Bolt Action: Armies of the Soviet Union
Look what arrived in the post yesterday. Salute, the massive London Wargames convention, was last weekend so all our pre-order books also got shipped just before they were packed up to go. These days, my orders from the UK seem to be arriving in four, or so, days. Pretty impressive. What's more impressive though is the book and the free mini I got for pre-ordering. What I have really liked about BA is that the core statlines are so simple but I was impressed with how small additions to the Soviet list have made a real difference - both in units that needed it (SU-76/ZIS-3) and in some of my favourite units....
First up though: the free miniature. It is surprisingly hard to buy a single 28mm Soviet flag guy. So I am pretty pleased to get this as a bonus for a book I'd have been getting regardless!
That's not really a 'review' of the book - more a set of impressions but I can't wait to try some of the new stuff on the table.
