Cold Wars 2017 Walk-about and picture dump.

Tris and Matt trying to figure out how to not get crushed by my Purple Empire in 'Shogun'

Here is my walk-around pics of Saturday Cold Wars 2017.   Video at the bottom that gives probably a better description.  Enjoy.

Kickass Civil War table

Check your Six Pacific

Biggest table of the Con.  Probably thousands of models, all 28mm.

Ancients tournament.  Aztecs facing Trebuchets..

Matty played  this Vietnam-era Check your Six games.  I was rooting for the MiGs :)

A-4Ns vs MiG-17s

Banking flight stands.. brilliant.

1/285 scale Moderns, Swedes vs Russkies.

Swedish tanks

Superb Infinity table.

Looks great, but too many charts for me.. so no Infinity for me :)

'Desperadoes' table.. Billiards table!

You can just hear the old-time piano :)

Love the outhouse right of pic haha.

Hope you enjoy, here is the vid:


  1. Too many charts in Infinity? What are you talking about... (thinks about the hacking rules) All right, I see your point.

    Thanks for sharing these images. Wish I was there.

    1. Yup, even if you look'll see someone's head buried in the book looking something up. Great models, love the reactive system but don't like playing the game if that makes sense.

      We had an awesome time down there and a few events didn't run, either because the weather kept people from going (weather was A+) or the organizer got sick (Frostgrave mainly....)

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:
