Did you take any pictures of the event?YellowStreak wrote:Went and played some Bolt Action at the Frontline Games (http://frontline-games.com/) open day near Dallas on the weekend. The mini-tournament they had running used a 'fog-of-war' condition that meant every table had 2 special order dice in the bag (different colour to the ones the players were using) and when these 2 dice were drawn, the turn ends immediately. It really led to some interesting game play and forced some tactical decisions you wouldn't normally have to make when you're confident all your stuff will get to activate. I'd recommend giving it a try if you're playing BA.
I was also speaking to the head of Warlord in the US for a bit, and he mentioned that the next big supplement for BA will be the Korean War. He's helping write the book, so we had an interesting discussion on the differences from WW2 and the similarities (given it was only 5 years after WW2).
I'd seen some scuttlebutt on the Warlord Forums about the Korean War. I must say I'm surprised. How will they ever be able to keep up a steady stream of German plastic box sets, while ignoring pretty much every other nation in the conflict for Korea? It'll totally mess with Warlord's business model.
Seriously though, I'm not even halfway done with collecting/painting/playing WW2 yet. I guess that some folk will have an interest in the Korean War, but for me it just means less releases for WW2. I do have an interest in A Korean War, but one involving a lot less rifles & tanks and more swords & muskets. The only thing I know about the Korean War is that the American 4077th took part.
Sigh, I'm probably going to end up with a huge army of North Koreans, aren't I?
#edit# - On the other hand, perhaps Sarissa will produce Korean buildings suitable for a range of eras.
