  1. Excellent report! Lovely photos too.I hope to have a Bolt Action game soon.

  2. Great AAR thanks for sharing. I see you newly build house made it onto the table.

  3. Great report, looks like it was very close there until the German's made a break for Patton there at the end.

    I have been reading about air and artillery and it seems to be a hit and miss thing for the most part. It sounds like when it works it wrecks units or otherwise has no major impact on the game.

  4. Very nice AAR !

    I have the rules but havent tested them yet, probably have to soon...

    Best regards Michael
