Welcome to my strange alternative world of wargaming with toy soldiers: a game for boys from twelve years of age to one hundred and fifty and for that more intelligent sort of girl who likes boys' games and books (HG Wells, Little wars)

Bolt Action - Deep in the Jungle
I was horribly disorganised for a Pacific game of Bolt Action this week with Andy Singleton's American Marines in the Marquis pub. We had arranged 1000pts but I could only find half my army so I plonked down about 750 and Andy kindly let me be the defender.
Above my loyal troops are getting ready to die for the Emperor.
The battle raged and I killed Andy's howitzer with a single lucky mortar shell but things started to go wrong and my Ha Go took a 75mm armour piercing through the tinfoil masquerading as its frontal armour.I moved up to reclaim the initiative with a full Banzai charge.
And was met by a hail of fire which gunned down my entire left wing and all the suicide bombers on the right wing - who never got near the Sherman. I lost six units in a single turn.
