Being a bit eager to play Bolt action and the game we had arranged to take part in at the club being postponed John and myself dug out some old battered ww2 stuff and did a 500pt game USA v Germans in abattered snowy village it was great fun.
Both sides advanced and tried to get into position the only real actionwas when the US sniper took out one of the Germans MMG crew .
Quite a bit more action but only 1 unlucky GI was taken down butthe pins started piling up .
The blood started flowing 4 Yanks and 2 Germans biting the dust ,pins started to make things harder to do as well.
Lots more firing with 3 dead on both sides ,the germans MMG taking another crew casualty but passing its moral test and causing problems for the nervous GI's.with i unit taking to its heels and leaving their comrades to their fate ,
Lots more firing with very little effect other than 2 german casualties .
The end in sight ,another US squad flees the table and the HQ who had proved very effective was wiped out in aflurry of German LMG fire , one good bout of fire from the Yanks was not enough to save the day .A German Victory .

Last night at the club we played Airways c21 ,a very nice simple air combat game originally designed to use at conventions.Definatley not for those of you that want to simulate how many g's you pull in a dive or how much shrapnel a sindwinder would cause at xxx feet but a really quick fun game with just enough realism for a club game,we had 2 lightnings against 2 mig 21's and the game took about an hour to play to a outcome , nice shiny silver aeroplanes shooting past each other firing very ineffective missiles .Will play again with all the optional rules .
|chaos as all our special manouvers went wrong ??|

A few Brit Infantry Ive done as a test for Bolt Action,late war figures they are Warlord Plastic the decals that came with them I wasnt happy with so bought some from Company B ,they are smaller than the Warlord but easier to get into place and have more detail to them . The figures are very detailed but pigs to put together ,everythings seperate ,arms ,heads helmets weapons ,packs everything but this gives you lots of options possible weapons include thompson or Sten ,Lee Enfields with or Without bayonets or scopes ,Brens ,piats , pistols and 2"Mortors
