Yep, this happened.  After seeing Luke have so much fun with Stuarts, I had to get them painted!  10 of these were very generously given to me by my buddy and fellow WWPDer Pete.

  Thanks Pete!

Comrades... it has begun

I've used the Dedov model to be my company commander. Him combined with 20 Plastic Soldier Company T-34s will give me 21 T-34 76s or 85s to cover all my basic soviet armor needs!

Game Review: Wrath of Ashardalon

Gues Post by Joe Mezz

Greetings troops,

This evening I was able to meet with Steve and Dirty Jon of the WWPD cast; along with wives Lydia and Stephanie to get some game time in with D&D's Wrath of Ashardalon.

Wrath of Ashardalon is a board game produced by Wizards of the Coast. It was released in February of 2011. The game contains 42 plastic heroes and monsters, 13 dungeon tiles, 200 encounter and treasure cards, rulebook, scenario book and a 20 sided die.

The figures are molded in different colors. The heroes are molded in a dark blue while monsters and bosses are either red or gray. I will say that the molds are clean and look great. They look good unpainted and will be excellent looking on the game board once painted.

The dungeon tiles are of heavy cardboard and well made to last during numerous game plays. You have your various long hallways, t sections and corners. The set also has 5 (correct number may be 4 or 6 as well) chamber tiles for the final boss or event for the adventures to find.

Encounter cards produce nasty little events for either one or all in the party depending on locations or other bonuses or effects. It adds a sense of "What else can happen" during the adventure. It ranges from traps, magic or unseen attacks that can take place. Treasure cards are received by the adventure whom takes out a monster. It can range from protective items, bonuses on attacks or armor class or movement bonuses. Some are able to be used all game while other treasures must be discarded after use.

The rules are fairly simple and one can grasp the basics after a couple of rounds. There is also a scenario book to allow for campaigns of your brave party or single run missions.

I was able to get two games in one sitting. The first was 5 people playing and total game time was approximately 2 hours. Steve and I played another game with 2 characters and ran a game in just short of 1 hour.

I am sure you will see some AARs out of this board game in the future. The tiles allow for you to use D&D minis or other after market minis with no issues. The replay value is high. I give this game 4.5 treasure cards out of 5 !

Be safe .... Keep the Paint flowing and the Dice rolling ....

Early War Grenadiers

This is a unit of Germans I just finished.  I really wanted them to be very flexible so I did 9x Rifle/MG teams (which I will happily use interchangably as rifle and MG teams as well), 1 command stand, a light mortar, and an AT Rifle.  With that these guys can represent any core infantry platoon from early war on into early/mid east front.  As I finish out my "grey" germans, I will be able to field full forces in all 3 major theaters across all eras!  wooo!

I realize the helmet decals were phased out pretty quickly- consider them artistic license

WWPD News From the Front Episode 19

"Live from... the car!"

Steven and Sean record in the car to and from the Flames of War tournament "Showcase Showdown" in Media PA. This episode is primarily about their experience at this tournament, and is fairly unstructured. There is a brief review of the board game Wrath of Ashardalon, though a full review will be forthcoming. Be warned: the audio quality is not up to our usual standard, and the occasional foul language was loosed upon the world.

Unofficial Firestorm Market Garden Errata

Andrew Malcolm was frustrated with the lack of errata for Firestorm Market Garden, and so his game group came together and wrote an unofficial one. You can download that file from us by following this link: unofficial errata.

Thanks Andrew!

For those of you concerned that World of Tanks has completely consumed the WWPD crew- your concerns aren't without merit! But I forced myself to sit down yesterday and get some painting done. This weekend Sean and I will be heading up to PA to fight in the Showcase Showdown. I'm excited to try my proposed French nationals list out, although... they are French, so I'm glad I get this practice run with them!

HG Panzers crush US 3rd ID in Fighting Withdrawal

Jon and I played my first game on his WIP Arnhem board last night. The mission was fighting withdrawal with me on defense. He took his Herman G. Panzer Division and I took my 3rd ID boys. The pictures are fairly self explanatory:
Jon loaded up his left flank, raced across the hill, and fairly easily punched through my lines. At the top of turn 4 I conceded- I had little hope of keeping the objective out of his hands, and he had clearly delivered a sound beating!

  • 4x Panzer III M
  • 4x Panzer III M
  • 4x STUG IV
