Normandy Assault D-DAY Bolt Action Special Scenario – Smokin In Style BBQ; Hot Springs, AR, USA
June 9, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm BST
“You are about to embark on the great crusade toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle.”
General Dwight D. Eisenhower
On the morning of June 6th 1944 at 0631 hours the largest and possibly the most important coastal landing in human history code named Operation Overlord took place along a large stretch of French coastline. Over 150,000 American, British, Canadian and other Allied souls spent their blood, sweat, and tears on that overcast summer morning to begin the final fight that would see the end of Adolf Hitler’s rule over Europe and the reign of terror that had thus cost the lives of millions on three continents over the previous 6 years.
We at Spa City Wargamers have a very strong affinity for Bolt Action by Warlord Games and the appreciation to history this game can bring. In that light we are pleased to announce a special scenario event to take place on Saturday June 9th to commorate this monumental achievement by that Greatest Generation. This will be a two table event pitting the forces of Nazi Germany against the combined might of American and British allied countries.
This event will have enough table space for up to 8 Allied and 8 German players. Both tables will be 8×4 feet long. One will feature the Dog Green sector of Normandy Beach and the second will be a recreation of the French countryside behind the Atlantic wall. Opsec plan Alpha is to meet up at Smokin In Style BBQ ( 2278 Albert Pike Road Hot Springs AR 71913) at high noon for lunch and then proceeded with the dice rolling after chow. This is an open event for anyone interested in playing. Armies can be provided for those who either don’t own any of the aforementioned forces, but I highly encourage folks to bring their own if they do.
Reservations are most certainly better than just showing up but please feel free to drop on by if only to check it out. If you plan on attending either PM me personally or post here with what side you want to be on and wether or not you have an army available. You can also email us at SpaCityWargamers@gmail.com. For all the specific rules and conditions for the Omaha Beach portion of this scenario please go to the following link.
The Airborne Drop table Rules will be provided in a future release.
Thank you for your support and as always. Happy Gaming!
