Bolt Action - Armies of Ethiopia

by Cbax

One thing that makes Bolt Action so accessible is the universality of its core rules.  While Bolt Action, in its current form, is a World War Two miniature war game, it can easily be adapted to other periods and genres.  We have already seen people play Bolt Action Vietnam games, and my own group has ever dabbled in some Bolt Action sci-fi games.  While it's not a stretch to lump The Abyssinia Campaign into the conflict we now call World War Two,  it was just one of the many small conflicts where new tactics and machines of war were tested before the War began.

This PDF is an unofficial supplement for the Bolt Action World War II table top war game. It contains background, history, and army lists, so you can field an Ethiopian Army in the Bolt Action Game. Inside, you will find details of the organization and equipment used by the Army of the Empire of Ethiopia, as well as a mini campaign intended to help you recreate one of the most well known engagements of the war, the Christmas Offensive.

My goal was to create an army supplement that will allow the adventurous gamer to field an Ethiopian army suitable for recreating the battles of Second Italo-Ethiopian War (1935 to 1936) and also give a nod to their involvement in retaking their country in the East Africa Campaign (1940 to 1941).

I hope you enjoy this unofficial supplement, I surely enjoyed working on it in my spare time.  Let me know what you think about it by joining the conversation or sending me a private message over on the forum.

(Tons of effort and research went in to Cbax's work here. If you enjoy it, or have any feedback, don't hesitate to drop by the forum and let us know. Now, to find some bowman ... - Judson)
