Bolt Action - Sicilia 1943, Dec 9, 2017

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
