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 l...

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...

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 ...

One thing with miniatures is that you can change just a couple things on a figure and get a whole new miniature out of it. This economy of sculpts lets a company put out a large number of figures in a relatively short amount of time. By changing the type of weapon on a gun […]...

Simply walking into battle is no fun at all. Why not drop in on your opponent from above, taking them by surprise? That’s what the Airborne infantry do, and you can do it now in Bolt Action. Warlord Games has some new British Airborne releases available, including a starter army and some expans...

Whenever Warlord Games comes out with a new book, they have a pre-order for it. And whenever they have their pre-order going, those that get the book directly from them will get an exclusive figure to go along with it. In the case of the upcoming Beyond the Gates of Antares book, Chryseis Shard, that...

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 o...

Sure, you could just use a sharpened stick, or even just your bare hands in a fight, but that’s not really going to be very effective. Instead, why not bring in the big guns, like a C3 Plasma Bombard or one of the new weapons available for the Algoryn? Probably be much more effective....

We’ve been seeing a lot of Soviet and German releases for Konflikt ’47 recently. But that’s not to say that the Americans have just been sitting around, doing nothing. The engineers have been hard at work on a pair of walkers of their own. We present to you, the Bruin and the Jackal...

You’d think that both being rather mechanical in nature, the Cybermen and the Daleks would get along. Though, (thankfully for most of the rest of the universe) such is not the case. They clash with one-another just like they clash with other races. And that’s just what they’ll be do...

Those Soviets and Germans are at it again, looking to put the biggest piece of armor possible out onto the battlefield. Their incessant arms race (well, it is a war, after all) continues to bring bigger and stronger machines to the conflict. In this case, it’s the Zeus and the Mammoth, both ava...

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 Wat...

It’s time to bring in the big guns. During WWII, the Soviets and the Germans were in an arms race to bring the biggest tanks to the battlefield. Well, in the Weird War II setting of Konflikt ’47, that continues on. The Germans have the Zeus Heavy Mechpanzer, while the Russians have the Ma...
