Today we played in Bolter.p, Wrocław, PL, 2 on 2 game – building armies around Border Patrol composition from 6th edition. Each army had 500 points – it was 2000 in total on the table. We had ambitious plan to play scenario – but it will wait for better day.

– next time we should play two on two with more points, as some armies works better on more points.
– thank you guys for good time!

Wesołych Świąt Bożego Narodzenia in 2021! Czwartek, Gru 23 2021 

Hi friends!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas because God was born – in Polish it’s Wesołych Świąt Bożego Narodzenia. We live in different countries and are of different nationalities, but this is something in common for many people around the world – as Europeans are living on all the continents (both Americas, Australia, New Zealand) and we share the same Latin and Greek traditions, not to forget Ethiopians and Christians among Afro-Americans, Asians (my belowed Philippines). We are split beetwen different Christian churches – Catholic, Orthodox (they celebrates them later), Protestants and others. Some of us are atheists or agnostics or others ( I believe that God left us and he will came back), still celebrating those family Christmas.

As Christmas is typically Christian (not winter holidays as some notable people said) – I want to wish everyone happiness, health, normality, peace and wealth for every human on the Earth – for fellow Christians, Jews, Muslims, people of „The Book”, to Hinduists, Taoists, Zoroastrianists, Pagans and every other religion I might have missed! I wish everything the best for atheists!

I wish peace for Ukraine, for Persia, for Palestinians, for ppl in African countries, for all people normality from time before plandemy! I wish also normality beetwen Poland and Bialorussia and Russia – as I have Bialorussian and Russian friends and both countries can grown having normal contacts – trade, exhange, culture, traveling – my heart is warm to eastern nations!

For fellow gamers I wish painted armies, good games and international contacts!

The most beautiful Polish Christmas carol, wrote by Franciszek Karpiński, sponsored by Elżbieta Lubomirska – Polish noblewomen. This Christmas carol was created, when Commonwealth was over, divided beetwen three powerful neighbours, but will of Poles to have they country remained and she reborn 123 years later.

Germanic Christmas, my grandmother Eleonora I never meet was Austrian or German – dispute about her is a struggle beetwen my dad and his sister, anyway wish Austrians and Germans normality in they countries! Thank you Janika Gross for recommending this song 🙂 .

Russia – I have many friends who are Russians and to one I losed my heart or mind (she lives in Moscow) – wish normality for Poles and Russians beetwen our countries! Thank you Egor!

WFB 7th: Miscasts evening for everyone! Czwartek, Gru 16 2021 

Today with Alessandro we played in 7th edition of WFB – it was a struggle beetwen loyal allies Empire and Kislev and horde of greenskins from east. We played on 2250 points. We played pitched battle, bloody one.

– first turn Alessandro losed his shaman for a miscast, then in following turns I losed both of my own wizards.
– Steam Tank took 8 wounds from Giant on turn 3 or 4, anyway, I tried to play offensive.
– I know that it was stupid to take banner into light cavalry, but I love model.
– generally both sides losed so much, we didn’t count, probably something beetwen Draw to Minor Victory.
– to be sure, if you live in Wrocław or want to come there, we can play with you in WFB – we play Italian-Polish games – but we want’s there everyone who wants to play!

I wouldn listen to my Polish language or German – as it is there, or Russian – I love how those languages sounds.

Bolt Action: Talvisota #2 – fighting pockets Środa, Gru 15 2021 

Today we played second game in our Winter War campaing of 1939′ – Soviet troops were advancing into Finnland, but brave Finns were preparing ambush – Soviet troops were separated in several pockets called in Finish „motti”. Yes, you can see there one big beast – KV-1 tank – along prototypes single tank was used for tests.

Main target for Red Army was to free they units from pockets and go from one side of the table to the other along heavily forested road. Soviet tanks in pockets have fuel issues, the trucks are objectives to be destroyed by Finns.

Our sponsor is Institute of National Remembrance called shortly IPN (Instytut Pamięci Narodowej).

We played in Bolter, Wrocław, Poland – we are open to play with ppl who speak English – Germans, Russians, Czechs and everyone generally 😉 . I invited my Russian friend, but he was invited by his colleagues to a bowl.

– after all it was great to find common sense in playing again Bolt Action, as it’s really great game from Warlord Games, especially playing such events.
– for me we should remember soldiers of both sides, all the time I think that most of them could be a friends in normal times, of course we should remember who was invader and why.
– link to KV-1 I will add tomorrow.

WFB 7th: Empire and Kislev vs hungry Ogres Niedziela, Gru 12 2021 

Today we played standard pitched battle on 2000 points.

– has to paint some more infantry, war machines – for 2000 points I have too much cavalry.
– need to paint 10-15 Dwarfs, they seem to be great unit.
– thank you Kriss for great game.

Bolt Action: Talvisota – Winter War #1 Środa, Gru 8 2021 

Today in Bolter, Wrocław, PL we played first scenario covering Winter War, when Soviet Union invaded small but brave land of Finns. IPN (Instytut Pamięci Narodowej in eng. Institute of National Remembrance) took patronage over this event – here is they Wrocław page.

After taking before half of Poland IInd Republic along with Nazi Germany and Slovakia, Soviet Union turn they eyes onto Finland – sparsely populated and heavily forested country which border was 30 kilometers from Leningrad (all the time Sankt Petersburg), too close for Soviet officials – more about it here: Winter War 1939-1940.

– it was interesting battle and as part of campaing will be continued.
– Finns held Soviet advance destroying most of the vehicles.
– first game in Bolt Action for a long time of absence.
– Hope that next time will remember all names of co-players.

Some great links about Finns:
