World War II gaming in 28mm scale is something that has been simmering in the local group for a while now. A few different systems have been played, including Operation Squad and a WW2 mod of the Force on Force rules.
The system that I'm finding the most interesting is Bolt Action from Warlord Games. Watching Jamie and Nathan play a small (500 pt) game yesterday seemed to confirm my first impression from reading the rules; Bolt Action is a nice simple system, light on detail, but fast and playable. Encouraged by this, I sat down this afternoon and painted a first section of infantry;
The models are Warlord Games early war Germans, which I am painting as Hungarians. The last photo shows all the infantry I currently have. A 600-800 point game of Bolt Action would involve a platoon or so of infantry, so I've just ordered two more squads, an MG34 team, and the main rulebook.
