WWII


Happy Friday, everyone. Glad you could join us. Got any plans for the weekend? I've rapidly been realizing that next week will be a short one for us here in the US, as many of us will have at least Thursday off, and quite possibly taking Friday off as well. So, that's something to look forward to. But before we go have a BBQ cook out, let's nibble on some bite-sized gaming stories to get us there.

Today on the platter we have: WWII German Officer Available From Brother Vinni and Healer's Dice Up On Kickstarter.

D-Day. It's one of the most important days in human history. The Allies storm Normandy beach to start the liberation of Europe from the Axis. Battlefront is focusing on that particular day with a new wave of releases for Flames of War. They're currently taking pre-orders for some of the American forces that partook in that assault.

"Nothing! It's free!"
"FREE!?!?"

Ok, that aside, it's time to add to your Soviet air force with a pair of new sets you can pre-order from Warlord Games for Blood Red Skies. Let's take a look.

The Japanese air force is making its way to the scene in Blood Red Skies. Warlord Games has a new Imperial Japanese Expansion Pack, as well as a pair of squadrons, available for the game. There's also a pair of Konflikt '47 releases, for those that like their WWII with a bit of Weird thrown in.

Discuss

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.

While it's still Friday here in the States, in New Zealand, it's the weekend. And that means it's Live Launch Weekend already for Battlefront's Late War in Flames of War. They've got all manner of cool special events going on, as well as having a whole mess of new kits available, including their new 2-player starter and single-person faction starter sets. If you're a Flames of War player, you're not going to want to miss this.

Discuss

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.

Discuss

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.

Discuss

Flames of War is getting ever-closer to their Late War releases, and Battlefront just can't contain their excitment anymore. They've posted up some previews of what you can expect from these new releases, including a brand-new 2-player starter set called Hit the Beach, and Fury, a tank battles book.

Discuss

If you've been checking out Battlefront's social media pages lately, you'll know that they've been counting down to the Late War push they'll be making with Flames of War. Along with that, they're going to come out with new bundle deals. So you can know what you're getting ahead of type (and get properly hyped), they've posted up just what those deals will consist of. Have a look.

Discuss

A new ship will be steaming its way into the waters of Cruel Seas soon. It's the Imperial Japanese Navy IJN No. 101-class landing ship. It'll will be coming out in June, but Warlord Games is giving you a look at it now.

Discuss

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.

Discuss

There have been countless badass women that have existed throughout time. Unfortunately, many have not had their stories told. A Cool and Lonely Courage looks to change that for the women of the Special Operations Executive, an underground fighting force in France during WWII. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

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.

Discuss

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.

Discuss

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.

Discuss

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.

Discuss

It's a real shotgun blast of releases coming from Warlord Games today. There's a pair of new releases for Blood Red Skies. Bolt Action is also getting some action with a few Belgian releases. Pike & Shotte gets their first release in quite some time with a Swedish Field Commander. Even Beyond the Gates of Antares has some new figures.

Discuss

While I might be a "physical book version" fan, that doesn't mean that I don't also like having pdf versions around. I actually end up looking at more pdf rulebooks than I do actual ones, since most of my reading happens here on my computer. If you're looking to get the Warlords of Erehwon rulebook, as well as the Battle of France and Fortress Budapest capaigns for Bolt Action in pdf format, you're in luck.

Whether you like your WWII miniatures games up in the air, down on the waves, or a little weird, there's something for you this week from Warlord Games. They've got a whole bunch of new squadrons for Blood Red Skies. Theres's a new ship for German fleets in Cruel Seas. Finally, there's a pair of Konflikt '47 kits you can pick up now. Let's take a look at each.

Discuss

Warlord Games has some WWII, Weird War II, and Sci-Fi new releases this week for Bolt Action, Konflikt '47, and Beyond the Gates of Antares. So, whether you like your historical miniatures games actually historically accurate or not, or just want to blast off for the deepest reaches of space, they've got you covered. Let's take a look at some more specifics.

Discuss

Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! ... Actually, it is a plane, a whole ton of them. Warlord Games is greatly expanding the aircraft available for Blood Red Skies with six new squadrons available to order. Let's have a look at 'em.

Discuss

When getting into an army, it can be difficult to know where to begin or what you should get. There's usually lots of options, especially for a game like Bolt Action. So Warlord Games is helping out with a big bundle they've put together for their Royal Hungarian Army.

Discuss

Warlord Games is heading to the lands of sci-fi and WWII in this set of releases and pre-orders. They've got some new Beyond the Gates of Antares kits, as well as some Blood Red Skies and Cruel Seas. Have yourself a look-see.
