On Thursday I went to Hugh Wilson’s for our big game which was a 1914 Bolt Action game. Colin Jack came up with the scenario which was a French attack during the Battle of the Frontiers. Colin, Dave O’Brien and I supplied the figures whilst Hugh Wilson provided all the terrain.

The French artillery acted like a death ray at first but was then hit by an off table bombardment which effected them for several moves. The aggressive French attack at the northern end of the table went well but at my southern end my force was cut to pieces by the German defenders losing 80% of my infantry.
