1879 is a VSF game where Brits have gone through a gate and found a new world. Unfortunately for them, ancient Mesopotamians had gone through thousands of years before. In that time they develop science (rail-gun rifles) and dark magic (zombies). I really can't say the rules are OK or not. I only had two units and a hero vs. two units (one Zombie) and two heroes. Since there were only two units per side and I had initiative I pulled a fast one. He set up one on his right, I set up one near the middle. Then he set up on one his left and I put one on my right near the other unit. This let me take on each unit one at time.
I know that Bolt Action has been out for a while, but this is the first time I played it. Me and two others where on the British side, and faced a father and son team on the German side. On the Brits left were a Matilda I, a Stuart, an A-10, PIAT team, and two squads of foot infantry. The Germans had a three mechanized infantry squads (two in half-tracks and one that could use a truck) Sd. Kfz. 222, a Panzer II a captured A-10 (Beute Panzerkampfwagen), a Panzer IV, a PanzerJager I and a Tiger!!!
