Gods of War: Togo – Bolter event on 25.03 Środa, Mar 29 2023 

On last Saturday in Bolter we had event organized by „Torgill” – Maciej Molczyk in system developed by GM Boardgames – company from Wrocław, Poland. They have two great systems I had possibility to own Gods of War: General Lee and Gods of War: Togo.

So it was – I had three great games before I went to my another birthday party, great time spend with several admirals including Torgill with whom I played our first game in Togo ever. If you want to ask any questions about Gods of War: Togo – here you can try to find answer – they Facebook profile.

So it begun!

From Torgill – GM Boardgames – organiser of this event:

– it was great to play my first tournament in Togo with many great people, wish to play again and one more time I had to do list before event, mines were waiting and did critical job.
– thank you Maciej for patience, but this time as I was a little bit late, I had to talk with my great neighbour and go back home for token orders.

Polish TV used it for one programme – „Morze”.

Chain of Command: Barbarossa 1941′ – „Secure a bridge” Środa, Mar 29 2023 

Today I played my first game in Chain of Command (CoC) with Kris in Wrocław Bolter. It was nice game in system which is at some points similar to Sharp Practice which is also from Too Fat Lardies, but during Napoleonic/American Civil War era.

We played a battle for bridge in the are of pre-war Polish Wohlyn (Wołyń) – there was objective in the middle – a bridge allowing trucks and wheeled vehicles to move without problems. German Fallschirmjäger (paratroopers) had to secure it and Soviet Russia had to blow it up or at least held enemy away on the other side.

– similarities to Sharp Practice are well visible, jet only similarities.
– it was my first game, hopefully not last, still learning it.
– it was great game, moving patrols is important to create deployment zone, vehicles starts on the road, soldiers cannot shoot stayin behing they friends and probably some more things I don’t know now. Need to play more games, to know such things.

Compared to Bolt Action:
– it’s just different and I can say that I like both systems.
– big plus is that models from ‚Bolt Action’ can be used in ‚Chain of Command’.
– don’t be affraid to jump from one ruleset to another, I like both – one from Warlord Games and other one from TooFatLardies.

Team Yankee: Go West Czwartek, Mar 23 2023 

Today I played with Generał on smaller points around 50 to 60. Most time we were looking in rulebook as last time we played together around three years ago and it was my last game, jet in last 10 months I bought two books to my small force – Soviet Union army book and rulebook.

– it was great game and we agreed that we should read rules and also to check other set up of rules.
– thank you Generał for great time in Bolter.
– I know that I will add some more things to my force, to have battle group on 100 points.
– as we hate parkings our tanks were moving as they should move in real battle, not side by side.

Bolt Action: Banzai charge in Manchuria Środa, Mar 22 2023 

Today we played with Łukasz a game on 1,000 points. We used rules for Juggernaut with one exception – bamboo armed soldiers of Japanese Imperial army weren’t limited. We had village with some houses, some walls and some almost open terrain on left and right flanks.

– great game and I’m pretty sure that bamboo spearmen army can be much better with some more technical stuff like tank, armoured car, sniper, unit of cavalry – not only bamboo spearmens..

Napoleonic wars: Russian officer Wtorek, Mar 21 2023 

One more to join General d’Armee/Napoleonic era/ and at the end Black Powder.

Gods of War: Togo – on a way to Tsushima Poniedziałek, Mar 20 2023 

Today with Duderson we played in Bolter bigger game on 2,000 points per side, I had Russian fleet composed of Borodino, Varyag, Aurora, Novik, Ushakov and two squads of Buynyi destroyers – two on one base. My oponent has Japanese fleet composed of Mikasa, Niitaka, Izumu, Skikishima, Takachiho and one squad of Hayabusa torpedo boats. We played scenario number one – line battle with exiting on the opposite corner of the table. So it begun with setting our fleets on the table.

– next time I should avoid mines, I tried to clear them, but without success, so I losed Aurora and Novik on minefield, Borodino and Varyag were heavily damaged because of them.
– we have plans to play big game again 🙂 .
– thank you Duderson for great game.
– in case of result, it was achievement on the level of Tsushima for Japanese.

Stopping ship or warship weren’t simple, it was time costing opearation involving many people.

Middle-Earth SPG – Helm’s Deep/Helmowy Jar Niedziela, Mar 19 2023 

I think it was on the beginning of February – first Saturday when before I had some issues with my health and at the end I was sick at home office work for one week, felt great and then finally after weekend went to doctor and got some antibiotics. At least during weekend when everything was good with me we managed to play with Łukasz siege of Helms Deep. I took much more photos and after looking on them I left only small gallery. Finally Sauruman servants blowed up wall as in the movie, but didn’t went to the main bastion.

Myślę, że było to na początku lutego – pierwsza sobota kiedy przed miałem trochę problemów z zdrowiem i będąc chorym pracowałem z domu przez jeden tydzień, poczułem się lepiej przed weekendem by w ostateczności pójść do doktora po antybiotyk. Przynajmniej w trakcie weekendu wszystko był w porządku i udało nam się zagrać z Łukaszem szturm na Helmowy Jar. Zrobiłem o wiele więcej zdjęć, ale po tym jak je przejrzałem zostawiłem tylko małą galerię. Ostatecznie słudzy Saurumana wysadzili kawałek muru jak w filmie, ale nie byli w stanie dostać się do głównego bastionu.

Fallout Wasteland Warfare – On way to pre-war factory Sobota, Mar 18 2023 

After last session we failed and our team spend several weeks in the safe vault, but afterward reading some old book they realized that there is some pre-war factory which was supplying military. Maybe some stuff is still untouched? Today we played cooperative game against the game in team of four: Ola, Łukasz, Paweł and me.

– really good game with RPG aspect, I know it will be even better with each following game.
– there are not many people who play Fallout Wasteland Warfare or probably I don’t know them.
– good Saturday time spend in Bolter.

So after once more finishing Witcher 3 I will go back to Fallout New Vegas.

Gods of War: Togo – Battle in island archipelago Piątek, Mar 17 2023 

Today we played with Łukasz in Bolter on 1200 points. We used many great terrains I bought from Klaudia – she do a great job in many different scales for different systems. Probably we used too many terrains, but we wanted to see them on the table. So we started – probably my 10th game and Łukasz 2nd, I’m still learning, but at least know rules to the level I can play.

– this time Russia won against Japanese.
– great game with many beautiful terrains, which will be avaible only for Togo in Bolter.
– Togo – one of the systems I get in on 2022′ – one of the best systems I meet from GM Boardgames avaible in Bolter
– I’m pretty sure English version of rules is coming soon.
