Bolt Action Tournament - August 15th (Sat)

Postby YellowStreak on Tue May 19, 2015 4:59 am

Hi all,

This is just a post to get expressions of interest in participating in a one-day 1000 point Bolt Action day on August 15th (Sat) at the same venue as NagoyaHammer (Kanayama Nihon Tokusyutougyou Shiminkaikan) in Kanayama in Nagoya.

I'm working on a detailed player pack, but the basics are a 1000-point, 3 game event, not restricted to any specific time or theatre.

Please let me know if you are interested below, and what army/armies you'd consider bringing. I'd like to try and get a balance of Axis/Allies players if possible.

If you don't have an army, but would like to join in, please also add your name below. Teams of 2 x 500 point armies are fine, but both players need to be from the same side (Axis or Allied).

I'm in.

Given the time frame, I can bring 1000 points of:
Russian Army - early-late war.
German Grenadiers - late war.
SS Grenadiers - late war.
US Army - mid war.

And potentially:
US Airborne - late war.
British Armoured Car Squadron - late war.

Any limits on armoured platoons etc?

Probably no armoured platoons at this stage - I'm not sure if they unbalance things? (having not tried them out myself...)

That's what I figured.

Sound great..All going to plan though, I'll be in the UK for a holiday then. If something changes and I do find myself in Japan I will definitely attend. That isn't much use to you though, I know. :P

No armoured platoons means you can use the standard theatre selectors in the Russian book, which allow 1 tank and 1 armoured car per infantry platoon. You can't use the selectors from the Tank War book that was released last year.
At 1000 points you can actually get 2 inexperienced infantry platoons, thereby gaining access to two inexperienced tanks, but they'll be pinned by anything stronger than a rifle.

You at allowed to use theater selectors. You are also allowed to use two platoons, but we've decided at this time to restrict Armored Platoons and special characters.

I might also mention, Yellow-Streak has been hard at work creating themed missions and tables, so if you have a themed list that fits a certain table we'll try to give you first shot at a certain mission.

I might also mention we are trying to get some Prize support organized. At the least, I'll try to offer some BA prizes to be given out by drawing.
