Hungarians! vs USA, TEAM YANKEE, 75 points, No Retreat



That's Right, Hungarians!   Obviously, there is no list out for them, but since the Warsaw Pact used Soviet stuff, why not break from the norm and go with a minor Soviet power.   Brett is using his Hungarians as Soviets for now (and likely VA book soon)  Let's take a look, No Retreat, 75 points vs Tristan's US Tank list, Desert-themed Texas National Guard. Both armies painted by the talented Scott 'Obsidian23' Roach

Tank HQ, 2 x Tank units, 2 ZSU-23s, 2 Hinds, and a short Motor Rifle Coy in BMP-2s with SA-14 team.   The rotor blades are indeed painted with the hungarian stripes.. historical (at airshows!)




 US Tanks, 2 units of M1's, 4 VADS, 2 Cobras and a mech platoon.

After bidding, Tris's US defend.   He puts mech (above pic) defending one objective, minefields near the road, and the HQ on the other objective.  1 tank unit in Ambush

Brett used his Hinds to limit the ambush after Dashing his whole force up. The ambush doesn't get good position, and 'only' kill 2 T-72s

Mech M113s take pot-shots, but can't firepower through to drop a Hind.

T72s wipe out first M1 unit, and now face down the second from reserves..

..while the Cobras fail to Blitz onto the table, so 'only' 3 Gatling shots per on the Hinds.

Only 4 T-72s remain.. not enough left to push that objective now that the Reserves come in.

VADS come in, and smash the Hinds.. 4-3 win for the defending US, though it was dicey (a passed M1 platoon test on turn 2..)

During the Cold War, Hungarian forces had the red star with the green roundel in the middle, like on this BMP-1.   Not sure if that tiny berm would count as short terrain though!

As always, here is the video Battle Report on this battle.  Enjoy!

  3. @ Matt Varnish - Great battle report! Love watching the post game wrap up and discussion. Would Frogfoots have done better than the Hinds? Also, I got a huge kick out of Ca$h's Texas National Guard they look awesome! I can't wait to get a game in with you guys.

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:
