Fall In 2016 Pictures: 40K, Epic, Frostgrave

A few of us went down to Fall In this year, and while we played historical gaming, there was some 'Fantasy / Sci-Fi' stuff that still looked amazing.
(40k Regional tourney called Mechanicon).
On display were some armies and also two massive Titans.
Using today's exhange rate, that Warlord is $2074 CDN !!




 Eldar Phantom.


 There was an Epic 40k tournament as well...


 More Epic



Epic resin Tau (they were painted dark grey, well painted, the camera picked up too much glare though, sorry)


Ran into Mike from Ottawa, playing his Guard. 
"In the Grim Darkness of the Far Future, there is no traffic!!"


Weird Dragon-themed Dark Eldar army.  Each Dragon was melded into a vehicle, so the larger ones were Ravagers the smaller ones Venoms or Raiders.


In my view, if you go ALL OUT, why use the old infantry? 
At least Don King hair wasn't to be seen!


 Green dragon melded with some big Eldar gun.


Blood Angels Drop-pod force.


Not sure how they were painted, but the faded hex patterns on these Eldar vehicles are cool-looking


Tough to tell, but the gems and face plates were done up to be gloss black. 


Nurgle


Iron Warriors.  Not sure why the yellow Raptors are there....


Old school Space Wolves


Eldar again.  Can't believe all the old jetbikes, they are from the mid 90s


Ork Nobz list, all in battlewagons


Huge Frostgrave table.  From what I saw, Frostgrave is like SAGA but more like D&D dungeon running game.   The table certainly was incredible looking!


Lich Dragon guarding the treasure.


 Bear and warrior statues amongst the ruins


Frozen ship on the docks.  For some reason, there is a massive skeletal hand holding up a ruined tower like a torch.. and the tower now has demonic eyes. Its like the cover of a death-metal album!  Sadly I did not see the game in action, as it took place while we were in the Flames tournament. 
I will have more pics of the Historical stuff in a later post!

  1. Epic is starting to grow on me for some reason. Entire massive armys that is easily transported may be why. Great photos of cool stuff. Looking forward to the Historical stuff.

    Over 2grand$ CDN on a toy!! Sheeesh! That's taking it way too far I think.
    Cheers

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:
