Two New Releases Available for Bolt Action

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. Both are available over in the Warlord Games webshop.

New Operation Sea Lion Minis Available From Warlord Games

Operation Sea Lion saw the Germans invading Britain. The fighting soon made it so everyday citizens were suddenly on the front lines, battling the advancing army. The Germans had their own infiltrators in the British populace, looking to sew discord where they could. Two new sets from Warlord Games let you bring such colorful characters to your Bolt Action tabletops.

Warlord Games Looks Inside Campaign Gigant

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. Warlord Games has posted up another preview looking into just what the operation (militarily) consists of.

Warlord Games Previews Campaign Gigant Scenario: Battle for Nottingham

It’s WWII and Germany has invaded Britain. The British people are fighting back with everything they have against the occupying forces. That’s what’s going on in Campaign Gigant, the second book in the Operation Sea Lion series for Bolt Action. In this preview, take a look at one of the scenarios that’s coming. Nottingham is under attack (the Germans obviously want to take over GW’s operations).

New Bolt Action Releases Available From Warlord Games

The Germans have invaded England! Regular folks from all over the country are doing their best to resist their advancements at every turn. Men and women from both the city and the country, who may have never thought about being part in an active warzone are doing their part.

So, the Germans have invaded Britain as part of Operation Sea Lion. However, the British put up a significant defense and have actually driven the Germans back to the sea. Now, Kent is the only place left under German occupation. Not wanting to give up, the German High Command has launched Phase Two of the invasion, nicknamed Gigant. It’s this new “What if…?” scenario you can play out in Bolt Action with the Operation Sea Lion: Phase Two: Gigant book, available to pre-order now.

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.

New Bolt Action Kits Available to Order From Warlord Games

The Allies are getting a couple reinforcement sets for Bolt Action from Warlord Games. First, the US is getting a flamethrower team. I know it’s getting to be summer and it’s going to be hot enough, but if you want to clear out that enemy bunker, the flamethrower team’s a decent choice. For the British, they’re getting a new Airborne box set. Those that do the pre-order will also get the glider the troops will deploy from.

New Chi-Ha Medium Tank Available For Bolt Action

The Chi-Ha was one of the most-often-seen tanks being used by the Japanese during WWII. In production since the Second Sino-Japanese War, these tough and reliable tanks were used all over the Pacific, giving Allied forces a bit of trouble on the various islands. Now, you can get them for your games of Bolt Action.

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.

Warlord Games Releases IS-2 Heavy Tank Plastic Kit

Sometimes old kits need a revamp. New modelling techniques, new molding techniques, new materials being available, all of these can mean an older kit just needs to be upgraded and made fresh and new.

Warlord Games Taking Pre-Orders For Panzer VIII Maus

While we commonly associate Russia with always creating “the biggest _____ to ever be used in battle,” the biggest and most-armored fighting vehicle to ever see active combat actually came from Germany in WWII. That was the antonym-named “Maus” tank. Soon, you’ll be able to add it to your Bolt Action forces.

Warlord Games Releases Several PDF Rulebooks

Technology has made it so we don’t have to carry around slices of trees with us wherever we go. Most of us have some form of computer in our pockets most of the day.

They’ve got PDF versions of some of their most popular titles now available.

New Plastic M18 Hellcat Available From Warlord Games

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 get around and behind the enemy, attacking where their armor was lighter. Now you can bring that speed and precision to your Bolt Action games.

New Winter German Heer Forward Observer Team Available For Bolt Action

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.

Now, your German artillery spotters can keep nice and warm while calling in coordinates, as there’s a Heer Forward Observer Team now available in winter kit.

Well, there’s going to be some more armor rolling across tabletops soon with a couple new pre-orders available for some new tank kits.

New Winter Germans Available for Bolt Action

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 a thing exclusive to historical games. I’ve never seen, “Winterguard in Summer Gear” for Warmachine, for example. But I’m getting off-topic. Warlord Games has some new winter Germans for Bolt Action available in their webshop.

Bolt Action: Armies of Germany Pre-orders Available Now

We’re in the 10th month (even though it’s called the 8th month, because calendars are weird like that) of the Year of New Editions and there’s still some releases to be made. This time around, it’s an expansion book. We got Bolt Action 2nd Edition (Bolt Harder) earlier this year. Warlord said that all the army books currently out were still going to be valid. However, looking over the Armies of Germany book, which was the first one released four years ago, they saw that it could use a bit of updating, itself.
