Bolt Action Modern Game - US versus Russians

This past weekend I headed over to my buddy Dan Kerricks house to play a game of Bolt Action modern.  We incorporated most of the new rules from v2.0 of Bolt Action and played it out.

Unfortunately the weather was very cold last weekend here and I think it infected our dice rolls ... I didn't manage to knock out a single vehicle ... nor did Roy who was playing opposite of me!  I played the Russians advancing through the field while Dan took the other half of the Russians up through the town.  Roy was opposite me with US and Matt ran the US troops on the town side.

We just played a simple meeting engagement ... the US was under strength for the battle ... but the dice rolls were so cold all around that it really didn't matter.

Dan's Russians in the town managed to do some damage ... enough to call it a minor victory for the Russians ... but it was a draw in my opinion.  Might as well have been using foam pool noodles to fight each other ....

Anyways ... I took some pictures with my phone ... they are below :-)

    1. That too, get them some coffee, hot chow and a USO show and things should get better.
      Russians only need more vodka

    2. Lol, I would have loved a USO show during the game ... there was an incompetent neighbour attempting to mow his lawn with a lawn mower that died after about 2-3 seconds of being on. Took him 2 hours to mow a tiny patch of yard. Didn't once attempt to check anything on the mower!
