A Culvert To Far.

 Matt joined me via Zoom yesterday evening for a game of Bolt Action, I set up a table for the Hold Until Relieved scenario in the rule book.

By turn three it was beginning to look all in for the Germans, turn four onward saw a turnaround in their fortune with the objective changing hands several times. The Germans however were running out of men if they could just last until turn six and no turn seven they would eek out a draw, however a turn seven it was which saw the demise of the Germans has a fighting force. Tenacious counter attacks by the British secured the win for Matt.
Unfortunately in the heat of battle and the evening I neglected to take photos, I think Matt will be putting a post up with his view of the battle and some screen shots at some point.

Off to Pendewar tomorrow for some shenanigans in India, until next time keep safe it is not over yet.

  3. Great game Phil thanks for hosting, it was a grim business on the bridge as it changed hands, I wonder if I should have charged the tank over the bridge but that would have been testing providence with the pak40 lined up !

  8. A lovely looking game Phil.
    As always…
    At least the Pak40 scored a hit before it succumbed to the ‘new unit’ curse…

    All the best. Aly
