A Bolt Action WW2 game with a Japanese force attacking American Marines that were helped out by some Chindits!
Based on "Ginsling", a game that David found in an old Wargames Illustrated. This saw the Japanese on the attack through what is essentially a bunch of islands connected by some bridges. The Japanese have managed to capture some US landing craft to assist them in landing on these island areas.
Figures from David, Richard and Gavin's collections Most of the terrain from David with me and Richard adding in a couple of things.
|The first wave of landings.|
|The Japanese take their first objective, the Airfix control tower.|
|The second wave landing near the port.|
|Things were looking good until the Sherman turned up!|
|David's home made order dice.|
|Last stand of the Japanese on this part of the island.|
The other game was a 7YW game using some of Chris's awesome collection. Victory to the Prussians I think, but I could be wrong!
|Austrians awaiting the attack.|
|Seamus contemplates his next move.|
|Near the end of the game.|
There were a couple of other demo games on too
A modern skirmish game that looked fantastic with some beautiful looking figures that attracted a lot of interest from the many people passing by.
|I really liked the look of these palm trees.|
Here are a few more photos of Richard's troops from the Bolt Action game.
