reading through the various comments and descriptions, Bolt Action somehow reminds me of Battlefield Evolution: World at War.
I have only read the rules of Battlefield Evolution: World at War and never played it because it was almost but not quite the thing I was looking for.
Can those of you who have played both or at least read both give your opinions on that, please?
What happens when these combine?
I prefer WaW but Bolt Action is beautifully produced and designed for tournament play.
Both have the horrible to grognards grouping of Ordnance weapons (light, medium, heavy etc. and BA does not separate HE and AP effect), hideous.
I think WaW handles armor combat better however, although there are strong disagreements on vehicle stats.
Both are worth a play.
