I played a Bolt Acton game here in GHQ recently with Simon, a chum from football who games occasionally when his hectic work schedule permits. The objective was to capture and hold a ruined farm. Simon took the B.E.F. and I took the Germans.
The farm complex I made using Hovells ruins, Dovecote, Eastern Front fencing sections and shell craters. The cobbled yard effect is a 'sample' of textured wallpaper from a DIY store. The explosion markers are kapok lightly sprayed black and mounted on MDF bases. The figures in my collection are mainly Foundry, with a few BEF/Warlord, with some Days Gone By prepainted vehicles in support.
Another set of rules that I must look into sometime. They seem to produce some good games from what I've seen of them on various blogs.ReplyDelete
Thanks for posting.
The rules are good, simple and fast to learn, not very complex. Some would call it historical light gaming. Still it is full of flavor, enjoyable to the average wargamer and half the rules and complexity of other games. Heh, sounds like a beer!Delete
Great BATREP, scenery is very nice!ReplyDelete
Cracking looking game you had there, how many bits did you miss ;-)ReplyDelete
