensors to the left of the main gun

French Artillery: 8 guns, 2 horse artillery + supply wagon (Thanks ThunderST)

Horse artillery made up of spare horses and spare guns

 

 

Close up of gun and crew. I still think the green trails / wheels is stupid looking, but it is historical!

4 Command, 4 Cavalry, and 5 Foot units.

Close up of Dragoon and Officer

It took longer to rebase these guys than anything else.  1977 sculpts and made of lead....

Dragoons and Hussars?
 Well that's that.   Time to get cracking on my Italians for Early War now.   Hope you enjoyed these... it sure feels good to be done with them!

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:
