Library Binding Brand: So, I turned to my Commandos and sent them into the teeth of the enemy, bayonets and daggers gleaming, Sten guns blazing away. In Bolt Action, an assault is dangerous - the enemy gets to react by firing on the charging unit if they start far enough away - but there is no draw, just victory or death for the attacker. Thankfully for me, Commandos are "Tough Fighters" and excel at the assault, and so I wiped out one of Dan's squads in a flurry of bullets, blades, and bayonets.
An empty shell crater is all that's left of the Panzergrenadier squad, while their mates to the right look away in horror At this point, Dan's officer jumps into the half-track and opens fire on my Commandos with its machine gun, and the other infantry squad also opens fire, as does the advancing Tiger tank.
Seeing my center forced open yet again, my Forward Artillery Officer calls down a barrage of artillery fire on the German squad see the white die with the bulls-eye in the photo above.
Unfortunately, the blast radius of the barrage is HUGE, and over the next two rounds, a number of units - both friend and foe - are pinned or damaged, and my poor medic and his stretcher-bearer the bare metal models in the top-right of the above photo are killed by a heavy howitzer shell!
Determined to press on, Dan drives his Tiger tank through the bombardment zone and tries to get off of my size of the board, since his infantry are so pinned by the bombardment that they're refusing to embark on their transport.
With my Sherman immobilized and out of line-of-sight, and my armored car on the other side of the board he's been sniping at a German MMG unit and the veteran Grenadiers all game , all I've got to deal with the tiger is my lone PIAT anti-tank gunner, who lost his loader and broke and ran in the opening bombardment.
He's finally collected himself and lost his pinning penalties, and he moves forward, finally getting within good range for a shot at the Tiger's flank. Steady hands now, lad! Make it count! He misses with his first shot due to moving and firing and long range, but the second shot hits. I roll a "5" for damage, enough to cause a penetrating hit, and I get another "5" on the damage table, knocking out the Tiger.
With only one infantry squad left, Dan makes a roll to see if the heavily-pinned unit will board its Hanomag half-track, and it fails.
At this point, Dan concedes defeat, since he really can't get anyone off my side of the board in the next turn this was the end of turn 5.
Overall, we both had a lot of fun.
The rules move fast once you get the hang of them, and while the game isn't exactingly realistic, there are enough elements that make sense to give it a feeling of completeness and logic. The effects of pinning especially can be very frustrating, but it makes sense that your men aren't just blithely going about their business as shells explode and bullets snap all around them.
You also need to make sure you're using your officers' Morale bonuses to their best effect, something I think neither of us paid much attention to during the game.
I'm not sure when we'll have another chance to play, but we're both looking forward to another battle, this time with the game mechanics more firmly understood and a better idea of how the game itself plays out.
