We didn't field any armour as we wanted to get into the game without too much special rules as it was only my 3rd and Chris' first game. As always my dice rolling proofed to be sub-par and I lost half my force before inflicting the first casualty on the Airborne.
|The lay of the land|
|Chris really created an amazing table again|
|First German troops enter the battlefield|
|The Americans follow swiftly|
|German sniper crossing the road to get in cover|
|The American sniper team takes position in the old water tower|
|The perfidious Airborne in defiance of the geneva convention killing one of the medics adjutants|
|The MMG takes position in the ploughed field|
|American mortar ready to let rain destruction|
|Bad dice rolling for status of the Volksgrenadiere... 6 pinmarkers instead of a promotion :-/|
|First kill on the MMG|
|Well prepared positions occupied by the Airborne|
|My first lieutenant suddenly on his own|
|You really don't want to cross this field...|
|Still neglecting the geneva convention the medics second adjutant is killed|
|14 dead Germans... no dead Americans|
|First American blood|
|American dead at the end of the game|
|German dead at the end of the game|
Because of some really bad dice rolling it became soon clear who will lose the game. The German forces were almost completely wiped out by well orchestrated American fire.
We had a great game and after the first two turns the rules worked like a treat. I really like the Bolt Action mechanics even when they're a bit rudimentary at times. For example the terrain rules should be pimped with some house rules.
Because of the better lighting in Chris' Hobby room I took the chance to take some photos of my completed Luftwaffenfelddivision:
