Hey there Bolt Action fans! For those of you following at home I have been actively exploring the new Partisans list from the Armies of France and their Allies. I began to unpack this and strategize in the most recent LRDG podcast with Dave of War and Warlord Tobu (Episode 5 for those at home… which you can now find in the ITunes store). My Partisans are based in the late war period and are modeled on Polish forces in the Warsaw Uprising. Now BA theory hammer is one thing but getting boots on the table is quite another animal and when playing games really clarifies unit roles, practical implications of rules and allows us to try out those hair brained ideas that always bounce around our heads. This in mind, I took on the formidable might of DaveOWar’s brand new German troops in a 1000 point battle with the my Partisan forces and learned a hell of a lot.
