A Bit of Backyard Bolt Action

A German Battlegroup tries to halt the Allied advance in today's Bolt Action Lite game with The Kid.

How the Americans...

...and the British wound up on the Russian Steppes driving towards Germany, is one of those great unexplored mysteries of WWII.

But it really doesn't matter though, 'cause the Germans confidently cruise into action blowing up Shermans and Churchills with little concern for their own safety...


Cheers ring out from the American lines!

Suddenly more Panzers start to brew up!

Even the Tiger I!?! 

And with that, it ends.

Fun stuff.  We left the order dice and pinning markers out because I didn't want to lose them in the grass.  But we didn't really need them anyway.  Bolt Action Lite!

Britains/Heralds Trojans/Greeks vs. Samurai WAB

A "Seize The Hill" scenario with Tro-Spartans and late period Samurai.

A cleverly disguised Ninja hides in the woods, waiting to pounce on the unsuspecting.  Forces were drawn from the AoA book (Trojans/Spartans and the Samurai list).

The Samurai army with a full allotment of seven (!) Samurai heros!  (Toshiro, Yoshio, Takashi, Ko, Daisuke, Seiji, Minoru.)

Agamemnon gives a rousing speech to inspire his troops!

Paris leads the left flank archers.  (He missed every time he fired!)

Meanwhile, Ashigaru firing their (white powder) teppo are deadly!

The clash on Featherstone Hill!

Phalanx meets Spear-armed Ashigaru.

Bare-chested Trojans tower over the Samurai...

The Phalanx tries to chase down the fleeing Ashigaru.

...the bigger the Trojans, the harder they fall.

In the end a Samurai victory!
