The final part of the war in Europe during WWII was the Allies getting ready to head to Germany, itself. The D-Day landing had been successful. Paris had been liberated. Now it was time to head to Berlin. It wasn’t going to be an easy trek, of course, as the Germans were falling back on [&helli...

There is no “i” in team. But there is a “we” in weapon. In this case, both the Freeborn and the Boromites are getting themselves some new heavy weapons crews with which they look to punch giant holes in the enemy forces....

I’m not sure how easy it would be to control an entire army where everyone is named Norman. I mean, you’d get into, “Hey! Norman! … No… the other Norman! … No, the other-other Norman!” … It’d soon turn into a Monty Python skit. Thankfully, the Nor...

Warlord Games has a whole slew of new Japanese releases for Konflikt ’47. If you want some new units, you can get the new Ghost Attack Squad (not actual ghosts, nor do they attack ghosts) or the Battle Exoskeleton Squad. Want something with a bit more armor? You can get the Chi-Ha Tank with Com...

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. One that plays on many WWII historians minds is “what if the Germans had put the King Tiger tank into action earlier or in g...

Sometimes you just gotta bring out the big guns. Enemy armor or fortifications need to be blown to smithereens and your regular hand-held piece just won’t do it. So you call in the artillery. That’s what we’ve got with these new releases for Beyond the Gates of Antares. The Isorians...

One of the perhaps less-known parts of WWII was the exploits of the Chindits. These jungle-fighting specialists went into Southeast Asia and deep into enemy territory to harass the enemy’s back flanks. They would disrupt support and rail lines with their guerilla-style tactics. You can now add ...

Over the past week or two, I’ve been watching through my collection of Terry Gilliam movies. He is, easily, my favorite director, and his commentary tracks are always awesome. As such, it was just a couple days ago I saw, “Listen you stupid bastard, you’ve got no arms left!” &...

In any society, there’s going to be those who don’t want to follow society’s rules and would rather just forge their own path. This often means taking from others, leading to a rough life of banditry. Certainly, there were those types in feudal Japan, and Warlord Games is letting yo...

Ah yes, another 2-player starter set. We all know how much I love them. This time around, it’s heading over London during WWII. The Battle of Britain was a major event in the course of the war, with British and German pilots fighting it out in close-quarters dogfights. Warlord Games’ Bloo...

Napoleon had basically conquered all of Europe. Then he decided he’d go an invade Russia. History tells us how well that worked out for him. But you never know. Maybe you could’ve done better if you’d been in charge. That’s what you’ll get to try out with A Clash of Eagl...

I’ve long been a big fan of armored units. Sure, infantry are fine, but it’s tanks and other heavy gear that really gets me going, “Oooh, that’s cool.” I know many of you out there agree. Heck, you’d probably want to play a game that was really all just tanks on a ...

Arguably the best tank deployed during the war, the King Tiger was feared by Allied tank commanders due to its formidable armor and ability to take out enemy takes at over 1.5 miles away. Lord only knows what would have happened if more had been produced, or if they hit the field earlier in the [&hel...

Man, nobody likes having to buy things at full price. I mean, we do it most of the time, but if you can get it for cheaper than usual, why not do so? Well, Warlord Games is looking to move out some overstocked items from their warehouse, so they’re having a big sale. Now’s your […]...
