Bolt Action Battle Report: US Army vs Japanese

 

Defending

I’m getting lots of Bolt Action games lately!  I was able to catch one at Misty Mountain Games this Tuesday night against Aaron.  It is my second solo game against Japanese and also my second with this list with some new toys.  There is also a big order dice discrepancy in this game.  We are playing Demolition in what is a fairly bloody game.

High Elves vs. Chaos

2015-08-03 19.15.06Found myself tonight, a day after Gen Con, with an itch to play some Warhammer: Age of Sigmar. It was really a last minute decision as work and life really have had me busy, but the stars aligned and I was able to get out the door and to Pegasus Games with the Warhammer: Age of Sigmar starter box and the hardcover book.

When I got there, one of the local players, Fred, was happy to play me with his high elves. We didn’t agree on anything too fancy. I was really limited to what models I had in the starter box and so we ad-hoc’ed a couple of lists together, largely based on wounds and after some discussion picked the scenario Breakthrough. After a roll off, the high elves began to launch their assault. (more…)


End Times Campaign Mega Battle

Table after turn 1

We have talked about our end times campaign we had been playing in quite a few of our previous episodes.  After returning from Germany here is the over due battle report for the mega battle to end the campaign.  This is largely my perspective of the battle I fought but I got some of the major things from through out the table as well.  The theme of this game is a small section of the final battle for the old world where a portion of order allies assault a chaos legion lead by Archaon and try to free captured Teclis.

This post also includes a small gallery of Eric/Stonemonk’s Nagash that was used in this battle.  The model looks great already but Eric still plans more on him.  You should be seeing more of him as well as the rest of Eric’s undead coming soon.

BABR: Defense of Stalingrad

So, this last Thursday night at Misty Mountain games Phil, one of the local Bolt Action players, and myself got together to do a street fight game set in Stalingrad for Warlord Games Bolt Action game. Phil brought 1000 points of Germans and, well, I thought I brought 1000 points of Soviet Union troops….more on that later.

Phil’s force (from memory)
Stalingrad force selector or something close to it from the Armies of Germany book

  • 2nd Lt with SMG and a soldier with rifle
  • Forward Artillery Observer
  • 10 German Heer with lmg (I think)
  • 10 German Pioneers, LMG, some smgs I think
  • 10 German Pioneers, Flame Thrower and 5ish SMG’s
  • Light Howitzer
  • Medium Mortar
  • 2 MG42 teams (MMG teams)
  • 1 Sniper
  • Plus or minus some other stuff

My Soviet Army I am playing currently features everything I own that is painted and built. We did agree that for story purposes I should use the Stalingrad force selector, but only benefited from the free unit option to be fanatic.

  • 1st Lt with soldier inexperienced, both with SMG’s
  • Commissar with soldier, both with SMG’s
  • Forward Air Observer with soldier, both with SMG’s
  • 8 man gaurd unit, 2 SMG’s (forgot they were in the list, never fielded them)
  • 8 man SMG unit, regular
  • 12 man rifleman squad (free unit)
  • 8 man Veteran Gaurd unit with tough fighter
  • T-34 Tank
  • 122mm Medium Howitzer
  • Medium Mortar
  • 3 man Tank Hunter team, 2 models with SMGs, 1 model with captured Panzerfaust
  • Veteran Sniper team
  • Veteran Flamethrower team with ROKS2
  • Anti Tank Rifle
