Bolt action Road to Berlin - PICS HEAVY!

Heya,Last weekend I had great pleasure to participate in local Bolt Action gaming event, organized by Tricity community (you check their webpage and facebook sites): Road to Berlin.All in all these were 2 days of gaming: there were planned 5 battles for each player, each from different front / war theater.But it gets better: there were 3 different scenarios in each of the fronts, all prepared especially for this event so whole thing was also big testing ground.Initially I wanted to write as much as possible about everything, but there's just too much of it!So just know that it was ton of fun, lots of gaming and friendly players around, no unhealthy competitive atmosphere and beautiful, damn inspiring, game tables.So feast your eyes!Next post I'm coming with old routine: few pics and more babbling.Overall look on empty tables, Saturday morning:My first game.those sneaky Germans managed to steal enough fuel to win the match. This was lots of fun nevertheless (thanks Zimmer!):Second game.This time I had more luc

1944 to 577

Back from the pub and fortified with steak pie and lasagne we got our troops ready for the third Bolt Action battle. A simple meeting engagement around the Chateau Wartone only this time I took the British and Matt the Germans. We both had four squads along with supports and two tanks, a Cromwell and Sherman V for me and a StuG III and PzIV for the bad guys, remember that poor medic.The terrain due to the size of the well kept Chateau grounds was fairly open, unlike both the previous battles, so we both put down a tank to help control the approaches, the StuG half hidden behind the brasserie wall while my Cromwell settled down on the edge of a small orchard. I was unsure where to make my main attack in this game but halfway through my deployment I decided to make the left flank my main effort although I put the Sherman on the right to watch a road junction while leaving it free to fire into the centre of the battlefield should I wish.Impressive Chateau and grounds.As the game opened I managed to kill off the

Normandy over the Weekend

Mate Matt Smith turned up late on Friday after a horrendous journey on our discredited road network, almost eight hours to do a four and a half hour trip, but enough, Matt was here for the weekend and we had planned three Bolt Action scenarios and then an historical refight of the battle of Deorham from 577AD. The first game was a British paratroop attack on the sleepy German garrison of Warton-sur-Mer, I was the Germans and placed my four squads in buildings surrounding the vital crossroads, I had two veteran squads and two regular along with a sniper, MMG and mortar.Due to their dispersal the Para's attacked piecemeal, however they tried to get a flamethrower into a position to roast my men in the local brasserie but I was aware how deadly these could be and did everything in my power to discourage or kill the team. I was successful and with their support gone the nearby squad could do nothing more than cower behind a wall. Meanwhile Matt made an attack near the large barn and ruined house, I caught one of
