Last Saturday, Ivano and Riccardo played a Bolt Action scenario from “Duel in the sun”. This supplement reports scenarios and rules for the African and Italian campaign and my club mates reproduced a fight between Commonwealth troops and Italians some days after Allies landing in Sicilia.
To play this game both Riccardo and Ivano started to paint miniatures weeks ago. This time I decided to include into the post not only some photos of the battle but also some imagines of their work in progress. Ivano and Riccardo are fine painters and their miniatures increase their valor on a good table but their work is very significant stand alone too.
Ivano painted Italians …
… while Riccardo works on UK elements
But now a look at the table before to summarize the fight
Riccardo and his troops started with a preliminary bombardment
And the PINS arrive
English sniper hits several times Italian artillery destroying it …
… and the spotter remains alone
Commonwealth troops advance
Italians, with their HMG, try to push down the enemy but it is an hard work
Now it is time for the armored unit
Unfortunately the M40 75/18 is destroyed
Italian sniper hits some enemy units but the advance continues
The last turns are an hand-to-hand fight
At the end the Italian officer has to declare his defeat
