Bolt Action game

Played another game of Bolt action with my son, Harry on Sunday. He took the Americans again, while I had the Germans. We played 1000pts a side, I had an HQ, 4 infantry squads, Mortar, Sniper team, Artillery FO, Puma AC, Panzer IV, Medic, and MMG. He had HQ, 4 infantry squads, Sniper, Bazooka, 2 x .30 cal teams, Aircraft FO, Light Mortar, Sherman 75mm, and M8 Greyhound.

We played the Top Secret scenario, and he wiped the floor with me again, winning in turn 6, by getting off the table with the objective. It didn't help matters when my FO did a "Miscalculation" (Again!!), and Harry repositioned the bombardment, killing one squad completely, and pinning to death another 3!

Some pictures below of the early action, unfortunately I forgot to take photo's as we progressed through the game?

The Americans advance up the road, led by the M8

A glorious German advance, soon to be obliterated by a "Miscalculated" Artillery Bombardment

The Americans advance towards the Objective located near the barn

After my Puma Shot at, and missed the M8, Harry returned the favour and knocked out the Puma! What made it worse is that I'd positioned my HQ behind the Puma, so it couldn't reverse out of the way!!
