Bolt Action at Dragonfire

So we had a very memorable game of Bolt Action on Saturday 10th August 2013.
It was roughly 6000 points a side, between German and Soviets.
The forces were basically all we had between 4 or 5 people.
Germans were 54 order dice, Soviets were 72 order dice!

The table prior to any deployments:

Most of the German forces set out:

Look - it's the man with a plan!
 Soviets busy unpacking.

Nothing disrupts the Soviets plans like making the tow for the gun "Go Down". Next turn I popped the T-34 with my Tiger. The Soviets used the T-34's as tows, because we don't have enough other trucks etc.....yet.
 The grinder of a battle in the forest. Trees removed for figure placement.

 Told you it was a grinder of a battle. This is two turns later. Reinforcements arriving....

Pak-40 in the town. Alas, it got to the point that it was out of range of any viable targets.

In the end, the Soviets won the game. Main reason we ran out of time. In future, a game this size needs to be run over two days.

It was a good game, but all it would have taken was another turn or two, and the German's would have had the game.

Thanks must go to all who supplied models, and awesome terrain, and great (and sporting) generalship.
