It’s lunchtime again here at the OnTableTop studios where we’re working on feeding some hungry Boot Campers. Do you reckon they’re enjoying the traditional Western Desert themed hot dogs?

We go the extra mile however and take out the sand…

Waging Wonderful War

Heroic Showdown: Per vs Max

Heroic Showdown: Per vs Max

When Per brought his 8th Army up against the Afrika Korps, he was on the back foot.  His men were outnumbered; exposed to Max’s unrelenting German rage.

Enflamed by pride and the seduction of an easy victory, a few troops from the Afrika Korps climb atop their crated cover, open a rally of machine gun fire…and miss two of the three men directly in front of them.

They should have gone to German Specsavers.

The 8th Army seeing a small advantage move forward to assault, and a gruesome combat ensues. Although in the end the brave men of the 8th lost their lives, the Afrika Korps lost good soldiers.

It was a lesson to Max and his Afrika Korps in the follies of war but, more importantly, a fascinating battle to watch on the tabletop!

I love the western desert campaign. But that might be because i love the Matilda II. I want to get round to doing an armoured force of Matilda II’s for Bolt action at some point.

Also the lady who came with her husband just to pitch in is a saint. Someone should pick her up some flowers.

I have not jumped in on any historical war games yet, but bolt action looks like it would fit my skirmish kick.

HEAVY SIGH. So you all got to spend the day fighting battles in the desert while I spent the day re-roofing my shed. I wonder which of us had the more fun :op
