FFI (Forces Françaises de l’Intérieur) Char B1 for Bolt Action

After thinking about Bolt Action for a while and reflecting on the rules I finally decided on which force I was going to build. My regular opponent Simon was going Italian, so I actually had quite a wide choice of potential foes, from Early War French, British Desert Rats, Anzio which would mean regular British Infantry and US forces, Russians and even Germans towards the end of the war. I did initially think about Greek, they used regular British equipment so would be quite easy to model. I did consider Late War Germans, so I could get a JagdTiger in 28mm…. but in the end I decided that I would go totally irregular and go with Partisans, so just infantry, or maybe a car or truck or two. I have a few civilian vehicles, a Citroen Civilian 1000kg Dropside Truck. Citroen Civilian 1000kg Dropside Truck And the slightly bigger truck, the Citroen Civilian 4,500kg Truck with Canopy.

How to lose a beer. Jak stracić piwo.

Last Thursday we had another Rebels and Patriots game. Most of the players complain about statistics for Indians with these rules and especially when they were given to me (what not everyone knows is that, for about 10 years, back in my home country, I was doing the Native American Reenactment). During our last game, we decided that the next one I will play against Indians and therefore we had our game.W ostatni czwartek mieliśmy kolejne spotkanie z zasadami Rebels and Patriots. Większość graczy narzekała na zbyt mocnych Indian w tych zasadach a jeszcze bardziej, gdy byli oni w moich rękach (większość nie wie, że przez 10 lat, gdy mieszkałem jeszcze w mojej Ojczyźnie, zajmowałem się odtwórstwem historycznym Rdzennych Mieszkańców Ameryki). Podczas naszej poprzedniej gry ustaliliśmy, że to ja będę grał przeciw Indianom i stąd nasza gra.SCENARIO/SCENARIUSZ: Mike EvansUMPIRING/PROWADZENIE GRY: Mike EvansSCENERY/SCENERIA: Mike Evans, Michael Schneider, SESWCFIGURES & MODELS/FIGURKI I M

28mm WW2 French Army

Here's a recently completed WW2 French army for Bolt Action. Well, part of the army. It is enough for the customer to get started with some games while I finish off the rest.It contains the core of the infantry with enough support options and HQ to at least hit 1000 points.More will follow, in addition to more WW2 French armies. Seems they are popular at the moment.

THE GREAT GAME 2019 WATERLOO REPLAYED.

Hi! Today first photo relation from the biggest historical wargame ever, with more than 22 000 figures and more than 100 players from over the world. That is happening in Glasgow. It will be continued tomorrow as well, so if you are in Glasgow, jump into Kelvin Gallery and experience it by yourselves. I play the role of one of the umpires and under my supervision is battlefield from the west of Papelote Farm up to halfway to Le Haye Sainte Farm. So far French managed to push British of their ridge and prepare to break their lines. It is getting very interesting. I'm very curious about how it's going to finish. On the other parts of the battlefield, we have some first Prussian units arrived and I think that French push out British of the Hougoumont, so everything can happen. Below you have some pictures from the first day.Witam! Dzis pierwsza fotorelacja z największej, dotychczas rozegranej gry, z użyciem ponad 22 000 figurek i przy udziale ponad 100 graczy z całego świata. To się odbywa w Glasgow. Będzie kont

Leipzig 1813, pt. 3. Lipsk 1813, cz. 3.

Hi! Today my third part of our big Leipzig 1813 game. Before I will go to it, I owe you some emedations. First is that we were replaying the southern part of the battle with the real troops and not as I wrote in 1st part loosely based. Bill, who prepared the scenario and layout of the table chose the 16th of October 1813, the first day of the battle. In our game we used 4 700 figures and 162 guns with about 900 being still in reserves. All game was played on four 12'x6' tables with 5' gaps. The tables did not interact, except that units within 2' of the respective table edges, where able to move between tables.Witam! Dzisiaj trzecia część naszej dużej gry Lipsk 1813. Zanim jednak przejdę do tego kilka słów sprostowania wcześniejszych relacji. Po pierwsze rozgrywaliśmy południową część bitwy z użyciem właściwych sił, a nie jak napisałem w pierwszej części relacji, luźno opartych. Bill, który przygotował scenariusz i plan gry wybrał dzień 16 października 1813, czyli pierwszy dzień bitwy dla naszej gry. W niej u

Leipzig 1813, pt.1. Lipsk 1813, cz. 1.

Hi! This is my first try to put the game raport live on my blog. Our today and tomorrow game with a group AB1 is loosely based on original battle. We chose the southern part of this biggest battle of Napoleonic period, but as I said it is loosely based and you can met forces not presented on this side of the original battle. I'm expecting 12 players, divided on two sides. I together with my Poles will be defending the honour of the Emperor. For the game we will be using Black Powder rules.Witajcie! To jest moja pierwsza próba prowadzenia relacji z gry, live na blogu. Nasza dzisiejsza i jutrzejsza gra grupy AB1, jest luźno oparta na wydarzeniach oryginalnej bitwy. Na naszą rozgrywkę wybraliśmy południowy teatr działań tej największej bitwy czasów napoleońskich, ale tak jak powiedziałem jest ona luźno oparta na prawdziwych wydarzeniach i możecie spodziewać się oddziałów tam nieobecnych. Spodziewam się 12 graczy, podzielonych na dwie części. Ja razem z moimi Polakami będę bronił honoru Cesarza. do gry będziemy u
