Bolt Action – Edson’s Ridge

This weekend the local HMGS-South group played a Bolt Action game.  The scenario was based on the second night of the Battle of Edson’s Ridge, which occurred on the night of 13-14 September 1942. The ridge was part of the defenses of Henderson Field, Guadalcanal. This game involved the position of the 1st Marine Raider Battalion, attacked by Kokusho’s and Tamura’s battalions of the Japanese 124th Infantry Regiment.

  1. Pretty cool, good looking, and ended pretty much like its real-life counterpart. But don’t forget the Parachute Battalion (on the Marine far left) and the Engineers (on the Marine far right)! 😉


    1. The people who set up the scenario told us about those units. They defined the limits of the position to be defended. We would have needed more figures, more space and more time to include the entire ridge.
