Today was another game of Bolt Action. This was the first 500 point game I've played in the current escalation league. I ran three rifle squads, a sniper team, heavy machine gun, and medium mortar. We played the demolition scenario. I had a day of horrendous dice rolling, managing to fail numerous order tests and score very few hits throughout the game. Amazingly, I was able to hold on for a draw.
The good news is that I was the highest points scorer in the league for the month of August and won a prize. Warlord Games has provided some items as prize support for folks who play in the league. I got this
which will fit in perfectly with the Soviet army I'm planning for this system. I've got all the figures I need (I think). Just need to decide on guns, vehicles, etc. I've painted up just a few figures just to get an idea of how to paint them. I've also got a 15mm Soviet army to build and I'm not sure which I'll concentrate on first.
