All day Bolt Action game

Hi all,

Well just getting round to posting this at last, what with travel delays and other bits of life in the way. Last Sunday at our club day I had an all day game of Bolt Action, kicked off at 11.00am at finished up at about 5.00pm.
I had the Brits and Reg had the Germans, we used the Objective scenario from the rule book;

Germans had 3 objectives and they were well dug in!! They were also hidden so I had no idea where they were!!
We decided that I had un-limited reserves (nice) and would play until 5.00pm (so not finish on the sixth turn). The Brits softened them up with their Preparatory Bombardment (got some nice direct hits!!), the first wave of 5 units got to the edge of the town, but found
heavy resistance from some nasty Germans camped out in the upper floors, by this time however, the Brit mortar was in position and with some nice
dice rolling, managed to take out most of the enemy in the first objective.
Some awful rolling for Reg with his anti-tank weapon (which all game did nothing!!) Attracted the attention of 2 Sherman’s and was swiftly dispatched. The two heavy tanks, with the assistance
of a veterean squad of British Airborne in the opposite building cleared out the second objective.
With the last objective left the Germans fought hard, laying down some accurate and deadly fire on the advancing Vickers, Sniper team and an infantry section. A last-ditch
reenforcement from the Germans of a Half track and a small platoon coming on the  table edge by the objective was not enough to stop the onslaught from the Allies and a surrender
was sought from the Germans.
Great day and a good game, really enjoyed this, fielded lots of troops and heavy armour. I think Reg would have done well to hold on, but the major failing of his anti-tank
weapon was a game turner, I did lose one tank to a Panzerfaust, but not completely.

  1. Looks like a good day at the club. The laser cut houses are very nice and the troopers look well painted. I really like the idea of skirmish games as you can place more terrain and make the table look more like a diorama. In army scale games this sometimes is not really possible, due to restrictive terrain placing rules.
