Eurobash 2015 - Bolt Action, Shav's way.
« on: May 17, 2015, 05:51:53 PM »
On Sundaymorning, after a healthy 3 hours sleep, it was time for the much anticipated Bolt Action RPG lead by Shavixmir.

The set-up was that four players were to lead their 5 men squds on a raid into a German command post in 1944 Normandy. Le Boche was holding a French intelligence officer there who was about to tell all he knew.

The antagonists:

Commandant - leading with Irish swagger, his secret objective was to keep an eye on one of the other players.
Henerius - tasked with the summary execution of Captain LeFrog should he start talking, or be re-captured by the Germans.
Midaski - a man on a mission from SOE to root out the traitor amidst the plucky Anglo Irish Dutch Airborne.
Philby - the consumnate traitor, who somehow avoided suspicion. Even with a name like that.

So, under cover of darkness, the assault force split up, with second lieutenant Commandant taking his troops to the far side of the board.
Midaski lead the way on the other side, probing for the much hated Germans. His lads hauled a dingy with them.
First lieutenant Henerius assumed overall command and positioned a fire base to cover three seperate fire lanes.

The German guards were patrolling near the bridges, but through the mist and the darkness a Tiger showed his colours.
Midaski was not impressed with the dodgy intelligence and launched his dingy and ordered his men to row for dear life.
Henerius again positioned his men skilfully and Philby ordered his men into position.

The Tiger spotted the section and opened fire, killing three and causing the rest to flee. What a poor position, almost as if they were meant to be seen by the steel monster...

Commandant scouted out a location across the command post, placed his men and executed a txt book fire assault on the two guards. Down they went, and up the alarm went.
From his position, Commandant ordered the assault, charging straight into a German machine gun nest. The baffled Germans missed, and the plucky Airborne sought cover.

Out of the darkness Philby ran towards the Tiger, placing a satchel charge on the beast. Before Jerry could react, Philby ran away 12", into the cover of darkness and placing a healthy amount of Airborne between him and the tank.
Like Corporal Jones said: they don't like it stuck up them, and the Tiger exploded, lighting up the area.

Henerius and Midaski were engaged with fire and movement, killing bewildered Germans and providing covering fire.
Midsski commandeered a Hanomag, and with support from Henerius, the Germans surrendered. Captain LeFrog was free!

New orders came in to destroy German artillery who wete shelling allied shipping.

After a hasty exfiltration, Commandant placed two men with Henerius while he and three men donned German uniforms. The Hanomag was searched, discovering papers...and an explosive charge!
Philby was tasked with removal of the charge, but unfortunately the charge went off, destroying the Hanomag and alerting nearby Germans.

Confusion erupted when Lt. Midaski suddenly cried out that Henerius was a traitor, calling for his surrender. Henerius was having none of it and Midaski brought his stengun to bear, wounding Henerius.
Midaski was overcome, landing him in chains... Now a lowly POW, he plotted to turn the tables!

Henerius was sure Captain LeFrog would be retaken by the now alerted Boche and executed the frog eating Frenchman.

Our heroic tale does not end there, as Commandant valiantly approached a German sniperteam, trying to fool them. The Germans opened fire, causing Commandant to "surrender".
Meanwhile, Philby also approached the Germans and revealed his true colours as an officer of the Abwehr!
Commandant and his squad were arrested by Jerry. As the Germans are very methodical, everybody was arrested and moved to the German HQ.

Midaski tried to assure the Airborne of his attention, but alas.

Commandant tried to discredit Philby, but alas.

Henerius tried to keep Midaski in check, and do battle with the Germans, but alas.

Will our heroic Airborne save the day? Will Philby get his due? Will Commandant be able to confuse Jerry with his gift of the gab?

 :eusa_wall:


Philby played his final card: revealing to the Germans that Commandant was actually Lieutenant Goldstein!
The Germans immediately seized the poor Jewish lieutenant and propped him up against the wall, ready to have their way with him.

Commandant's troopers assaulted poor Philby and duly strangled him to within an inch of his life. The three brave men were duly gunned down.

Henerius battled with the Germans, preventing a disaster. Skillful posititioning his men, they formed a defensive parameter, unknowing of Commandant's fate...

Our intrepid Irish lieutenant then showed his mettle: hastily exposing himself to the Germans, showing a distinct lack of circumcision...


And with that, we leave our brave Airborne...will we pick up their tale in 2016?




Well played, lieutenant Goldstein, well played.
To betray, you must first belong.

Yes!
Next year the saga continues: Force 10 from Sint-Niklaas.
Will Commandante's penis save him from Stalag 14 (Schloss Frustuck internment camp)?
Will Henerius and Midaski make up and cuddle?
Will the strangulation of Philby leave permanent bruising?

But yeah... Midaski pulling the gun on Henerius (on evidence as flimsy as the script they were following) and Commandante pulling his 'gun' was hilarious.

Well done chaps.

I believe that the penis of 1st lieutenant Adair [Commandant] convinced the Germans which he was in fact a German officer and the dead traitor was lying.   I doubt there will be any internment camp.


Also opposed leadership roles between Henny's sargent and mine were much fun.   He rolled a 3 to convince my sargent that Madiski was not a traitor and well lets just say that Ulster men and unionists are not easily convinced of anything.

A three-way strangulation a dead German officer does not always make...
8 inches of persuasion not always internment deters.
