More wooden fences

    Fences are very useful terrain pieces in wargames. In Bolt Action in particular, wooden fences provide soft cover to infantry squads so it is nice to have a sufficient amount of them.


   Fences are very easy to make. I used balsa wood, white glue, putty, sand and some little rocks. I made three different types of wooden fences.

Fences A

Fences B

Fences C

and our cat!

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

Bolt Action Soviet Mortars

   There are three different types of mortars in Bolt Action: the light, the medium and the heavy mortars. The light mortars are team weapons of two men, the medium of three and the heavy of four. If mortars are not inexperienced then they can have a spotter. Sometimes mortars can be game changers, especially the heavy ones. During world war two, Stalin called artillery and mortars the "Gods of War"! 

   I bought all three Soviet mortar models of the Warlord Games, the 50mm light mortar, the 82mm medium mortar and the 120mm heavy mortar.

The Soviet mortars

   I used pieces from the Tamiya brick wall set to give cover to my light mortar.

This is the definition of "hard cover"

   As a spotter I use the radio operator of my soviet forward observation team.

   Lately, I finish my posts with a photo of a dish. In order to keep this tradition, please see below the photo of the Cretan beef stifado, which is beef stew with onions. Delicious! 

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