Bolt Action – Burma 1944

This weekend the local HMGS-South group played a Bolt Action game.

The Envelopment Scenario in the Bolt Action rule book was used. It was based on the fighting around the city of Kohmia in May 1944, between the British 2nd Division and the Japanese 15th Division. The Japanese were attempting to envelop a British position and capture a road junction behind the British lines.

After six turns, a Japanese victory was declared.

Bolt Action AAR – Normandy 8 June 1944

This weekend the local HMGS-South group played a Bolt Action game.

The U.S. 116th Regimental Combat Team (RCT) is pushing west along the coast after breaking out of the Omaha beachhead. The 116th RCT commander has ordered B Company to take the German coastal artillery position outside the village of Maisy. The German artillery is shelling Allied shipping off of Utah beach and has thus far proven impossible for Allied aircraft and naval guns to destroy.
The German positions are defended by elements of the 914th Grenadier Regiment and the remains of several Ost companies.

At the end of the game (eight or nine turns) the crossroads was mostly clear of German troops, but a German half-track remained and the minefield had not been cleared.

Bolt Action AAR: Bieville – Bienville June 1944

This weekend the local HMGS-South group played a Bolt Action game.

South of Sword Beach, June 8, 1944.

The British 1 / Suffolk Regiment is advancing south toward Caen following the D Day landings. The next objective for the regiment is the twin villages of Bieville – Bienville. The 1st Platoon of ‘B’ Company is making a flanking attack against the German defenses on the outskirts of the villages. Once the defenses are overcome, the remainder of the regiment can attack the villages.

The German 736 Regiment of the 716th Division is trying to form a solid defensive line in front of Caen. The 3rd company of the regiment has been tasked with holding Bieville – Bienville. The 2nd Platoon has dug into hasty defensive positions on the outskirts of Bieville – Bienville to delay the British advance.

Although one of the three objectives was cleared of defending infantry, it was not taken by the British. A clear German victory.
