Dave has picked up some Japanese for Bolt Action so he and Kent used them vs my 14th Army British.Today I painted up a sniper team to use against them and was feeling reasonably confident going into the game. We decided on a refight our last battle (point defence) this time with the British as defending.
1st Liuetentant and sergeant
3x rifle sections
1x Ghurka section (Vets)
1x Vickers MMG
1x recce carrier.
Kent and Dave ran:
HQ + sergeant
2x 11man rifle sections
1x Chi ha tank
I put my Gurkhas and carrier in reserve while the Japanese deployed their entire force.
Turn 1, the Japanese move onto the table. The preliminary bombardment killed a couple of my teams and several sections were pinned.
Turn 2. The Japanese advanced through the jungle. My FOO calls in a bombardment on the tank.
One thing we are missing is some foxhole rules, I think we'll use FoW style dug in status for defenders and count them as in hard cover to see if that helds somewhat... and bring back the Stuart!
