Warlord Games Posts New Releases

Warlord Games posts new releases for their Bolt Action and Hail Caeser lines:

From their website:

If you’re looking for a bit more punch for your British or Commonwealth armoured forces look no further than this beast! Mounting a 60lb air-to-ground rocket as carried by the RAF’s Typhoons may seem unsporting but when you are facing Panthers, King Tigers and Jagdpanthers you need all the help you can get! Mounted on Shermans, Fireflies and Cromwell by the British and Commonwealth forces, and Staghound armoured cars by the Canadians these packed a nasty punch.

The title of Polemarch (roughly translated as ‘warlord’) became redundant around the time of the battle of Marathon. The duty of commanding an army was handed to the strategoi (literally ‘army leader’). We know from the accounts of Herodotus that they fought in the main line of battle with their fellow hoplites. Their equipment would have been very similar to the regular hoplite, but of a higher quality and more extravagant to show off their status and wealth. This would also aid location in the heat of battle. Each pack includes 3 separate heads and arms for maximum versatility.

Oh, so you US players want something to knock out the German big cats, eh? The good news is that rumbling towards the front line is the US M10 Tank Destroyer. Based on the proven and numerous M4 Sherman chassis, the M10 was fielded in large numbers during WWII and although it would be replaced by other tank destroyers based on it’s design the M10 continued to serve to the war’s end with distinction.
