And Finally the game!

Great Photo by Eli!
Finally the game arrived and it was great fun! Eli provided all the Marines annd Big John and I provided the Japanese. So in summary, Flame Tanks are just ugly, Banzai attacks are awesome and the US move and shot with no penalty is a kicker! I am very pumped up to buy more figs and build more terrain! And what a bunch of fun guys to game with!

3 hours to go and the last bit of Terrain is done!

Got home at 10:30 last night and started working on the last pieces of Terrain. My wonderful wife stayed up and knocked out a quick MMG unit for the game. Then this morning they were all finished up!

I see a lot of bunker buidling in the future!

Bunker, JR miniatures I believe.

Some Pacific Bolt Action coming next week.

Well we set the date, Oct 13, for our first Pacific Bolt Action game. Of course I'm busting butt to get as much ready as possible! Minis are done, West Wind and some Battle Honours Japanese. Eli has had his Marines done for over a month or two. This is the first of my generic landing craft. And some of the West Wind Japanese. (Thanks to Robert Brightwell for the landing craft guide: http://dspaintingblog.blogspot.com/2008/09/higgins-boat.html)

I'll post more pics of the terrain as I knock it out this week.
