The Germans have pushed further into the Midlands and now threaten Nottingham! – Let’s take a look at just one of the action packed scenario’s to be found in the Operation Sea Lion part 2 Campaign: Gigant book!
As you’ll discover, the Campaign: Gigant supplement expands on the Sea Lion invasion with a successful glider assault. This scenario follows the fortunes of Kampfgruppe West in its attempts to fight its way through the Nottingham road network after an unfortunate navigational error caused by the decidedly unsporting locals removing all the road signs!
It should be played as a full-sized battle game. Scenario 7: Envelopment from the Bolt Action rulebook is perfect for this action, or players could look at Battle Scenario: Capture a Port from the Operation: Sea Lion supplement for ideas. The Germans are the attacker.
Be sure to make the map, very, very urban!
At the end of the game calculate which side has won by adding up victory points as follows. If one side scores at least 2 more victory points than the other then that side has won a clear victory. Otherwise, the result is deemed too close to call and honours are shared – a draw! Players score 1 victory point for every enemy unit destroyed.
The attacker scores 1 victory point for every enemy unit destroyed. He also scores 2 victory points for each of his own units that are inside the defender’s set-up area (even if only partially), and 3 victory points for each of his own units that have moved off the enemy table edge before the end of the game.
The defender scores 2 victory points for every enemy unit destroyed.
