Hi


I just started the "What a tanker" rules from Too fat Lardie. I Also found that Black Op makes Lazer cut Dashboards. Here is a link to the dashboards

This looks like a very cool product. I would really be interested in a dashboard where you can slide a marker or some sort, across when you have acquied target, aim, reload, button and so forth. This would be super useful especially when you dashboard gets bumped and your markers get moved.

Thanks for sharing.

Yep. A great idea. I wish the Armor and Strike numbers were read vertically instead of horizontally/radially though.

Sounds like the old solo board game "Patton's Best" (Victory Games).

"Open Fire" Victory Games.

Notice it mentions it comes un-assembled and unpainted. May we assume all the lettering is some sort of decal?

I doubt it – more likely laser-etched. Tell you when mine arrive!
I'm sure you could put labels on the dial so the numbers are indeed vertical. If you feel it needs it.

Ah! Makes sense. Etched would make it easy enough to paint up. And yes, let us know!

The whole system interests me and this sounds like a nice play aide.

They look nice but a bit of an outlay if you want to run a big game with 6-8 players. I dl and laminated one from the TFL forum. Maybe I'll buy several at a time. WAT is a blast to play so maybe I'll invest. Having a dashboard you can pick up and move around would be useful.

I have mine, lettering is laser etched. They have a multi purchase offer on for 8 boards for £42.00 GBP

Just prepared my set of these boards. I did put labels over the dials so that the numbers are a bit clearer and on the same orientation as the rest of the data. Yes it was an outlay, but I'm pleased with them.
