Bolt Action on Sunday

I arranged the table into 2 6'x4's to allow 2 standard games of BA.  Both 1,000 pts demolition scenario.  In this scenario both sides have 1 objective and win if they end a turn with a non-transport unit in contact with it.

Steve's Russians v. Frankie's Germans
For once Steve commanded Soviets, using Chris' troops (to even up the Axis v. Allies for the day).  The Germans were on the right, the Russians on the left.
Steve kept up the pressure and steadily advanced on his left and centre.  Frankie's small high quality army just couldn't stop the Russian horde.  Steve reached the objective on turn 6, the Germans never even got close to theirs.

Matt's Germans v. Darryl's Brits.
The Brits are on the left, the Germans on the right.  The objectives are in the cornfields behind the houses abiut the middle of each side.
The Germans seemed to get the upper hand early with some hot shooting by their Hummel & artillery, but the Brits struck back with their barrage immobilising the German centre for a while & the Hummel getting zapped by a humble 2"  mortar. 
It looked like it was going to be a stalemate, but the Germans made late push through the vinyard and when the dice decreed a 7th turn they managed to reached the objective.
