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.
Great to see you back Craig! Very nice looking game!ReplyDelete
Great to have you back Craig, the internet is not the same with out you.ReplyDelete
Welcome back! Sometimes a break is just what you need :-)ReplyDelete
Great looking game.ReplyDelete
Thanks guys. Now, I need to get off my butt and paint up my 4th kiwi section, I never feel happy running only 3 sections- and my cunning plan of running them as vets didn't work either.ReplyDelete
Great looking game. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Let me know how Hail Caesar goes, super keen to run ancients some time (mine are all on the 8cm fronts). I have an Eastern themed force (Parthians, Palmyra) and Romans all painted up and I'll be exited to get then out of the box if we can arrange something :-)ReplyDelete
I also have Macedonians still in boxes and my crusaders are half finished.
