Rusty hosted me for a small game of Bolt Action. I've been playing some Black Powder Pike and Shotte plus really like Black Powder Last Argument of Kings for larger AWI games. He plays in 20mm rather than in 28mm. His game house is a converted detached garage on his property. Between the two of us, we have become the "Southern Dominion" of war gaming spots in the DFW area. His collection is outstanding, his gaming area is outstanding and he's a great host! He lives approximately 7 minutes from my home in Red Oak. This is serendipitous! I do like 20mm for this rules set as well. I can use 1/76 scale vehicles, support and aircraft. Most 1/76 models are less expensive than larger scales. I also like AB 20mm figures. I've painted them before. Exquisite models. Well...on to the game. Do I like Bolt Action? Yes!!! It's simple to learn, fun to play and gets to the brass knuckles quickly and to a conclusion in an evening's game. I'm sure there's warts but on first blush, I'm buying these rules. Just keep those Japanese and Marines away from my checkbook!
