Bolt Action tournaments are coming in thick and fast – here are three more to put in your diary!

Secrets of the Nazi gold

Contact: Matt Walford
What: Bolt Action tournament
When: 29th June
Where: Stafford Games

Details: War rages and the Soviet Red Army are closing on the German capital. Hermann Goering has ordered that 18 boxes of Nazi gold, worth nearly a billion pounds, be thrown in Stolpsee Lake, about an hour’s drive north of Berlin. Will the Allies be able to stop them before the gold, which could help rebuild a devastated Europe, is lost forever?

The Cobridge Old Contemptables will be holding a Bolt Action tournament on Saturday the 29th of June. The event will be held at Stafford Games (just off J14 M6). There are 36 places available.

There will be 4 scenarios throughout the day, starting at 1000hrs and finishing around 1700hrs. Players will need to bring a 750pt list and a 1,000pt list. The cost is £10 per ticket, the price includes refreshments and lunch. There will be a best painted army competition as well as other prizes.

Tickets are available here.
