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

Looking down the road towards the advancing Americans

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!!

PBeM Turn 8

Well another Entente plane falls from the sky with  Navarre's Morane, flown by Paul being shot down by Jager in Immelmans Eindecker. We also have our first medal winner for  Bill, flying Keudells Halberstadt ( a veteran of my PBeM games) scoring 15+ damage on the enemy. He gets an Iron cross for services to the Kaiser, but will he survive to receive it?
The Germans seem to be getting on top now with a 3 to 2 advantage in planes over the Entente, will they retreat, or grit their teeth and turn back into the fray and vanguish the dastardly Boche!
Turn 9 orders in by 6pm Sunday folks, damage reports to follow for the unfortunate ones affected.
Bon Chance to you all

PBeM Turn 7

Hi Guys,

Well turn 7 sees our first "BOOM" card of the game, with Shawn's Morane Saulnier exploding under the guns of the blue Roland (Who is that exceptional, skilled pilot flying that plane I wonder? Ha-Ha)

Lots of fragile planes out there and it could go either way?

PBem Turn 4

Hi Guys,

Well that was an interesting turn, two more planes have bitten the dust, Hautzmeyers Eindecker, and Johnsons Nieuport 16. there was also a collision in phase 3 between the same Nieuport, and Saundby's DH2! Luckily for both pilots they survived that, but will probably need a change of underwear when they get back to the aerodrome?

Turn 4 photo's below, can I please have turn 5 orders no later than 6pm GMT Sunday 10th November?

PBeM Turn 3 Photos

Hi Guys,

Well we've had our first casualty of the game with a Morane Saulnier crashing out of the sky from withering fire from the blue Roland and Buddecke's EIII, so half a kill each to those pilots, and well done to them. I'm sure there will be more "kills" to come on both sides in the next few turns as some of the planes are taking a bit of a battering?

Pictures from turn 3 below, can I have turn 4 orders in no later than 6pm GMT Wednesday 6th November please?
