A storm was gathering above the planet Gerexus, making it hard to differentiate friend from foe. Many parties had previously fought over the bountiful rewards on offer, with few being able to claim absolute victory. As the walls of reality weakened, ar…

1945 LW FOW Tournament – Feb 18th "The Final Hour" – Kirwan’s Game Store

Posted on March 23rd, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

The end of V3 is fast approaching, as many regular readers of this blog are aware.  And with it comes a possible end to many lists and models we held dear.  In an effort to say our final goodbyes to a version of the rules many of us loved dearly over the past 1/2 a decade, Chris Johnson (my arch enemy) helped put together a tournament up at Kirwan’s Game Store. 1945pts LW, 3 rounds, beginning at 11am.

Below – Chris Johnson and a raffled off German Panzer Army for EW.  Everyone started with one ticket, but each loss earned you another ticket. (very good idea)

My List: I debated a lot about what to bring.  I decided on something I could never get to work.  I had only played them once, at 1425 pts and they were the worst list I ever brought to a tournament.  I should have known better at the time, but there it is.  What is over pointed like crazy? What is a fast tank? What has the stink of the oddly non-synergistic British rules about them… guessed it.  Comets.

My List – Nachtjager
British Motor Company (which for some reason is an Infantry company)
HQ – 2 white scout cars with cmd and 2ic
1 – Motor Platoon (cmd MG team + 3 MG teams w/ piat and lt mortar) (6 stands)
2 – Motor Platoon (full)
3 – required scout platoon (3 UC’s)
4 – Wasp platoon
5 – AT guns 6pdrs
6 – mortar platoon
7 – 4 comets
8 – 4 comets

for a grand total of 1945 pts.

First Round – Joey Laderoute from Blackmoon Games in Lebanon NH

I missed the chance to play him last tournament so I was glad I got a shot this time around.  He brought American Tanks, Jumbos and Easy 8s, and an assortment of other trained armor. He reasoned that in V4, Easy 8s were dead, and Jumbos wouldn’t be nearly as good. He attacked, since I was an infantry company.

North American Yeam Yankee Nationals; 14 July 2017

Posted on March 15th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

With Brian Sullivan
First of all, let me fill you in on some big news; WWPD and Battlefront will be hosting the first ever Team Yankee North American Nationals on 14 July 2017! The event will take place during Historicon 2017 in Fredericksburg Virginia. So, this post serves as “save the date” for all of you that have been looking forward for a huge Team Yankee event and we will be posting a series of “Tournament Organizer” articles to keep you informed over the next few months.
We will be working with Brian Sullivan, who will be the POC from the Battlefront side of the house and I will be the POC from WWPD.
Right now, we have so many details to work out;
Points totals? Will 100 be too much? Is 80 the sweet spot?
Scoring? Do we use an alternative scoring system to have a definitive winner in 3 rounds?
Prize support? Well with Luke doing this I am sure it will be something great!
So, since we have more questions than answers right now please hold off any you have until we have firmed things up. Until we can get the event into the PEL for Historicon we will not be taking any sign-ups, so stay tuned to and we will drop more info as it becomes available.
We want to make this the biggest and best Team Yankee event ever! So come join us for “Fulda in Fredericksburg 2017!”

The Portal’s World at War Tournament – December 10th 2016

Posted on February 24th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

So I begin by apologizing to Chris Kadish and My friend Karl, as well as the folks over at CT Valley Gamers for not getting this typed up sooner.  My laptop died a horrible death right after this tournament and then I waited for its replacement to arrive well into the new year.  After that, I had to chaperone 20 kids into NYC for a 4 day field trip….bottom line, this AAR dropped down on my list of priorities.  Moving forward however, I expect I will be a lot faster with these reports.  Since my new computer doesn’t randomly shut down and erase all I was working on.

Without Further ado….
The Portal in Manchester CT, has played host to a few FOW tournaments over the course of the past year.  and I’ve been lucky enough to attend two of them.  Chris Kadish, TO organizer and man about town, helped put this one together.  A doubles tournament with 2000 pts per team, and some restrictions on combinations. (no fortified companies for example) drew in quite a few teams.  Due to some friction over criteria for lists, a few teams from up North had to drop (when their ride decided against going.)  But we still wound up with 6 teams, and 12 players, which was more than enough to have fun moving our toys around the table.
Below, Chris, wondering why I am taking this picture.

Below: Some photos of the tournament area and some of the folks setting up.
