Bolt Action / Re: Escalation League Game Results
« Last post by Mean Saloney on February 15, 2018, 02:36:21 PM »
I've handed in my result to Chris so I'm going from memory here.

I'm not off to a great start, with my loss to you Matt in the first game, and two "losing" draws to Mike.

First game was at you said Matt. My Veteran platoon has not had a good time in these games. They got smoked by your SMGs first game, smoked by an assault from Mike's Commandos in my second game, and I think they just barely escaped annihilation in the third game.

Learned a lot about the game though, and my list is going to adjust pretty heavily for the next round. Need to break some FoW habits too. Six turn limit means you can't really be patient to get into a good position. Also not a big fan of indirect fire so far. Ranging in takes too long I think given the six turn limit.

This is the last week at 500 points.  I will be at the BattleStandard this week to help them out.  For this last week at 500 you guys can pick any scenario of your choice, just pare it down for a 4x4 table.  Keep track of points, and I will be posting the first score update next week!

Opponent: Bob Rioux
Date: 11 Feb 18
Mission: Top Secret
Mission Result: Stalin smiles again (Win), objective successfully extracted from the table
Units destroyed: 6 to 3:

Overall Result - Major Win

MVP votes - We did not discuss choices, but I would have voted for my SMG squad. I suspect Bob would be on board with the choice as they got the drop on one of his GI squads, killing 8 in a hail of fire (and inducing a panic check which they failed) while simultaneously securing the objective. Two turns later they had removed it from the board without taking a single casualty.

Logistics - I had both bought and painted new units in the leadup to this game, so +1 for each of those, if we are going by week, rather than point bracket.

Bolt Action / Escalation League Game Results

Figured I would start a fresh thread to collect these in.

Sean, feel free to dispute if your records disagree:

Player: Matthew Fullmer
Opponent: Mean Saloney
Date: 04 Feb 18
Mission: Key Positions
Mission Result: Stalin smiles (Win), 2 objectives taken to 1 for Sean
Units destroyed: 3 to 1:
   Sean lost a veteran squad, his HQ squad, and the 80mm mortar (to a BS lucky exceptional damage on the 1st turn of the game).
   Matt lost the flamethrower squad to overwatch from the German heroes of the haus - a squad who heroically sat still in a cabin for nearly the entire game while boldly not getting ranged in on by my mortar the entire time.

Overall Result - Major Win

MVP votes - Speaking for myself, I would vote for my SMG squad that came off of outflank reserves to obliterate Sean's vets and contributed most of the credit to taking out the HQ. 2nd choice are the stoic heroes of the haus, for boldly staying calm under depressingly little fire and then gunning down a helpless team in the open.

Logistics - I had both bought and painted new units in the leadup to this game, but as this is the 1st round, I assume they should not count for these categories.

Also Phil's 250/9 gets a nice buff with the removal of the Open topped rule. Not sure I get that one though...
 

Still can get fragged by AT weapons, that just means no autokill in assault.

The more important part I think is that it can't get pins from small arms fire.

True, But AT-Rifles, Bazookas, PIATs, Panzerfausts, and Schreks will still put a nice dent in it.
