Been a while - partly because accessing blogger on my new work laptop is trickier, and partly because...well, I've actually been gaming rather than just blogging about it!
Here's game one - against a newbie, helping him to prepare for Mattenbury's start-up escalation league at my new FLGS 'Dark Star'. He's a seasoned gamer, so Bolt Action came easily to him, and he gave me a run for my money.
I bought along my Desert Sikhs, knowing that he had a nascent Late-War German Veteran force. It was close, but I just pipped it in the end. Still, he enjoyed it enough to come back for more!
|Those plucky Desert 'Brits' again...|
|...and ze Germans.|
|Deployment, my left flank|
|My Humber moves up and gets blatted by the Sdk.Fz 251/10. Damn,|
|The Germans advance on my left whilst I storm up the right and |
fight through. Luckily, some defensive fire turned up just in time
to halt the advancing foe. Phew!
|In the centre, my Crusader just embarrasses itself by getting|
beaten up by a 251/10-cum-Stummel-cum-Panzerfaust combo.
It weathers it all, but is immobilised and can't hit for toffee.
|In the end, it was bravely fought, but the marauding Sikh|
1 Section swung it my way.
Now, let's see if I can cue up a couple more of these whilst I've got a lazy evening of babysitting ahead of me...
