Just updated the Army list and vehicle builder for Bolt Action.
Updates include:
Medium Armour rating now correct
Weapon listing correct for each vehicle type
Some Faction special abilities

Thanks PM, I've arranged some of my first games of VBCW with my old man using your army lists. Looking forward to rolling some dice, though I have a sneaking suspicion he has bought a Char 2C.............

Regards, TH

No problem gents, hope they are useful.
TallyHo86: let me know how you get on with your game. BTW are you using the CharB rules from the French Army list download on the Warlord site? I only ask because I added the "Huge" vehicle trait with this beasty in mind. It make it a little more survivable BUT is easier to hit!

Regards
PM

Great work there and now you have me thinking about getting Bolt Action. Is the game fun to play?

I know there are a lot of mixed feelings about the rules but I personally like them. They are reasonably simple to pick up ( a little too simple for some people) and I quite like the "order" dice rather than IGO UGO which adds a little uncertainty to things. The pinning system is good, making for some good tactical play. Close combat is totally BRUTAL with the victor totally wiping out the losing unit ( this can be easily house-ruled with some moral saves for retreating/staying in the fight etc if you prefer) and vehicle combat is also quite deadly, with lots of exploding armour!
Good tactical simulation...probably not. Good game to have with a mate....I would say yes.

Regards

I certainly enjoy it now (I wasn't impressed on the first game I played). I use two different coloured order dice per side, one for militia and another for regulars this adds a lot more fun to the game :)

PM: I don't know as yet what he is planning, or if he has the char2c or not! We like to play psychological warfare upon each other and tend not to see what each other have until we deploy it for our first game! So far I have been informed it is a 'behemoth'........I will let you know how we get on. Were due a game in August, he lives abroad so we don't get too many games in a year! Regards TH

Thanks this is just what I was looking for.

I watched a game of BA at my club (Plymouth Association of Wargamers, PAW) and instantly thought that the rules would be ideal for VBCW.

They were using 15mm figures and that is what I want to do VBCW in.

I have painted up a small BA force, early war French Senegalese Trailliers, and a Char 2C which would be great for a French Intervention force. Who would they fight for, I was thinking Anglican?
