Just a quick Bolt Action WW2 AAR.
Recently the tiny COVID restricted band of weary lads got together at Dan's place to play a game in his garage. I packed up my dice and tape measure and went over for a fun day of gaming.
John Lantz has recently finished up his desert WW2 forces and wanted to host a game. This was just a tank duel in the desert - keeping it simple, but very fun. No hard math or thinking much beyond "there're over there, get'em!"
I had a blast - John and I pulled out a victory playing with the 8th army forces.
Before jumping into some pictures - John brought along this super handy and very awesome player aid! A gaming periscope! We used this for all LOS and it worked excellently. I've ordered 4 for my own games! You to can grab one of these puppies right here.
Just look at those juicy targets! My dice actually didn't suck for once so I was able to put lots of holes in those German tanks!
Table setup was easy-peasy. The mat has been rolled up for a while but after about 30 minutes had settled.
Lots of explody tanks on fire. I lost 3 of my 6 crusader tanks. John managed to not loose a single Grant of his 3. It was certainly a change of pace using tanks with light AT ... shells just kept bouncing off the armour.
That's it for today folks!
That looked like a fantastic game and set up - and that periscope brilliant, what a cool addition to the table 😀ReplyDelete
