Spent a wonderful Saturday afternoon with friends playing Bolt Action and having a BBQ.
Some impressions from the our small scenario which had ~800 points on each side – Germans vs. Russians. The Germans defended a little village somewhere in Western Russia 1943 and the Russians tried to cut this German resistance pocket off in order to bleed them out.
The game was a terrible loss for the Germans who got almost completely annihilated in about 5 rounds. Not only were they overwhelmed by the amount of Russian troops, but they also suffered from terrible dice rolls while the Russian player pretty much rolled whatever he needed.
Sharing a few impressions:
|The calm before the storm|
|German units deployed and ready waiting for Ivan|
|Viewpoint from the Russians|
|The Red Army advancing|
|German command post|
|German units under heavy fire from incoming Russians|
|Veteran units protecting the outer wall of the church|
|T34 taking a look at the big cat|
|At the end of the battle|
