2019 - Number 78


Flak Batteries Ready for Action
Bolt Action - Overlord / Pathfinder Drops

The Skirmish Group kicked off a series of Bolt Action D-Day games with a neat scenario recreating the Allied Airborne Pathfinder Team drops on D Minus 1.

The Pathfinders had to dodge Flak, make their drops, consolidate, and set up their beacons for the next wave, while the German garrison troops tried to deal with French partizans bombing key installations and ambushing their patrols.

The game wound up being great fun, with the Partizans being incredibly effective (read as "lucky"), and the airborne troops taking heavy losses but completeing their missions. The German commanders did a great job in pulling their forces together, and getting them ready to repel any follow-up waves. It was quite exciting and cinematic, great job by Arb and Shawn putting everything together.
