Some WIP French Napoleonic, Italian and Team Yankee shots

French Artillery limbers

A quick post to show off what I've been working on.  Plus got some decent pics of my Italians from last post I was talking about.   lately been trying to finish off another Brigade for my Napoleonics.   I have an Infantry Brigade of fusiliers and some light infantry, so it was time to finish off a Cav Brigade.


WIP of rebasing guns, and my two limbers. I had some spare guns, so I put some small Horse Artillery guns together, on the limbers of course.


Here they are finished, as well as two dragoon squadrons.


Close-up of the limbers and the Brigade Commanders on horse.
Its fun painting 28mm again after years of Flames of War 15mm.


Once finished, I could turn to my Team Yankee Soviet Air.
Note the Tetris-esque foam plucking.


3 color base: light grey underneath, Russian green, flat brown camo.


Little while later, the weapons and canopy are done.  Just needs decals!


My Italians. Truck-mounted guns and lots of M-13/M14s.


Someone order a pizza?


HQ plus Tankettes. 100 pts for 4 'tanks' with ROF 4 MG on the move? 
Yes please! I have 2 units.






Well that's that.  I played a few practice games last week, I'll post the videos later on.  I know, shocker.. Flames of War videos from me.. what is this, 2014??? :)

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:
