New Bolt Action Releases Available From Warlord Games

Warlord Games is coming at you with some more Bolt Action releases. They've got US and British Airborne figures, pre-orders for their upcoming D-Day book, a Luftwaffe artillery piece, and more (including one of the most famous British generals, Moooooonty!). Let's take a look.

New: Luftwaffe Field Division 88mm Flak 37

Originally developed as an anti-aircraft weapon, the Flak 37 8.8cm (or Eighty-eight as it became known by Allied troops) had a high muzzle velocity to allow it to reach the higher ranges modern bombers were capable of at the time. This would make it an exceptionally deadly anti-tank weapon as many Allied tank crews would learn to their peril. The 88 could also be deployed as a conventional artillery piece – as one infantryman noted, the 88 was ‘anti-everything’…

Capable of firing in extremis whilst still attached to its wheeled carriages (although with limited traverse or elevation), the 88 could be fully deployed onto its cruciform firing platform and ready to fire in around two and a half minutes.

New: Monty – General Montgomery

Best known perhaps for his victorious command of the British Eighth Army in the Western Desert, General Montgomery is ready to be a figurehead for your troops as they head into battle!
