Bolt Action Boot Camp: Sunday

Supported by (Turn Off)

It's Sunday! Normally we'd be wishing you a Happy Sunday from the Weekender set but this time weekend we're still playing host to the Bolt Action Boot Camp which is going great. Everyone's really enjoying using their armies and we've got something awesome planned later on today...

D-Day Firefight

You might have seen us hinting at it elsewhere but watch out for something alien. We've heard rumours of cows getting abducted...

D-Day Campaign: Battle For Pegasus Bridge Round Four

25 Comments

The fighting hots up this morning and the British try and make their way across the bridge under increasing amounts of German fire including a sniper who takes roost in the bridge control room.

German troops on the top of the bridge fire down onto those trying to take cover behind the metal barriers on the side of the bridge and take a few out but not before return fire forces them into cover and kills most of the squad.

The British Commanding Officer, Crazy Jack, runs across the bridge to try and rally his squads into action as the Spotter for the Allies is also bought down when looking for the perfect target.

In the end the German Medic decides the squad atop the bridge is a lost cause and makes his way back down the stairs...or maybe that should be "flees back down the stairs".

D-Day Campaign: Battle For Pegasus Bridge Round Five

24 Comments

The brave British Paratrooper Winston runs forward and survives a deadly flamethrower shot from one of the German teams as they close in on the control tower. His mate Charles gets roasted alive and unfortunately falls into the river...

Meanwhile the British also try and move up the centre of the bridge and get peppered by the German MMG. The Germans sense a bit of an opportunity and shoot close range with their Panzerschreck but weirdly it just harmlessly bounces off the metalwork.

The British Paratroopers begin to get some reinforcements and the soldiers are closing in. There are going to be some heroic moments next turn...

D-Day Campaign: Battle For Pegasus Bridge Round Six

21 Comments

The British get very close to the control room of the bridge and are very close to securing it before more Germans get involved.

Poor old Winston dies fighting off the flamethrower crew; surely something that would net him a Victoria Cross. More heroics are just around the corner though As the British Commander, Jack Hardasnails III runs ahead to finish off what Winston started.

Bullets are pinging everywhere and Jack has dodged most of the MG shots coming his way - even managing to take down a plucky German Medic who tried to stop him.

Will the British be able to make it there in time before German reinforcements arrive? Will the British spotter be able to add some howitzer support to the bridge capture?

D-Day Campaign: Battle For Pegasus Bridge Final Round

As Jack closes in the German SS Officer decides enough is enough. Activating first (oops...my bad, sorry Rob for pulling the dice!) he charges towards Jack and delivers the killing blow scuppering the British plans to take Pegasus Bridge.

In the end this scenario ends with the Germans winning the day and stopping the British advance late at night. Maybe the invasion wouldn't have gone so well because of this set back?

Remember to help out and join in with the D-Day World Wide Campaign!

A Superb Panther & Some World Of Tanks Style Action...

25 Comments

Not only have we got this rather superb looking Panther painted up very nicely indeed but a moment that would be worthy of World of Tanks.

The Tiger zoomed past the train only to be spotted by the Hellcat from between the carriages. A shot was fired that simply bounced off the Tiger's rear. The Tiger, sensing a problem, went into full reverse and aimed through the same gap!

The Tiger took his shot and even with a Recce Move from the Hellcat it wasn't enough. It bit the dust with a round right through the front of the hull.

Our Own Pegasus Bridge

You've heard all about it from John earlier but it really is one of the heroic moments from World War II. See how we mocked up our Pegasus Bridge assault in all its glory before our wargamers got stuck into it.

We had a lot of fun putting together this board and John is very proud of it! We might have taken a few liberties with the combatants...and the bridge charge, but other than that enjoy!

At first, I was a bit disappointed that there wasn’t a casual march past…

Then, I started giggling away…

A SWAT team in the bushes..I think they’ve triggered an alarm and are now on the government’s list of suspects..!

Seems to have gone really well. Great idea bringing reenactors along to show off their uniforms and Dixie was really interesting – Thanks John’s Dad! I have to say for even a non-minis player (ok X-Wing) that this one tempts me. Castlerock is a long way for me but Bolt Action 28 mm looks pretty cool.
