Bolt Action


Stalingrad was one of the most brutal conflicts during WWII. The close, street-to-street fighting made the use of snipers an everyday issue for both sides. With endless places to hide, a sniper could pin down entire sections of enemy forces or take out key members of the opposing force. In this article, Warlord Games takes a look at snipers in Bolt Action and specifically the Stalingrad book.

Hitler: We must take Stalingrad at any cost.
Stalin: We must defend Stalingrad at any cost.

The result was one of the pivotal battles in WWII. The Germans were halted, but at a terrible cost. Millions died. But it showed that the German war machine could be stopped. Soon, you'll be able to recreate the harrowing street-by-street fighting on your tabletops with the Stalingrad Campaign book for Bolt Action.

WWII did not get off to a good start for the Allies. The combined armies of France, Britain, and Belgium were chased all the way to the sea where they had to perform a daring escape on the shores of Dunkirk. In this new scenario for Bolt Action, players take on the role of these opposing forces, the Allies working to get as many men to safety while the Germans are trying to wipe them out completely.

Tanks. Originally created to break the siege warfare of the trenches in WWI, they really came into their own in WWII. There were seemingly endless varieties of tanks and other armored vehicles used in that conflict, many of which you can bring to the table in Bolt Action. In this article, Warlord Games takes a look at their book devoted to all things tank, their Tank Wars expansion. If you want to play a game focused all around these armored behemoths, this is the article to check out.

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.

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.

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 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.

No more simply walking into battle for your soldiers. There's some new vehicles available to pre-order for Bolt Action over in the Warlord Games webshop. You've got yourself the M46 Patton Heavy Tank as well as the DUKW Amphibious Truck. So, granted, one's a tank and one's a water transport, but they're still meaning your troops aren't just putting one foot in front of the other in order to get to the enemy.

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.

The Korean War is making its way to your tabletops in Bolt Action: Korea. Relive the struggle for that peninsula as more figures are released for the game, including new troops and vehicles for the North Korean army. You can pick up some of these now, while you've got a short wait for others.

The Korean War supplement for Bolt Action is Warlord Games' latest rules release. If you're looking to add some new figures to your collection, now's a good time. And since many people's knowledge of the Korean War is based on M.A.S.H., the TV show, you might recognize some of the figures.

As usual, Warlord Games isn't good for just one release, or two, every week. They've got a whole bunch, and for a bunch of different games. There's some of the new Bolt Action: Korea line. There's new Konflikt '47 if you want some Weird War II. There's Cruel Seas if you want maritime non-Weird War II. And they round things off with Ancients in Hail Caesar.

Warlord Games had a big release week this week. There's new Bolt Action figures for both WWII as well as the Korean War. Same goes for Blood Red Skies. And then they have some Crimean War sets for Black Powder, if you like your historical miniatures going back a little further in time. It's a lot to look at, so let's dive in.

The Korean War is sometimes called The Forgotten War since, well, it doesn't get nearly as much attention as WWII or Vietnam. And yet it was a very important war with effects very much felt today. Warlord Games is giving you a chance to bring that war to your tabletops with Bolt Action: Korea, a new supplement that lets you recreate those battles. Pre-orders will begin in just over a day.

Warlord Games has a new game on the horizon. It's SPQR, a new set of rules for fighting with warbands in ancient times. They have started taking pre-orders for the rulebook, as well as a new 2-player starter set.
Also thrown into the mix today is a new piece for the Germans in Bolt Action. Because you can never have enough Bolt Action when it comes to Warlord Games.

There's a new landing craft and Amphibious Assault Rules available from Warlord Games... though they're for two different games. Yeah, odd coincidence, but here we are. The new landing craft is for Cruel Seas and will be out later this month, while the Amphibious rules are for Bolt Action and you can get those now. They're still worth checking out, though.

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.

Warlord Games likes to cover a lot of territory with their releases. They have quite a diverse catalog, after all. In this week's set of releases, they have special deals for Bolt Action troop transports (because who wants to walk to battle?), as well as some new Blood Red Skies squadrons. Finally, they have a pair of Pike & Shotte kits, because it's not all just WWII going on.

It's all WWII today for Warlord Games. They have a pair of new releases for Blood Red Skies as well as some support units for Bolt Action available over in their webshop. So, whether you're fighting on the front lines, or high above it all, there's some new figures for you.

Some pages in history are written on the grand scale. One such page is D-Day, the landing at Normandy by Allied forces during WWII. Warlord Games is looking to bring the epicness of that day to your tabletop with their The Longest Day set for Bolt Action. They're taking pre-orders now.

Three eras of warfare are on display this week from Warlord Games. There's a pair of armored carriers (ok, it's really the same, but one's got a tarp over it) for Bolt Action. There's some new Vikings for Hail Caesar. But arguably the big one is a new Black Powder supplment available to pre-order called Dark and Bloody Ground. Let's take a look at them all.

It's all WWII today for Warlord Games' releases. There's new kits for Cruel Seas, Blood Red Skies, and Bolt Action for you to order (or pre-order in some cases). So, whether you like your 1940s action on the ocean, in the sky, or on the land, you've got your options laid out for you.
