Unfortunately, we were unable to stop ourselves playing another game of Bolt Action 2nd Edition and again we deployed our troops to fight it out again in the heat of Tunisia. Both armies consisted of 1250 points per side with and our mission was again the meeting engagement as we had three new players (Dave Lowe, Harrison Smith, and Terry Moran) joining us for the afternoon.
The terrain was a mix of my terrain and John Maguire’s outstanding collection all of which was scratch build by the very talented Lev Vykopal in Western Australia. Lev is a genius at scratch buildings and has completed some very fine terrain pieces for John and myself.
The figures were again from John’s fantastic collection. Next time we hope to head over the Mediterranean Sea to fight in Europe. Until then please enjoy the images and stay safe.
As per usual, the Bolt Action rules were a joy to play and loads of fun for the new players. Both sides took heavy causalities from small arms fire and there was some deadly hand to hand combat in and around the Alamein township, which changed hands at least three times.
The last turn (six) saw the British 8th Army lads sneak in a slight victory against the Africa Korps lads but the game could have gone to either side. I think what put the nail in the coffin for the Germans was the loss of their Mk III.
