This is Tommy.
Tommy is at war with Jerry. Tommy is a lieutenant, ready to give his all for King and Country. Unfortunately for Tommy, Jerry is shooting at him with an MG42 forcing our beleaguered Tommy to lie on his tummy and hide behind this lowly rock. Tommy is cursing the fact that he's armed only with a bloody Webley that can't reach Jerry and his MG42.
Today is a bad day for Tommy...
lol, and thus I foolishly delve once more into the game of Bolt Action (and this time, with actual humans!). I blame this latest foray on The National WWII Museum that we recently visited in New Orleans a few weeks back. It was a bit pricey to visit, but nonetheless I highly recommend it! We spent easily half a day of our very limited time in NOLA there and in all honesty were it just me, I'd have probably spent the entire day wandering it's halls and exhibits.
So back on topic, I've been wanting once again to buy/build/paint MOAR Bolt Action minis. However at the same time I'm well aware that I'll likely not play BA anytime soon (if ever), especially as I've never been all that thrilled with the Bolt Action ruleset (1st. ed., I haven't played the current edition).
I've limited my self to a mere 12 minis, along with stealing a tank (and I use that term loosely) from my Quar. Clocking in at a grand total of 250 points, hopefully this little contingent for will scratch the itch without getting too costly.
Given that I recently only managed 8 painted minis for my Smurfs before wandering off, a dozen infantrymen and a tank seemed like a good, manageable goal to set for myself. Also were I actually to play, 250pts. is an easy number to latch onto somebody else's army like some sort of little allied barnacle.
