A beautiful set up. I love those paint jobs.

Did it take much to modify the Bolt Action rules for WW1?

Vinnie said...

Thanks Andy,

No there was a download you can obtain from the internet. We just used the weapon ranges as the Army lists were for late war. A few house modifications was all we needed and it played very well.

Stunning pictures! Beautiful figures, I especially like cavlary, machine guns vignettes and Tirailleurs Sénégalais...superb!

Steven Williams said...

Superb table and miniatures! Nice to see a green WW1 table.

Doc Smith said...

Early war action - love it! Beautiful table as usual. You've inspired me to get the lead out and do my early war Germans and Belgians.

Vinnie said...

Thanks for the great comments Phil, Steven and Doc. WW1 Early war is something you do not see much off and there were some massive battles during the first coupe of months of the war.

What an absolutely superb lot of figures...not to mention the terrain! Wonderful!

William Stewart said...

Yes a great looking game! If you don't mind me asking, what manufacture are the French colonial figures?

Also, would you mind sharing your house modifications for Bolt Action?

Thanks for an inspirational presentation.

Lovely stuff! I finished reading The Guns of August a few weeks ago and your set-up looks like it could've come straight from the pages of the book.

Vinnie said...

Thanks again everyone for the fantastic comments. I am sorry I have not written an after Action Report as I just have not had the time this week....I started a new job and it keeps me fairly busy.

All the best

What a fantastic looking game! WW1 certainly has quite a special appeal all of its own.

Vinnie said...

Thanks Moiterei it sure does. I particularly like the early period.
