So tonight we had a game of Bolt Action, my Kiwis vs his Germans, somewhere in Italy.
NZ Platoon (Vets)
3x 8 man sections (with LMGs)
Kent ran with: his SS
2x SS sections
1x vet infantry section
1x 81mm mortar
1x 76mm infantry gun
1x 222 AC
We rolled up Hold until Relieved. The building became the objective Kent defended it with a sniper, MMG team and SS section.
An infantry section crosses the field, losing two men to the 222 armoured car.
Result- a major German victory. In the last two turns my troops melted away under the German fire, I manged to knock out the MMG and mortar along with the 222 armoured car but was left with only my staghound and 6pdr!
As usual the battle see-sawed but in the end the Germans overwhelmed the kiwis. My biggest mistake was not concentrating my forces and so being taken out piecemeal and resulted in a very comprehensive victory.
A good game and fun to be rolling dice again. We hope to try Kent's Carthaginians using Hail Ceasar.
