After a great game today, we discussed the idea of a league running instore.

Bolt Action games against a paired opponent from within the league.
Games will be played within a two week window.

Each player will stick to a single army theme throughout the league i.e US Marines.

This will be is a great entry point for new players as well as generating more games for us who have played Bolt Action before.

The plan is to begin week 1 with a 500pt list that each player will then add 250pts to their previous list every 2 rounds.

Round 1- 500 points
Round 2- 500 points
Round 3- 750 points
Round 4- 750 points
Round 5- 1000 points
Round 6- 1000 points
Round 7- 1250 points
Round8-1250 points

We will do 8 rounds, so that each player will play the 8 players from the opposing side.

Each round will have a set mission drawn from the various books.

Games to be Axis VS Allies wherever possible, so if you have Axis and Allied forces it would be ideal if you can sign up with both for maximum flexibility.

At the end of the league, we will do a large finale game on a Saturday

A league like this relies on the participants making their best effort to play their games and commit, do please bear that in mind!

If you are interested, please post on here and include your force.

TOTAL PARTICIPANTS- 16

Axis Participants

Jack Penn [Bulgarians]
Jack Rhodes [Germans- Mixture of Fallschirmjager and Heer]
Steve and Hayden [Japanese]
Nobby [German- Holding the west wall selector]
Lewis [Japanese]
Mike Hummel [German- Defense of Italy]
Andy [German]
Paul [German]

Allied Participants

Pete [US ]
Barney [Russians]
Kelvin [British]
Sam [British]
Nelly [SAS]
Rayner [Russians]
Jack Hunter [Brits]
Nich [Finns]

Please submit your games in this thread

Games not played within their window will be awarded as a draw if a valid reason is provided.

Any other results will be awarded by the independent judge (Hammy) based on the circumstances provided.

Cheers for the game today guys. Awesome fun! 4 player epic with Lewis, Mike and Jack!

Axis Participants:
Possibly Germans... have the units and half track from D-Day Firefight. Will need to build and purchase additional if I'm fielding this.
Can I get back to you? 🙂

Allied Participant:
USA... probably US Marines unless I decide to build them as Western Front summer guys...

Now this looks a cracking idea.

I have a German Fallschirmjaeger Army ready to go. I'm strongly looking at an Allied Army to compliment the league to be able to play both sides to ensure a blue on red game. Looking at either a British Royal Marine Commando force or US Army Rangers.....

Exciting times chaps

If all ok with the shop I put forward a suggestion for a Saturday hobby day to get some serious Bolt Action building of forces going and to help chaps new to the game and the hobby. That includes some Airbrush work as well on vehicles or base coating whole units.

Pete great to see you diving in boots and marines into Bolt Action. On your German side. To start with I would suggest adding the new German Late War Grenadiers plastic boxset to your starter army contingent. Lots of very nice weapons such as the Stg 44 Assault rifles. A medium German mortar is always a good addition. Id stick with that a nd perhaps add vehicles or armour such as a Puma or a StuG at a later date. Happy to answer any questions you may have on German formations.

Hi all.

Would love to take part. Im sure you have all seen me kicking around in the shop with my two minions on a Saturday.

If nobody objects I would like to sign up Little Jack and his Germans to join the Mighty Axis and myeslf, team "Daddy and Hayden" to join the Allies with British.

Not a problem if players would rather not have the two minions playing. If you do have reservations and dont wish to air them publicly just drop Jack a private message.

Cheers,

Steve
