US Paras Surprise German Bridge Guards
Bolt Action: Normandy Paratroop Assault Games

The Skirmish Group continued its series of Bolt Action Normandy games this month, with two giant paratroop assault games. One had British paras conducting a glider assault on Pegasus Bridge, while the second table focused on the US sector, with the paras trying to secure a vital bridge and a small crossroads village to block German reinforcements.

Both games were incredibly close - the British Paras made it onto Pegasus Bridge, and destroyed the initial German relief attempts, but were eventually overwhelmed and forced back from the bridges. The Americans narrowly won their table, managing to kill General Dollman with a bazooka shot, and were securely holding the town and tenuously holding the bridge at the end of the game.

Some beautiful looking games, with cool special rules and some great fun!
