WW 1 Bolt Action

The other night a few of the lads got together for a WW1 game.

Rules used were Bolt Action.

Figures are 20mm from Brad's collection.

The battle was based around a British force sent to capture a German occupied town. 

 German artillery quickly began dropping shells on the advancing British.
 Meanwhile the German infantry made good use of the cover of the buildings.
All rather peaceful at the moment.

That is about to change though.

 The British advanced toward the town using the hedges and woods as cover.
 As soon as they were seen the German artillery began firing.

 When the British artillery had deployed they started returning the fire and the Germans in the town began to suffer.
 A couple of groups came through the orchard while others walked boldly down the road.

 The German defenders waited in the buildings until the Brit's were close enough to open fire.

 With their artillery raining down shells the British advanced from hedge to hedge.
 Pins and casualties were mounting rapidly for the Germans.
With all the reinforcements for the Germans committed now it was only a matter of time.
The Germans were forced to withdraw from the town and lick their wounds.

Thanks Brad for organising a great game for us.
