Bolt Action - Training Days

Last weekend we gathered together with some old friends in far east of Finland very near Russian border. We were to have some Bolt Action gaming, BBQ and appropriate refreshments.

Other guys were new to Bolt so I was more or less introducing my friends to the fine game. During the weekend we had some four games and after few preliminaries the actual game was a scenario I have had written for Bolt. It's about Germans defending small town against Allied armored troops who were trying to push through. This was done in two parts to have more gaming done.

Germans were victorious as they normally are in this scenario, maybe I should adjust it a bit. But the whole point was to introduce my friends to game so we tried to have as many elements of the game as possible.

This was also first field outing for my 2nd armored and here's some shots of the action.

Until the fight starts with flaming Sherman.
And flaming hal track.

Bolt Action was very much liked because it is easy to learn, very intuitive and it has good period flavor. Also the game flow was appreciated by the gentlemen. And the models are just so nice and inspiring. So I believe two more Bolt Action gamers were brought to to scene.

Very relaxing weekend with good friends and two whole days of gaming immersion. Good food and just right amount of refreshments. Should do it again soon...

  1. Very nice. Good to see those elements of the 2nd Arm Div coming along.

  2. Cool stuff. It's a really great service to get a friend to drive some 200 km to throw some demo games. Even better when the friend brings along two awesome looking armies and has taken the time to put together flavourful and well planned scenarios.
