Bolt Action Road to Victory: A Beginner View

Posted on June 19th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Hey everyone! Seamus here with another community article for your reading enjoyment. Today’s article is from a newcomer to Bolt Action who took the bold step of using the Road To Victory campaign rules for his first foray into the game. One of the best parts of this system is that it really shakes up the normal run of rulebook missions and cookie-cutter army lists by using dice rolls on tables to drive which units you can add to your force. Another great strength of the system is that you or your opponent may end up with a really strong unit, which then means you’ll both have to be on top of your game to deal with less balanced forces. So, without further ado, I present to you a newcomer’s experience on The Road to Victory.
