Ok, July was a weird month. Lost of travel but a strong hobby mojo. Instead of painting I built, and I even had a game of Bolt Action with an opponent, first in month!
Report at the end of the article.
Few miniatures progress, I have launched a good progress in-between business travel to glue my fantasy miniatures. I felt good to do something not work related and with little brain-power. Getting the right arm, looking for position, using the bitz I had from Frostgrave heroes....
|Army of plastic - multiple brands and sources in there, mixing and blending|
|Bretonnian (GW) with non-GW arms. Look better than their basic spearman.|
|I even build a 2 weapon soldiers from the bretonnian officer.|
|With some bluetak, that bretonnian look fiercer.|
|And my wolverine version. Celt warband with skaven arm.|
and I found that box sitting in one of the hobby shop. I am going to use it for a cell for my dungeon terrain. It is 1/32, and works well as a cage with 28mm.
I also added 3 more tanks and 2 AT guns to my collection of "Stuff build, even if I know I won't play them".
|2xpanther, 2xPak 40 in 20 mm and 1 28mm Tiger|
|my 20mm collection. It is only a question of time until games come back to that format.|
July business' trips was ended with a bolt action game. German panzer grenadier vs. my Partisan.
Partisan are a versatile army with a lack of armor (which is crap in most of the wargames with a lot of point in a hit-or-miss point sinker). 1000 points army.
My opponent listed 20 elite soldiers in 1 command squad, 2 squads, 1 airstrike spotter, 1 sniper team, 1 MMG team, 1 flamer hetzer and 1 armored transport. (so 8 command dice)
I had, 72 soldiers, in 2 command squads, 7 squads (6 inexperimented and 1 veteran), 3 trucks, 1 AT gun, 2 MMG squads, 2 snipers, 1 bazooka and 1 captured armored transport. (so 19 command dice)
|There is nothing better than a team of pistol madmen charging with trucks|
|Scaring that little hetzer. It worked!|
|Meanwhile the German feel a little outnumbered|
|Reinforcement arrived more or less at the same place|
|The german killed 1 small team and 2 trucks before falling under the numbers|
|#feelinglonely. Snipers and observers are a little... surrounded.|
Note: In BA, Attrition is by number of units killed rather than "Point value". It doesn't reflect the loss value of elite vs. small powerless units.
