Plastic King Tiger Kit Available To Pre-Order From Warlord Games

When we look back on history, it’s only natural to come up with “what if?” scenarios. How would things have changed if certain factors had been altered. One that plays on many WWII historians minds is “what if the Germans had put the King Tiger tank into action earlier or in greater numbers?” The few that made it certainly did cause issues. Well, you can play out some of those “what if?” scenarios on your Bolt Action tabletops soon, as Warlord Games is taking pre-orders for a new plastic King Tiger kit.

New Bolt Action Releases And Pre-orders Available

These jungle-fighting specialists went into Southeast Asia and deep into enemy territory to harass the enemy’s back flanks. They would disrupt support and rail lines with their guerilla-style tactics. You can now add these tough fighters to your Bolt Action armies. Along with that, back in Europe, if you’ve got a German force, you can order the new Waffen SS Grenadier pack.
