Bolt Action desert dust-up

A tranquil desert scene

Some belated photos from my first game of Bolt Action two against Ronald.  For a twist I took my Chain of Command(CoC) Desert British while Ronald to move his late war fallshcrimjaeger to mid war desert. Interestingly for me was the need bulk up my CoC, to make up the points pretty much anything with paint was used.

Game wise the game was great. BA2 is better than the previous iteration not a major change but better.  The Officers and the MGs feel a little better. I do not think it is in the same league as CoC but they different mindset BA2 is very strong on list building while CoC is more narrative driven.
