CDN NATIONALS: Friday Night Fight, Massive Team Yankee Game!

Only part-way through deployment, Soviet side
 In what I hope is a tradition going forward, Rob K organized a big Team Yankee game Friday before the tourny by using 4 of the Tourney tables pushed together, plus our TY scenery.    Rob "I dunno, I think maybe 24 feet by 8 is too much"

The other part of the room, tables ready for battle



That's a LOT of soviet armour..


These Cdn M109s from Rob K were only a quarter of the artillery that NATO had.


Rob K also had Cdn TOW missile units.   The man in the Lynx represents a certain 'Bob McBride' in his time in W. GER.   He is at the tournament playing Japanese now


Cobras, doing what they do best which is hiding like cowards behind trees!


Hastily assembled Leopards, Marders and Luchs's


German MLRS, backing up the 3 FULL batteries of M109s on their side...


 More US forces in the town, with more M109s in the background


Cdn REMFer having a 'dart'* before the days' heavy fighting


Cdn troops defend the Gasthaus, as always.


View from NATO side.


Jed's Afghantsiy hope to land back here.  What could possibly go wrong??


The 'Plan' was for the frogfoots to clear out an LZ.
Didn't work out, Afghantsiy landed anyways, got murdered.


Advance of the Red (Tan and Grey)Army


As people arrived, they would add reinforcements, like these great-looking M1s


Arty Party.  All you need now are Lasers...


Jed wonders how the Red Air Force has let him down, and lands anyways.


18 Copperhead laser-guided rounds take out 17 T-72s all at once!.  Concentrated M1 and assorted fire take out the background cluster of T-72s.  This would stem the tide, and end the game early.
Thanks for organizing the game Rob, and thanks to everyone who came and brought some models to shoot the sh@# and roll some dice on a Friday night. It was cool to see more equipment on a table than the Cdn Army has TOTAL at any one point :)

I will have more pics of Day 1 shortly.  45 players, my over-under on # of Jap armies is at 9.  :)

*BTW 'Having a Dart' is Cdn for having a smoke.

To further bolster your 'Cdn', I suggest "Out Fer a Rip" : (NSFW)

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:
