Tonight Stephen, Simon and Kent popped round for the my much anticipated game of Bolt Action, once again the action occurred somewhere in Burma. Each force was upgraded to 800pts. I had a cunning plan, adding a platoon of veteran Ghurkas to try to deal with those accursed veteran jungle fighters...The Ghurka war cry was "Aayo Gurkhali" or "here come the Ghurkas". Time to see to see how the brave Nepalese troops would fare on the table top.
Simon and I fielded:
1st lt + NCO
2x regular sections ( incl SMG &LMG)
1x Vet ghurkas (SMG, LMG)
1x recce carrier
1x M3 Stuart
1x 3" mortar
1x Vickers MMG
The Japanese fielded:
Offier + SMG NCO
2x Sections with 12 infantry (icl light mortars)
10x jungle fighers (vets)
1x Chi Ha tank
1x Juku MMG
Visibility: We limited visibility to 6" in jungle. It is suppose to be impenetrable after all.
We ran a demolition mission adding a objective one each side (worth 2 VPs). We chose to keep our Stuart in reserve and use our 2nd regular infantry section to outflank the enemy. Kent chose to put everything on table.
Everything is ready for the game.
Changes to the army?
Another section of infantry. I still don't feel I have enough go forward so will try a extra section next game.
