Dice Devils Fall Fubar 2012

This was the second weekend in a row that I was able to play in a tournament.  It was 1625 MW and was put on by the Dice Devils in Ottawa.  The venue was the Barrhaven Legion and it was 3 rounds starting at 1 pm and going until 10.  The Legion was a great venue with all kinds of food close by, well lite with air conditioning and a full service bar.  I will post all the AARs once I have posted all the AARs from last weekend.  In the mean time here are the armies that I was able to take pictures of.

My German Pioneers (Best Axis General, 2nd overall)

It took some practice but I'm happy with the hand painted numbers and Iron Crosses

Louie's Armoured Rifles (Best Allied General, 3rd overall)

Lothlann's Soviets

Ca$h's Germans (Best Overall)

RKelly's Canadians (Best Painted)

Matt Varnishes British

ThunderST's Germans

Stef's Germans

PhantomRescues Australians

OMG Doubles Armies and Tables

This last weekend I was lucky enough to play in the OMG Doubles tournament with Matt Varnish from the Dice Devils.  I have three AARs coming but here are a bunch of pictures of the tables and armies for you while I work on the AARs.

Here are the tables:

Desert Airfield

 Ruined City

 Key Crossing site

 Desert Oasis

Small French Town

Here are the Armies:

 Matt Varnish and my Germans

PhantomRescue and Digari's Germans

 Ca$h and Pripyat's Germans

Lugg's and Louie's Germans

There were 2 British teams and a US team that I didn't get a chance to take pictures of so it wasn't all Germans but there was more than their fair share.

Panzer Pioneers vs Hell's Highway Shermans in Fighting Withdrawal

Nobody messes with the 2IC and his Pioneers, nobody.....
This battle was fought at Perkins Hobby House in Petawawa at 1650 LW in preparation for the upcoming tournament. Louie was playing his Hells Highway Tanks against my Panzer Pioneers backed up by Panthers. We rolled up Fighting Withdrawal and I would be defending, with mines and dig in Pioneers, so Louie was going to have his work cut out for him.
