2019 Bolt Action League Rules

Recommended Posts

 Burk and I managed to get a game today (Sunday). Was great for both sides, several new situations came up that we muddled through, which was fine for learning the game. 

Take away was a fun game and an agreement that the rulebook is poorly laid out. Everything seems to be covered in it but in hard to find places. I would call it unintuitive. Still fun though!

Remember those order tests are key!

Good game last night between @Burk and myself. Lots of good turns, back and forth momentum throughout. 

Burk, your question on calculating cover I got wrong. Cover is applied to all shots based on if at least 50% of target unit is obscured to at least 50% of firing unit. So the modifier applies to all shots of the unit rather than individual models, unlike range which is by model.

700 points and the tanks are rolling...I don't even think I have one put together for my DAK yet.... yikes

Eh, we played at 800 points. Next table over had a Hetzer and an M10 (M10 died to the opening shot of the game, but the vet US army came back for a strong showing).  IMO, my M4 was my MVP (mobile armored machine gun fortress) despite not firing the main cannon all game and failing an order test at one point.

Awesome. Who won?

US Army managed to thin out the horde at range despite a few critical setbacks and bunkered in their own deployment to win. Inexperienced Russian infantry was a significant factor, forcing Scott to hunt for 7's a lot more often than I was and his mortar only managed to hit once in the game.  

That said, it almost went the other way when my infantry completely whiffed at unloading on a 4-man SMG-wielding anti-tank squad early game. Fortunately, I got 1st-dice for turns 2-4 despite being outnumbered almost 2:1 on order dice early on.
