On the weekend of 28-29 January 2017 in the Nation's Capitol, CANCON took place.
I took my 1000pt Polish Army and set out to achieve greatness and they did just that!
|Early War Poles... So much swagger|
So how did they go?
Game 1 vs Late War Germans with a Tiger fearing Tiger 1 - Victory
Game 2 vs Late War British with double prep bombardment, Vet Firefly, Free Arty Obs - Victory
Game 3 vs Early War Partisans. Complete level playing field and a great opponent - Victory
Game 4 vs Late War Germans with 2 x Tanks including Tiger Fear (opponent forgot rule) - Victory
Game 5 and the decider vs Late War Germans with no Tiger Fear - Draw
Out of the 54 players in the tournament I was undefeated, achieved 3rd place and won best Minor Powers General (only half a dozen or so Minor Powers). I was also one of the only early war armies and the majority were late war usual suspects being British, German, Americans and Soviets. On a side note I made it into the top 10 Best Painted, however 2 very lovely painted German Armies took out the award.
|Note the Polish theme for the minor Powers General. It was Poland's time!|
Project Poland is far from finished! I have so much more to paint and many options to expand the Army.
On a final note. You don't need big fancy units with special rules to do well in Bolt Action. I didn't need to rely on Poland's very ordinary National rules at all during the Tournament. Any nation in Bolt Action can do well with a bit of thought, creative list writing and good Generalship. Leave the cheese behind.
