Default Bolt Action Batrep. Brits v Russians

One of the most painful games I ever played. My opponent could only roll sixes. The worst bit was we were using my dice, and I only rolled a six when rolling morale checks.

Its a great system, Nacho, and fairly cheap to get a good starter army in the table as well. As for the dice rolls, man they were more than just lucky. I became suspicious that he may have sacrificed his first born to the dice gods by turn 4. It was freaky just how regular he rolled sixes and I rolled ones.

I'm thinking about styling a British army after the desert rats(grandad was in North africa). I've looked at the models and it's pretty cheap compared to the other stuff I play lol.

About the dice lol, I rememeber a game with this dude at Stirling GW used loaded dice. I enjoyed the game all the same but I was like, "you bastard" lol

Top report that KF.

I've recently started work again on my late war British infantry after three months of not picking up a brush, so this is great inspirado.

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.

Glad it helped. It's always a much better game when all your minis are fully painted. Besides, painted minis fight better.

Great bat rep, but I am disappointed with the performance of the tanks, if I got involved with a ww2 game I'd be all over armour like a tramp eating chips

The poor performance of my tank was down to shit dice rather than shit tank. However, in an infantry orientated game tanks are a big points sink, especially if you want to run big German cats. Historically they were awesome at killing other tanks, but if there is nothing for them to shoot their big guns at you've basically paid 40% of your points for two MGs in a mobile pillbox.

There is a Tank Wars supplement, but if you want big WWII tank battles Flames of War is more fitting.

And you let the Reds win? For shame, my friend, for shame.

Really neat bat-rep, man. Sucks the dice turned on you.
