The Attack On San Fillippe (1)

For this encounter next week we will be using Bolt Action rules, I wanted to try something similar to what Dave has done successfully for our Black Powder games, units that lose a close combat or fail a morale test due to 50% casualties from shooting are not removed from the table. They will immediately RUN towards the nearest friendly table edge, also taking an additional pin marker. If they already have an ORDER DICE this is changed to a RUN order, or if they do not then one is taken from the bag, they move the full 12" regardless of terrain, also mark them as routing with a suitable marker. In subsequent turns they can try to be rallied if still on the table, take an order test to RALLY but all pins are counted against their morale rating and if they pass the test only remove ONE pin for passing the order test. They will also have a permanent pin marker for the rest of the game.

Hasta la vista, until then here is a photo of the latest Moors I have painted.

  1. Very fine looking Moors there, just in time to be shot up on Monday too😉 I'm sure the rule adaptation will give us a better game too.

    2. And Dave's adjustments for BP have given our games some extra depth I feel.

  4. A good house rule, I am looking around at house rules to improve things, found some good ideas for WWII.

    1. Have found BA to be very tinkerable, it has a sound base to adapt from.
