I have been a busy little boy over the weekend and it's really good to be back into painting with a vengeance and yes, Dave O'Brien, I know I should have used a paintbrush. From a preview of the Bolt Action rules, it looks as if they are a cross between Warhammer 40K and Black Powder. They have points values (a big NO), but can be played with a re-enforced platoon on each side (a big YES), which means that I don't have to break the bank to get a sustainable force and, of course, will not be touching the points values with a barge pole.
The rule mechanisms look good with almost simultaneous actions: say there are five German and six French units on the table. Eleven order dice of two different colours are put into a bag and drawn out one at a time. That way all units get to go but no one knows in which order.
It was written by Alessio Cavatore and Rick Priestley and is published by Warlord Games in conjunction with Osprey.
I intend to collect a platoon each of Germans and French or Krauts and Frogs for the Politically Correct amongst you. The more prurient WFP out there may have already noticed that the the model in the last image is an Sd.Kfz. 251/1 Ausf. D armed with MG42s and not an Sd.Kfz. 251/1 Ausf. C armed with MG34s as would befit the period 1939 to 1940 since the buggers at Warlord Games don't currently do one and I'm damned if my wee men are going to walk to work.
I have really missed you guys and hope at some stage to be able to get back together with all of you.
