Zaichata Squads

    A zaichata squad in Bolt Action consists of two inexperienced snipers, nicknamed зайчата (young hare) and a master sniper, who tried to teach them the skills in order to survive as a sniper. Many zaichata didn't and perished within their first weeks of combat.

   I had a sniper from the "Red Army" box of 23 metal miniatures and the free miniature of "Campaign Stalingrand" book, both products of Warlord Games and four Soviet snipers of Black Tree Design. 

   I used all six of them to build two zaichata squads. I chose again the "amoeba" camo as I did for my assault engineers. Below you can see the result.

   Meanwhile due to the pandemic, my wife and I spent many weekends in our house experiencing new recipes. One such recipe is the "Athinaiki", which is cold fish boneless covered with mayonnaise, carrots and pickles.   


Our cat really liked it!

   That's it for today! Stay tuned for more!

    1. Michael, you can find the rules in the "Stalingrad" rulebook!

    2. Thank you, I hadn't realised that there was a separate campaign book, which I have now ordered.
