Deetails And Omaha Beach

Yesterday we wanted to commemorate the D-Day anniversary with a Bolt Action game.  Juno beach was considered, but I really wanted to play with my Americans, so we were off to Omaha Beach...











Meanwhile, somewhere in the Pacific...

Bolt Action Actions

Deetails all the time!  I love looking at photos of toy soldiers in action.  Here are a few pictures from a couple recent Bolt Action games to throw on to the web:







Comrades Airfix (and Comrade Italeri-ski)!


A quick Panzerschreck conversion.




Small table, big guys!


Happy 1/32 (and 1/35) gaming everyone!

Save The Nurses! (Indian Mutiny)

When the dashing Sir Arthur Hamilton Brock heard there were two pretty nurses all alone in a Company outpost, he immediately marched his column to the rescue!

"Ladies", says he, "you have nothing to fear because we are here!"


But then a bugle call is heard in the distance...


Mutineers!  Thousands of them!



Sir Arthur Hamilton Brock's loyal native troops form up...


Tribesmen take aim against them...


The field of battle...


The brave Thin Red Line...


Sir Arthur pauses for some much needed refreshments...


Before the Badmashes charge...


And break through!


Sir Arthur Hamilton Brock's last words:  "Save The Nurses!!"

Yesterday's ACW game

The Sepoys on my painting desk got pushed aside for a couple of days as I rushed to finish some more of my All The King's Men miniatures.  Such great figures.  Had to put them onto the table immediately to have them get acquainted with their Deetails, Marx repos, DSG and Armies in Plastic friends.  Used a modified The Sword and The Flame for rules and enjoyed a very nice game.  Here are a couple of pictures...

Western Desert 1941

Well, as a step away from chopping up and converting Deetails into Sepoys, (hopefully will post them soonish), I felt it was way past time to revisit Bolt Action.  Here are a couple pictures from two games played last night:

 





The 8th Army was my focus in the Fall.  Happily convinced a bunch of Airfix guys to donate their helmets to the Deetails Cause.   Now to find some British Armoured cars...
