We are pleased to be able to announce our first (of many??) Bolt Action gaming days

A bit about Bolt Action for those less aware…

Written by veteran game designers Alessio Cavatore and Rick Priestley, “Bolt Action” provides all the rules needed to bring the great battles of World War II to your tabletop. Using miniature soldiers, tanks and terrain, you can fight battles in the shattered towns of occupied France, the barren deserts of North Africa, and even the sweltering jungles of the Pacific. Players get to decide which of the major or minor World War II powers they would like to represent, and then construct their armies from the lists provided. Army options are almost limitless, allowing you to build the kind of army that most appeals to your style of play, from heavily armored tank forces to lightly armed, but highly skilled. The choice is yours. Created as a joint project between Warlord Games, the premiere historical miniatures company, and Osprey Publishing, the leading independent military history publisher, “Bolt Action” is sure to be the most popular new wargame on the market.

For those of you that play Bolt Action and are interested in attending, then the following will be relevant…

  • 1000pt Infantry and optional armoured platoons, + a 650pt from the same list.
  • 3 games: 2 single, 1 doubles.
  • 3 lists needed: 1k infantry, .6k infantry. 1k armoured (optional)
  • No blue on blue
  • NO dice cap.
  • NO vehicle flame throwers.
  • Veteran Tanks cannot be pinned by HMG fire. (they are just too cool to worry about about a bit of harmless flak)

The period for this gaming session will be: North Africa & Crete

There will probably be no prizes but kudos for being top axis/allied general
