Stalingrad was one of the most brutal conflicts during WWII. The close, street-to-street fighting made the use of snipers an everyday issue for both sides. With endless places to hide, a sniper could pin down entire sections of enemy forces or take out key members of the opposing force. In this article, Warlord Games takes a look at snipers in Bolt Action and specifically the Stalingrad book.
Hitler: We must take Stalingrad at any cost.
Stalin: We must defend Stalingrad at any cost.
The result was one of the pivotal battles in WWII. The Germans were halted, but at a terrible cost. Millions died. But it showed that the German war machine could be stopped. Soon, you'll be able to recreate the harrowing street-by-street fighting on your tabletops with the Stalingrad Campaign book for Bolt Action.
With the Luftwaffe straffing down from overhead, the Allies at Dunkirk had to make a hasty retreat, getting onto whatever could float to try and leave the continent and escape to Britain. In this scenario for Cruel Seas, that intense escape is played out on your tabletops. Interconnected with the other scenarios posted for Bolt Action and Blood Red Skies, it's a multi-game event.
Warlord Games has a new scenario out for Blood Red Skies. The beginning of WWII saw the Allies being chased by rapidly-advancing German forces as they tried to make it out to the coast. Once there, the Allies had to form a very hasty retreat at the beaches of Dunkirk while the Luftwaffe attacked from above. In this scenario, you can replay that harrowing ordeal on your tabletops.
Tanks. Originally created to break the siege warfare of the trenches in WWI, they really came into their own in WWII. There were seemingly endless varieties of tanks and other armored vehicles used in that conflict, many of which you can bring to the table in Bolt Action. In this article, Warlord Games takes a look at their book devoted to all things tank, their Tank Wars expansion. If you want to play a game focused all around these armored behemoths, this is the article to check out.
A new commander is taking to the field in Black Powder. The Duke of Marlborough has headed into battle. How will this British commander make an impact on the game? Well, Warlord Games is here to look into just that with a new article. Have yourselves a look.
Cruel Seas puts players in control of many of the smaller ships that fought during WWII. Sure, there were battleships, destroyers, and aircraft carriers around, but many harrowing battles were fought by the smaller patrol boats and other light craft. A new book is coming out soon for the game called Close Quarters and it'll make this small-craft fighting get even more close.

It's Monday. And it's right after the time-change here in the States. I know we're supposed to have gotten an extra hour of sleep, but dang, I was having a hell of a time getting out of bed this morning. Then, I over-compensated by putting on classical music and now I'm pumped.
"But PB! Classical music is all boring and stuff!"
