Tonight Kent and I had our first game of Bolt Action. Two similar 600pt forces.
The British had a regular platoon:
Lieutenant + NO,
3x sections: SMG, LMG, 8x men
1x recce carrier
Regular Japanese Platoon
2x sections: SMG NCO, LMG, 10x men
Vet Jungle fighters: SMG NCO, LMG, 8 men
1x Juku MMG
We pretty much made things up as went went. In FoW terms this was a free or all. The Japanese were defending a jungle hut and the British stumbled into their defensive works- the jungle fighters were in ambush- which we ran as a FoW style ambush- yikes!
A British section advances towards a Burmese village.
In the end it was a bloody draw (4 losses a piece). I liked the pinning mechanism (even if the Japanese could shrug off pins to assault). - the order dice was also a lot of fun and (like Impetvs) when to activate things quickly became important. Overall, the game ran smoothly and was lots of fun.
Will definitely play some more...
