Bolt Action AAR – Normandy 8 June 1944

April 10, 2016

This weekend the local HMGS-South group played a Bolt Action game.

The U.S. 116th Regimental Combat Team (RCT) is pushing west along the coast after breaking out of the Omaha beachhead. The 116th RCT commander has ordered B Company to take the German coastal artillery position outside the village of Maisy. The German artillery is shelling Allied shipping off of Utah beach and has thus far proven impossible for Allied aircraft and naval guns to destroy.
The German positions are defended by elements of the 914th Grenadier Regiment and the remains of several Ost companies.

At the end of the game (eight or nine turns) the crossroads was mostly clear of German troops, but a German half-track remained and the minefield had not been cleared.

Space Hulk AAR – The Sequel

November 29, 2015

This weekend the local HMGS-South group played a second game of Space Hulk, continuing from the previous mission.

After returning to the battle barge, sensors detected the telemetry from the two marines with faint life signs deeper inside the ship. A rescue mission was quickly planned to locate and recover the two marines if their condition was viable. If not, cleanse and protect the gene-seed.

This weekend the local HMGS-South group played a game of Space Hulk. The mission for the Space Marines was to find an artifact at the far end of the table and return it to one of the entry points. First edition (1989) rules were used, with a few additions from the expansions.

There were only four marine survivors, and the artifact was not recovered. A complete Genestealer victory.

Bolt Action AAR: Bieville – Bienville June 1944

October 10, 2015

This weekend the local HMGS-South group played a Bolt Action game.

South of Sword Beach, June 8, 1944.

The British 1 / Suffolk Regiment is advancing south toward Caen following the D Day landings. The next objective for the regiment is the twin villages of Bieville – Bienville. The 1st Platoon of ‘B’ Company is making a flanking attack against the German defenses on the outskirts of the villages. Once the defenses are overcome, the remainder of the regiment can attack the villages.

The German 736 Regiment of the 716th Division is trying to form a solid defensive line in front of Caen. The 3rd company of the regiment has been tasked with holding Bieville – Bienville. The 2nd Platoon has dug into hasty defensive positions on the outskirts of Bieville – Bienville to delay the British advance.

Although one of the three objectives was cleared of defending infantry, it was not taken by the British. A clear German victory.

Bolt Action – Normandy 1944

This weekend the local HMGS-South group played a Bolt Action game. German forces defend three objectives against a British assault. The terrain table was by Real Terrain.

Elements of the British 185th Brigade push south toward Caen from Sword Beach just after D-Day on June 8th 1944. The Germans are troops from the 716th Infantry Division.

British infantry on the left clear one objective of defenders, but the attack in the center fails as most of the infantry and both British tanks are eliminated.

The Allied objective was to take both villages. The French objective was to drive the Allies from the field. When the game was ended due to time, neither side had achieved their objectives.
