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. Something that’s protected the Russians on more than one occasion during was has been their harsh winter conditions. It happened to Napoleon and it happened to Hitler. In this instance, we’re focusing on that second one, as Warlord Games is coming out with a whole range of winter Russian WWII kits for Bolt Action.

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.

Warlord Games Taking Pre-orders For Road To Berlin Campaign For Bolt Action

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 their supply lines. There would be counter-offenses, of course, and the war was far from a sure-win. Soon, you’ll be able to bring that action to your Bolt Action tabletops with the Road to Berlin campaign, available for pre-order now.

New Normans Available To Order For Hail Caesar

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 Normans weren’t actually all named Norman. I just wanted to make a terrible joke. Either way, there’s new Archers, Cavalry, and Heavy Infantry kits available to order from Warlord Games for Hail Caesar.

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.

New Bolt Action Releases And Pre-orders Available

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 these tough fighters to your Bolt Action armies. Along with that, back in Europe, if you’ve got a German force, you can order the new Waffen SS Grenadier pack.
