New German Pak 40 auf RSO Available For Bolt Action

The Soviets made some pretty good tanks during WWII. This was causing the Germans some issues. They had their reliable Pak 40 gun, but it wasn’t easy to move the thing around. And the original Tank Destroyers that were made had exposed crew quarters, so they could be taken out with small arms fire. The Pak 40 auf RSO compensated for that with an armored crew compartment, even though it made the whole thing rather slow. Now, you can bring it to your Bolt Action battlefield and take out those annoying T-34s.

New Winter Soviets Available To Order From Warlord Games

Winter is coming… No. Really. We’ve got about a month and a half and it’ll be here.

New Char B1 bis Platoon Available From Warlord Games

Tanks were a brand-new invention during WWI. They were seen as a way to finally break the trench warfare of the Western Front. Between the wars, there was some innovation, but the French felt that the original styles were still some of the best and kept producing along those lines. Hence the Char B1, which was upgraded to the Car V1 bis. You can now add a platoon of these land-battleship style tanks to your Bolt Action armies.

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.

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

One of the perhaps less-known parts of WWII was the exploits of the Chindits.

Along with that, back in Europe, if you’ve got a German force, you can order the new Waffen SS Grenadier pack.

Who wants to walk into battle? Nobody, that’s who. You want to get there in style. And what’s cooler than getting to the fight in a cool motorcycle? Perhaps a tank? Well, the Germans were doing both in WWII, and Warlord Games is giving you two vehicles related to that. The first is the new German Feldgendarme Motorcycle Team. The other is NOT a new piece of German armor. It’s the other side of the battle with the Bedford OY SP 3-pdr, as the British fought against said Germans.

The German invasion of Britain not only stalled out, but the counter-attack is threatening to push them back into the sea. With the stakes high, the German High Command is launching Campaign Gigant, their own counter-counter-offensive that will hopefully (for them, anyway) see the tide turn back once more. The new book coming for Bolt Action, Operation Gigant adds new options and missions for players.

New Bolt Action Releases Available From Warlord Games

Not everyone in Britain was against the Germans leading up to WWII (and even during it). Popular culture might say that it was everyone in the world versus the Germans, Italians, and Japanese, but it was not the case. For Bolt Action, Warlord Games has created a figure for Sir Oswald Mosley, someone who thought getting involved in the continental war was not the right thing to do. And then, on the other side of things, they have the British Expeditionary Force Infantry Section, because y’know… the British did fight in WWII.

Warlord Games Taking Pre-Orders For Operation Sea Lion Campaign Book

In a way, every time we play a historical wargame, we’re playing a bit of “what if?” with it. We know what happened (at least, roughly speaking) because it’s history. But you can change that up and do things like, “what if the cavalry hadn’t shown up in time at Waterloo?” “What if the Americans had been armed with a few more heavy machine guns in the Ardennes?” “What if Germany had invaded Britain?” It’s that last one that Warlord Games lets you explore in the Operation Sea Lion Campaign Book for Bolt Action, of which they are taking pre-orders now.

New Bolt Action Releases Available From Warlord Games

While temperatures are starting to rise here in the Northern Hemisphere, the idea of taking a nice vacation somewhere out in the Pacific still seems like a nice idea. I’ve never been surfing, but I’ve always meant to learn (yes, a surfing polar bear. It could happen). Needless to say, during WWII, the Pacific wasn’t a place you would go on a vacation. No, there was plenty of fighting going on during the island-hopping campaigns. Warlord Games lets you recreate those historic battles with their new releases for Bolt Action, including a Chi-Ha Tank Platoon, Australian Independent Commandos, and Japanese Bamboo Fighters.
