Warlords Games have added a new profile onto their website for use with Bolt Action. You might remember this particular sniper from Enemy At The Gates played by Jude Law. See if you can find a spot to snipe from with Vasily Zaitzev…
The full rules for Vasily are located over on the link above but he’s a crack shot as you might imagine. He will be hitting pretty much anything he comes against very easily and can adapt to the various situations he might find himself in with ease.
Some more about him…
“Hero of the Soviet Union Vasily Zaitzev first distinguished himself during the battle of Stalingrad as a superb sniper. He killed 225 Axis officers and men over a five-week period of the battle, including 11 enemy snipers. Between October 1942 and January 1943 it’s been estimated he scored as many as 400 kills, although more conservative estimates place the figure at around 300. All this was achieved despite taking the time to train other Red Army men and women in specialist sniping techniques that are still in use to this day.”
This all comes ahead of the Ostfront: Barbarossa to Berlin supplement coming out for Bolt Action next year. It’s touted for an early release so keep an eye out for it if you like your Russians.
Oh, and watch Enemy At The Gates; it’s awesome. Make sure to sculpt a Ron Pearlman miniature to.
Will you be using Vasily on the battlefield?
