DDay Beach Assault. Bolt Action.

John and Phil came over for a game of Bolt Action today.
Always promised John we would play on my D Day board that Joseph Semione built for me, so I set it up.

It was a 1250 point game with Phil and myself taking the US Veterans and John the German Waffen SS.

Things kicked of well with the preliminary bombardment for the Americans managing to pin some of those Germans down. However just like in the real thing, by turn six the first wave was ineffective for the Americans  not getting off the beach in time and, having lost most of there units it was a German win.




Calm before the storm.

All over for the Americans with just about all squads wiped out by turn 6.
