Table Tactics New Product Release



  • Ps: for those interested the Russian units are up on fairplaygames.com

    I restocked my old products and took inventory of the new stuff.

    They didn’t realize they were out of German’s and Italian’s.  That may be because they are working on consignment at this time.


  • Customizer

    I have placed my order for 3 sets of the Russians.  Looking forward to adding them to my Germans, Italians, British, Americans and Japanese sets.

    Hey Jack,
    Just curious.  What gave you the idea to use guns to represent infantry units instead of actual soldiers?



  • I used prints that I believe are the same scale.  I scaled my tanks down uniformly.  Making the smallest tanks the size of the A&A tanks.

    Hmm, that’s odd…!?!  Something must have been very off in the sizing of your originals, then… there’s no way that a Cromwell and a T-34 should be that much bigger than a Panther and yet that close in size to an even bigger Tiger, for instance.

    You made every point i made about 4 pages ago.

    Then be happy I’m agreeing with you, after having a chance to carefully compare the physical products side-by-side for myself, finally!



  • @knp7765:

    Hey Jack,
    Just curious.  What gave you the idea to use guns to represent infantry units instead of actual soldiers?

    I was getting a lot of requests for pieces like Paratroopers or marines.  From my view I figured having a soldiers standing with a different gun would be to hard to tell what he was.  A paratrooper is only a paratrooper when he is floating down.  After that he is just another soldiers.  Kind of the same thing with marines after they land.  So instead of making different types of soldiers I made different types of guns.
    So you can class Thompson machine guns or FG-42’s as paratroopers or just provide them with different attack and defense numbers.



  • This is only connected because money make things.  I just got an offer on the farm.  This will put money in my pocket and allow me to get moving again.  I have the Hungarian & French units on hold at the moment but this will get them back on track.

    I’m also planning on attending Origins to introduce new pieces and our new game.

    The only drawback is that Table Tactics will be operating out of a storage facility instead of my garage.



  • I’m so excited for French units, color matched, and in the sizes we requested - I’m predicting a runaway hit!

    My garage was closer and free.

    New Edition Colors 23
    New World Order 44
    RISK 2042  49
    A&A Accessories 94
    When their gone that is it.  😞



  • So, there is no possibility that you would reprint Cromwell 2026 &/or remould any of the pieces?



  • what’s in the NWO?

    I kept some stuff to put together a few Cromwell games.  When my life settles down and I put some together I will stop here first to let you know.



  • @cminke:

    what’s in the NWO?

    It was designed for the original A&A game.  It is very easy to transition into the game and it plays fast.  The set comes with modern pieces like Jet fighters, attack helicopters, hover craft, tanks and armored personnel carriers.  I have the rules posted on my site  tabletactics.com and you can see the pieces there.  FairPlayGames.com  has them on sale for under $12.00.



  • NWO-Great APCs/F16s!



  • Modern Tanks too!  (M1’s, I think, though I wish the molds had a little more detail on them; nevertheless, they’re a good find, as they’re in A&A colors/scales, unlike any other modern tank pieces I’ve been able to find.)

    Risk 2042 adds in some pretty decent helicopters and more of mostly the same land units, so definitely add that package to round out your modern-AA-variant collection.  I collected a ton of TT’s stuff, back when they cost twice as much, so consider his current prices a real bargain!

    I’ve maintained hopes of him doing his Central Powers set in French blue… that would be a big step forward in making a decent WWI kit possible.  I guess that’s out of the question now?  Do you not have the old molds anymore, TT?

    I still have the old molds.
    Way back I ran the old mold in the Xeno colors and quickly sold off 500 sets of the historic pieces.  Then I was stuck with a bunch of modern units.  Stratamax Games designed the modern Cromwell game and I sold about 72 copies.  Most of the remaining pieces were ground up to run samples of the new stuff.
    I did keep some to make a few more Cromwell games and it looks like I have interest in them.  :lol:



  • Hi All
    I uploaded all the new unit silhouettes for your battle boards on my facebook page.
    They are in png format and should be in 1 to 1 scale.



  • Have a great Thanksgiving!

    I’m sure you have the big screen TV set up at the end of the gaming table so you can watch football and take over the world at the same time.



  • allreddy done! GREAT GAME! EH!



  • any news on them french?



  • Jack,

    Any news on the French?

    That would be a moneymaker, I think.



  • “Table Tactics
    I’m going to release my first complete war game. The only thing left is the cover. Of course I want people to grab it off the shelves.
    What would be your best example of a great board game cover?”

    This was on facebook



  • Hi Guys
    Sorry for not getting back here sooner.  Things are a bit crazy for me right now.  I’m living at my son’s and most of my stuff is in storage.  I’m sleeping in his attic on a twin bed with boxes all around me (wife is on the couch).  I guess right now we are waiting for my father-in-law to have another stroke or die then we will be moving in with my mother-in-law who sometimes doesn’t remember who we are and take care of her.
    On the game front: We are publishing a complete game for release at the Origins convention.  It will give you someplace to use all those oversized tanks.  Then if we have any kind of success with the game we will be pumping out those French and Hungarian units.
    Right now I am trying to find a cheap building to operate out of so that set shop.
    Best Regards, Jack


  • TripleA '12

    Sorry to hear of your troubles, Jack. I hope you find some sense of normality back into your lives soon. Looking forward to the new tanks. Take care for now.



  • Sounds like you’ve got a lot on your plate at the moment. Don’t worry about us here, take care of your stuff at home & hopefully you’ll be back and running soon



  • Just checked www.tabletactics.com … and I saw some interesting stuff  😄
