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
