Kent, Dave and Nigel came round last night for a game of Bolt Action. Kent’s been really busy lately so it was great to see him again. Neither Dave or Nigel had played BA before but were seen to give it a go and I must say it played really, really well.
We had 80tp each, and the game was set in Malaya in 1942 (so I could sue my Perry Desert rates)
Nigel and I ran a British Rifle force:
HQ + NCO
4x sections with LMGs
1x Vickers MMG
1x 3” mortar
1x Recce Carrier
Kent and Dave ran the Japanese:
HQ + NCO
2x sections with LMGs
1x jungle fighters section + LMG
1x ni mortar
1x 37mm AT gun
1x Chi Ha tank
To keep things simple we played Maximum Attrition. Nigel and I put two sections and our carrier into reserve.
The British advance begins. 3" mortar and 6pdr are deployed to defend the flank while a squad advances in the centre.
A great game, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Luck swung one way then another but the game went down to wire. I am looking forward to the next one.
