Things have really come a long way for us at BoltAction.Net in the last four months. If you haven't checked out the forum, come on over! There's a lot going on: Professor Aruba (ArbaTheHutt, for the uninitiated), delivers his (mostly) weekly lectures on Bolt Action tactics there; Dano spreads the religion that is Rules As Written; and DoctorDH hands out made-to-order avatars for anyone that asks!
We've got plenty of battle reports to pour over; even Steve's getting in on the action. Forum user ProfNexus has contributed two AARs, and all users willing to put the time in are encouraged to submit their battle reports for review, and potential publication.
|In case you didn't know, Steve's into the desert stuff!|
|ProfNexus has provided some beautiful (and brutal) battle reports!|
|StuG IIIs take better pictures than the hit targets... when I command them.|
|"zed"s entry in the BoltAction.Net Painting Contest. Beat that!|
|"dugkirby"s infantry squad will actually charge, then kill you, if you don't like its paint job. Seriously.|
"I decided to skip the third round of the tournament in favor of participating in one of the Bolt Action demo games put on by the WWPD Bolt Action crew (Dano and Judson). I had a great time and really liked the ruleset. The rules as best described as "Saga for WWII". The armies are relatively small (30-40 figures plus the odd tank) and the rule mechanics simple. There is a good feel for the benefits of combined arms and it's just a lot of fun. Dano and Judson did a great job as GM's/Emcee's and I pretty sure they have honed their joke delivery skills in the finest dives along the catskill mountains - I could swear I was hearing rim-shots after each punchline! It was a very fun event."
As a matter of fact, I took 81 all the way into PA, thereby avoiding the Catskill range - but there were plenty of glorious dive bars to hone my craft at along the way, regardless. Thank you for noticing!
Curious to see what a Bolt Action list looks like? Come check out our list generators! Duncan and I have spent some time making these tools for the community, and with the blessing of Warlord Games and Osprey Publishing, are able to offer them for free. Duncan's done a great job - they must be seen to be believed.
|Beat your opponent before models hit the table! (OK, these listers won't really help you beat anyone. You're going to have to figure that out yourself. At least we're honest!)|
|You better hope this NCO isn't gesturing towards your troops!|
BoltAction.Net has really grown faster than any of us could have imagined. There are a lot of projects in the works that I'd love to reveal to you all, but don't want to spoil anything, so stay tuned! If you haven't stopped by The BAR yet, do it today. Tell the bartender to charge your drinks to Dano's paypal account. He never reads these, so he'll be cool with it.
