Andy was busy last evening and couldn't make the game, so myself and Glenn decided to have another run out with Bolt Action.
I had seen a few games recently on the BA Facebook page and thought we could have a go at something similar.
With the thought of the Para's at Pegasus Bridge in mind, I set the table and came up with a typical scenario.
Take and Hold the Bridge, simple's.
The Bridge was fairly well defended with two MMG's covering the Bridge and a medium mortar providing support.
The Germans had the chance of re-enforcements and the chance to Blow the bridge if things went a bit tit's up.
Things never go according to plan.
|All is peaceful as the unaware Germans go about their daily routine|
|The Bridge is well defended if an attack should happen.|
|Two Sentries go about their usual mundane tasks.|
One heads out from the farm as another heads towards him from the
|The Para's arrive and advance, undetected on the bridge.|
German sentries fail to spot and movement as the Para's
get in to position.
|Still oblivious to the presence of the enemy, the lone sentry goes his way.|
It is now Dawn , the light is still dim as the morning mist starts to lift.
The sentry from the farm fails to spot a squad of Para's cross the road
ahead of him.
|A flank charge from the Glider Para's screams into the Bridge defences.|
The Mortar team is taken out silently.
The MMG team in the next trench fail to spot them again.
The Para's sneak in to position to assault the Bridge.
A Great win for Glenn with the British Para's.
Good use of stealth and fast assaults, Oh!, and the Partizans, deffo won him the game.
The Germans just could not get the message through to blow the damn bridge.
Although it did take Glenn ages to disarm the damn explosives (and didn't I know it)
This was our second outing with "Bolt Action".
As a Squad based game, it works great.
It is a lot of fun to play, even though we got it wrong on a few occasions, we are still learning.
Big Thanks to Glenn for playing in the spirit of the game and been very British (up the Ox and Bucks)
