BATTLE REPORT : Soviet's Assault

Posted by Panzer Mom on May 11, 2017 at 10:10 PM


During Spring break my son and I decided to have a game of Bolt Action.

Objective: The Soviets to take out radio communications and blow up a supply storage facility deep in the German compound in 5 rounds. Germans to defend.

500-point army, - There was a twist, the Soviets had one British unit on loan from the British Military.

Resources spent: Germans – 1 fuel, Soviets – none.

With the objectives set, it was now time to build the table. My son decided he wanted to create the table. He did an amazing job!

Round One : Since I started in my own base my German's did not have far to advance :

The Soviets were moving up the table quickly :

I decided to put my Waffen SS Squad into my Hanomag and get them on the road :

Round Two : Germans starting to feel the pressure of the Soviets advancing :

The next thing I know is I have Soviets assaulting my HQ over the wall : 

At this point I am getting a wee bit nervous that the Soviets are going to take out my HQ.  The dice were rolled and my lonely German LT was left standing. I got so lucky!! 

Round Three : The Soviets and the British units were pushing up the battle ground only to come face to face with the German Flame Thrower Team.

Needless to say that didn't go very well for the British Para Squad :

But that British Para was not going down without a fight, he rushed the flame thrower team and took them out! 

 Round 4 began with my Hanomag rushing up the road to have my Waffen rush out and assault the Soviet troops :

This proved to be a very bad decison on my part, for another squad of Soviets took off for a run towards the objectives :

The Objective : Take out the Radio Tower : But Can they do it??? 

The Soviets small squad decided to make a run for the objective, leaving the German LT watching in horror! 

Then Round 5 began, and at this point there was not much the Germans could do other than watching the Soviets rush towards the objective! It was exciting watching the dice being rolled and the troops moving I forgot to take pictures!! Lol

In the end it was a draw the Soviets just didn't have enough time to make it to the objectives. The Germans were able to hold their postion on the map and they all lived to fight another day. 

Until next time,

Wow! Great table and report. I love the para doing what British paras do. A 'Colonel H' moment, that one... 😊
