Last week end Antonio and Maurizio prepared a great scenario inspired to Vietnam fights.
In the last months they worked hard to prepare a version of Bolt Action that can work for this kind of setting, and, as it is possible to see below, their work had a good result.
Below a Bell AH-1 Cobra in preparation and…
… the same model finally in action during the game
but also the Viet player prepared his secret weapons
The mission they prepared was easy to better test the rules … and now a short battle report
During a recon mission, some US troops found a significant concentration of Viet not very far from a little village
After the recon starts the real game
Viet forces were under the control of Antonio, Enrico and Eugenio while US troops were deployed by Maurizio and Giancarlo. All miniatures are 20mm and they are painted by Maurizio (USA) and Antonio (Vietcong).
Viet forces have to evacuate the village using the street at the bottom of the photo
The first Viet move is an escape and…
… the American players try to stop them with the armored forces
Unfortunately, the first platoon that leave the M132 is heavy attacked by the Viet veterans hide into the village
and also the American tank is hit and destroyed after some turns
Viet forces continue their advance
and Us units slow down them with the artillery
And with a suicide attack of M132
it is time for the Americans to show their military power
but the American losses are too high and they have to go back
To conclude a cameo prepared by Maurizio inspired by "Apocalypse now"
