I’ve long been a big fan of armored units. Sure, infantry are fine, but it’s tanks and other heavy gear that really gets me going, “Oooh, that’s cool.” I know many of you out there agree. Heck, you’d probably want to play a game that was really all just tanks on a battlefield. Well, Warlord Games is letting you do just that with their Tank War variant for Bolt Action. They’ve released several starter sets for the game, as well as other armored platoons in their webshop.

From the releases:

With over 70,000 units produced the T-34 is famous for its unconventional design. When it arrived early in the war the T-34 became a threat that the German’s just couldn’t handle.
Designed to replace the monster sized KV tank series, the IS-2 was just as big and heavy but was even nastier. Equipped with a massive 122mm gun, its intention was to be a breakthrough tank, demolishing fortifications and clearing enemy positions.

This huge value starter set is filled to the brim with content, here’s the breakdown:

3 Plastic T-34/85 medium tanks
3 Plastic IS-2 heavy tank
An A5 softcover Tank War Bolt Action supplement
A quick start booklet
A quick reference sheet
A set of templates, tokens and pin markers
Bolt Action Stat cards
6 Bolt Action order dice
A set of vehicle damage markers
Vehicle decal sheets
Rulers and six-sided dice

The KV-series tanks were a fearsome and formidable weapon during most of the Second World War. At the onset of the German invasion of the Soviet Union, around 500 KV-1 heavy tanks were built. Outclassing every other tank in operational service, it came as something of a rude awakening for the rampant German Panzer divisions.

This box has the components to allow you to make either a platoon of KV-1s or KV-2s, you can even mix and match! Here are the full contents:

3 hard plastic Soviet KV-1 heavy tanks or KV-2 self-propelled artillery
A detailed tank commander
An instruction and painting guide
A full colour waterslide decal sheet
Bolt Action stat cards for an easy gaming reference
Tank damage markers to give your games a realistic aspect
8 multi-pose plastic Soviet infantry to use as Tank Riders

Most properly known as the Iosif Stalin 2 tank (IS-2) it is also widely known as the anglicised Joseph Stalin 2 (JS-2) heavy tank.

Making its combat debut early in 1944, the IS-2 was designed predominantly as a heavy tank to break through enemy lines, able to withstand the potent German anti-tank weaponry and with a 122mm gun able to defeat the likes of the German Panther and Tiger tanks.

Box contains:

3 hard plastic Soviet IS-2 heavy tanks
A detailed tank commander
An instruction and painting guide
A full colour waterslide decal sheet
Bolt Action stat cards for an easy gaming reference
Tank damage markers to give your games a realistic aspect

American lend-lease allows the British to field the Sherman and British engineers improved these tanks even further, putting it’s fire power above most American versions with the Sherman V Firefly, equipped with a 17-pdr cannon which was one of the most deadly anti-tank weapons of the war, capable of tearing through the heaviest of armour.
To match the German heavy tanks toe to toe, the British created the Churchill, one of the heaviest and sturdiest Allied tanks.

What used to be one of the most numerous tanks during the war, the M4 Sherman saw battle all over the world.

Limited steel resources forced Germany’s hand to create monstrous tanks, vehicles capable of taking on whole squadrons on their own and coming out on top. Spearheading this assault is the Panther, boasting tough front armour, making it the ideal candidate to take any force head on. Bringing up the rear is the mechanical king of Europe, the Tiger I. Very few enemy weapons will scratch a Tiger’s surface, roll over your opponent with your nigh invulnerable task force.
