One of the most iconic tanks of WWII, the Sherman V, has a new plastic kit available from Warlord Games. It’s a great addition to your Bolt Action armies (if you’re playing the Allies, that is. Not too many of these driven around by German, Italian, or Japanese tank commanders)....

Warmachine and Hordes aren’t the only games in town getting a new edition. Warlord Games has announced that Bolt Action, their game of WWII combat, is also getting a new edition. Though this one doesn’t sound like such a big change as we can be expecting from Privateer Press for their gam...

One of the most iconic tanks of the last World War, the Sherman V was a mainstay of the British and Polish forces. Though it had a high profile, it was a very popular tank, as it was rugged and reliable. And there were plenty of them to go around, thanks to American output....

While the Sherman might be known as “the tank” that the Allies used during WWII, it has a lot of shortfalls. For one, they’d catch fire seemingly at the drop of a hat. And they had a large profile that could be targeted. Plus, their main cannon could sometimes be less than what was ...

There are several names that just stand out from WWII. Sure, Hitler, Churchill, Stalin, and such. But other names such as Monty and Rommel are almost as well known. Their actions across North Africa are as much a part of the overall story of WWII as The Battle of the Bulge and Stalingrad. Well, Bolt ...

It’s a bit of a blitzkrieg of new releases for Bolt Action that Warlord Games is putting out today. There’s some new Germans, there’s some new Americans, and they finish with the Finnish, at least in terms of minis. There’s also new painting guides to make sure your figures lo...

Having a single vehicle that’s able to do several jobs can really help out in combat. Sure, a specialized tank might be able to do one thing really well, but if you have a really versatile piece of equipment out there, you might be able to get several jobs done almost at once. That’s the ...

Europe may not be the biggest continent, but it’d still be a pain if you had to walk everywhere. That goes extra if you’re in a hurry. And during WWII, a lot of people were in a hurry a lot of the time. To help move men and equipment around, the Germans used a lot […]...

Even the smallest artillery can have a big impact on the battlefield (no pun intended). That extra bit of firepower can turn the tide of a fight, and the Germans certainly had various artillery pieces at their disposal during WWII. One of them was the 75mm light infantry gun. This was a short-barrele...
