Boltaction from warlord games
This was our first game of Bolt action, we had to flick into the book a few times but it can be expected playing a new game for the first time. we played a 1000 point game.
waffen ss veteren . Against regular Brittish troops with a veteran Brittish para squad.
Here is a pic of the battle field.
Both sides started the game by rushing forward to the village in the centre as fasy has they could move. AT this point who got the orders was not a problem. It would be the next turns that counted when the two armys where closer.
at this point. But it was early days. At this point the stug swung a right to try to flank the cromwell.
At the top of the road the cromwell opens up its turret machine gun only getting a pin on the german squad that had just left the half track.
sneaky sneaky the german stug supported by a sqaud move up the right. I really liked the way pin markers work in this game. the most a unit had on them at one time was 4 and they managed to rally and remove all 4 in one go. The order system is great keeps you on your toes and thinking all the time
makes for fun tense games.
In true grit and brittish spirit they try to assult the waffen ss but fall short. The waffen ss squad open up. The stg 44, 2 attacks is deadly.
It was at this point we called it a draw, i had nothing that could touch his cromwell.one panzetfaust had been wasted. and the othe guy killed. I had not taken Anti tank grenades so thats some thing for next time. My sons 6 pounder did nothing, lack of objective's gave it nothing to defend. All 3 brittish squads had been wiped out, plus the HQ and HMG.
A very good game lots of fun and the rules are very well thought out and easy to follow, but give lots of tactical play. nice one warlord.
