Historical


The latest ships for Black Seas are all 1st Rate. Literally. These massive and impressive ships for the French and English navies can now be purchased from Warlord Games. If you're looking for a flagship and center of your armadas, look no further.

Warlord Games is bolstering North Korean forces this week with their latest Bolt Action: Korea kits. There's the new Self-propelled gun (which actually is suitable for WWII Soviet forces as well, if you're so inclined) and a new anti-tank gun, to keep those American forces from coming across the border. Have yourselves a look.

I'm sure when the Allies hit the Normandy beach during D-Day, they thought that the waves of German troops would never end. And that's how it feels with these posts. We've got yet more German forces that you can add to your Flames of War armies.

Submarines. The silent killer of the seas. In Cruel Seas, they can be a real game-changer, pretty much literally. In this article, Warlord Games takes a look over their use in the game as well as comparing between the German and English subs, arguably the two best types during the war.

Baueda is reinforcing the German lines in 1-48TACTIC with a new release. You can now pick up Grenadier Lugwig Geyer and add him to your force.

Fire in the hole!

Bit of a shotgun set of releases for you from Warlord Games this time around. Starting off, for those of you that like to take all your rulebooks with you in your pocket, there's the digital version of the Black Seas rulebook. For those that are Pike & Shotte players (been a while since I'd seen anything for them), you can get your new Scots Covenanter General and Army Standard Bearer. Last, but not least, there's the North Korean KPA ZIS-3 Divisional Gun for Bolt Action: Korea.

The Germans are lining the beaches, looking across the English Channel, waiting for the Allies to make a play at taking their control away from mainland Europe. They're well equipped, with all manner of different weapons ready for action. This week's set of releases for Flames of War from Battlefront includes some anti-armor elements.

The amphibious landing. It's been a staple of warfare for thousands of years as water-based troops storm the beaches to fight a foe on the land. Warlord Games is bringing these exciting battles to your games of Black Seas and Black Powder with a new set of rules that they've posted up over on their website.

WWI is, to me, one of the most fascinating times in human history. The results of that war still influence culture, war, and politics to this very day, a century later. If you'd like to see what life was like back in the trenches (but don't actually want to fly to France or risk death out in No Man's Land), you will want to check out Ross Rifles, a new RPG system powered by the Apocalypse System that's up on Kickstarter now.

The Germans had a whole army's worth of men and material to defend against the Allied invasions at Normandy. Battlefront has yet more for your Flames of War games. Armored vehicles, artillery, and more to defend German holdings.

While the Normandy invasion, known as D-Day, obviously took place in a very specific part of the world, the ramifications of it spread out to all corners of the globe. Soon, all the world will be recreating it as Battlefront launches their D-Day Global Campaign for Flames of War at the end of October. Read on to find out about this new campaign event.

While aircraft were used in WWI, they were still fairly experimental. Humans had only learned to fly a handful of years earlier. By the time WWII rolled around, aviation technology had advanced quite a bit from where it'd left off. These new releases for Blood Red Skies gives you a chance to pick up some early Soviet aircraft from right when the war was taking off (no pun intended... maybe).

The German war machine was churning out gear at a very high rate before the Allies invaded Normandy. Different weapons of war, as well as different specialized units were stationed all along the coast, making sure that nothing could get in. For your Flames of War games, Battlefront is helping bolster Fortress Europe with some more German releases.

You gotta make sure you're playing the game right. You don't want something to be unbalanced and keep using it if it's been fixed. That's why you need to check out the updated Bolt Action FAQ that Warlord Games has posted. They've also put up an article based on their Korean variety of the game, adding in instruments to the Chinese army (it'll make more sense when you read the article).

Warlord Games has been working hard, bring you more figures for Bolt Action: Korea. If you're looking for some heavy firepower for your North Korean forces, or if you're wanting a new armored utility vehicle, now you've got some more options.

The Germans had quite the production capabilities during WWII. They were able to churn out large amounts of vehicles, materials, and soldiers to continue their conquest of Europe (and the world!). When the Allies hit Normandy Beach, the Germans had quite a defense set up. Battlefront is bringing more of these D-Day Germans to your Flames of War tabletops, including a new Nebelwerfer, because you can't have a war without some werfed nebels.

For protection? Protection from what? Ze Germans?
*looks at the new releases from Battlefront for Flames of War*
Oh, s---. Ok, maybe "Ze Germans" are here already. You can pick up some new reinforcements for your German D-Day forces now over in the Battlefront webshop or at your local LGS.

While the Korean peninsula has been taking up much of Warlord Games' releases these days, that doesn't mean that they're not working on other, older games as well. For example, they also have a new kit for Blood Red Skies as well as Cruel Seas that you can order over in their webshop now. If you're looking for some sea or sky action for your WWII games, this is up your alley.

The German forces had a long time to reinforce the coast of Europe during their occupation. They knew that, eventually, the Allies were bound to attempt a landing. When it finally came, they were as ready as possible. To represent that on your Flames of War tabletops, Battlefront has some new D-Day Germans that you can order from them now.

The high seas. The waves. The salt spray. The miles of open water. The flying cannonballs. The splinters as your ship's ripped apart. The drowning as your ship goes down...

Man, that got dark really fast. But such is life in the naval forces in Black Seas, the new fleet-sized miniatures game from Warlord Games. It's armada combat in the age of sail. You can pre-order the rulebook, starter set, and several different fleets now.

The Korean War really doesn't have that many representations in gaming. There's plenty of WWII and even a few Vietnam, but Korea really doesn't have much. Warlord Games is looking to remedy that. They have some more sets for Bolt Action: Korea over in their webshop that you can order now.

When Battlefront has some big release, they don't just send out the skus to the stores and let things go on by. No, they celebrate. And with the release of the D-Day Germans for Flames of War coming up in just over a week, they want to make sure you know you're invited to their Live Launch. All that weekend, they'll have special things going on over at their website for you to check out.

No battle during WWII was fought in a vacuum (... I mean, of course not literally because it didn't happen in outer space. But also, none were fought without the larger context fo the war). Each had their own place in an overall campaign for the various warring factions. With Bloody Omaha, the first of the Ace Campaigns coming from Battlefront for Flames of War, you too can set your battles in a larger context in terms of a campaign. In this article, Battlefront gives us a look at what this new system of campaigns is like.

Firmly entrenched in WWII are the posts from Warlord Games today. They're talking about the IJN No. 1-Class Fast Transport T6 for the Japanese Navy over in Cruel Seas. Then, for Bolt Action, they've got a couple sets of Hungarian Anti-Tank kits for you. On the land or on the sea, there's something for you to check out. Let's have a look.

Hmm, well, this is different. I'm used to having to not show figures from someone like Brother Vinni because they're NSFW, but it's been a while since I've had to do that for Warlord Games (these new Gaul Skyclad aren't their first nude figures ever). But you can pick them up, along with other Tribesmen, as well as some figures for the Numidian forces for SPQR now over in their webshop.
