Those old PSAs told us that “speed kills.” Well, in the case of the M18 Hellcat, that was the case. Though it was the enemy that ended up getting taken out. The M18 was the fastest tracked armored vehicle that the Allies used during WWII, clocking in at 60mph. Using that speed, they would...

The temperature continues to drop. I know a lot of people north of me have already gotten out the cold weather gear. It’s even snowed in some places. Well, that snow-gear look can make its way to your Bolt Action tabletops as you equip your troops with coats, hats, gloves, and thicker boots. No...

Warlord Games loves their WWII model kits. They’ve long been known for their various sets they’ve put out. It was only much later that they came out with the Bolt Action rules so you can use all those cool kits in their own game. Well, there’s going to be some more armor rolling acr...

Winter is coming. No, really. It’s about a month and a half away (for us Northern Hemisphere people, anyway). Bolt Action is the one game I know that they have troops that are basically the same, but sculpted to show them at different points in time during the year. In general, that seems to be...

There have been dozens, if not hundreds, of movies made about World War II. Many of them are icons of cinematic history. Others are cult favorites. One of those is Kelly’s Heroes. Well, Warlord Games is letting you bring that oddball group of heroes to your Bolt Action games....

Marching your troops from Point A to Point B isn’t always the best way to go. Instead, you can have your platoons jump out of an airplane and land right in the enemy’s weak points. That’s just what the US was known to do in both Sicily and Normandy during World War II. Now you [&hel...

Protecting yourself against German air attacks is crucial to keeping your army in tact. AKA – You’ve gotta deal with those Fokkers before they become an issue. For the Soviet army, that came sometimes in the form of the GAZ truck mounted simply with four Maxim AAA guns attached to a stand...

There are many famous US military groups. One that participated in many of the most iconic battles in Europe during WWII was the US Airborne. They saw action in Sicily before taking part of the D-Day Invasion. They then had a role to play in Operation Market Garden. Well, Warlord Games is soon going ...

In wartime, weapons will often be made out of combining several already-used elements in order to create something that will fill a gap in an army’s forces. Such is the case with the Sd.Kfz 234/4 (PaK 40). There was a distinct lack of highly-mobile anti-tank weapons in the field, and so the Ger...

Not every tank has to be bigger and stronger than the last. There’s plenty of tactical room for a smaller, lighter, faster, and more maneuverable tracked vehicle. So, while the Russians might be generally known for looking to build the biggest version of many battlefield weapons, the T-70 tank ...

Not everyone has time to paint their minis. As such, they like the idea of getting them either painted after they get them, or just buy models that have already been painted. Well, Warlord Games has been kicking around the idea of selling pre-painted minis for a while. They got the first batches of s...

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 ...

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 ...
