October painting summary: Painting

 The partisans are growing in numbers, with dungeon terrain freshly painted
Being a dandy and a partisan combo

Captain's log

Feel like the news boss in spiderman 
Reporter without debt

Scarlet and her ex-husband skull

sleeping bed and spys

Tatiana and her ikea barricade

The odd couple

The old captain retelling his war stories

The old man defending his loot

The scum and his gold bag

The She-niper and her prisoner

This is MY gold

Workers and partisans at the market

And some dungeon tiles

For my son's birthday, we went to a laser tag venue, and we did a small trophy to sit on top of the birthday cake (a cup cake pyramid to be precise)

And Man o'war. These ships have been waiting for decent paint for a very long time. Finally, I gave them the attention they deserved. The dwarf proxy ships are now done.
Finally closing in my Man o'war proxies. Missing the sails on the Imperial

Bolt Action: The not-so-secret-plans battle report

2 weeks ago, we had a 3vs2 Bolt Action, Allies vs Axis. 1800 pts per side.
There were US+Brit+Partisans against German+Italian.

Here was the brief to the Partisan Force.
"The mission, Jean-Jacques, is simple. Jean-Pierre and Jean-Michel have successfully ambushed a small convoy of officers. Our road side bombs have done a good job. Jean-Francois and Jean-Paul are coming with the cowboys and the roast-beef. Hold you position and good luck."

Mission: Secret plan. No deployment, all units in reserves, but spotters and snipers.
Jean-Jacques and Jean-Charles in their lookout. 

In the middle of the village, the half track holds the suit case. A German sniper team is keeping the Allies in check above the halftrack.

The American and British players

The Americans take cover behind a wrecked car

The Axis force quickly entered the battlefield

(Turn 3) the Partisan trucks full of pistol squads finally entered the area

Emerging from the truck, the partisans deployed

"Nom d'une pipe, ca va barder!"

The famous Italian armors, a Joke to most nations, a deadly threat to partisans with all their MMGs

Jean-Jacques and Jean-Charles are still alive after 80+ shots to them

Still, the Axis got there faster and were running with the secret plans (pinned unit, middle of the photo). The Partisans were running behind them, Benny Hill style

The Allies just need to kill them to stop them from running away


The Allies are way behind

Final pictures. The Allies almost caught the plans, but the Italians ran faster
