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 Waterloo?” “What if the Americans had been armed with a few more heavy machine guns in the Ardennes?” “What if Germany had invaded Britain?” It’s that last one that Warlord Games lets you explore in the Operation Sea Lion Campaign Book for Bolt Action, of which they are taking pre-orders now.
From the announcement:
With this new Campaign book for Bolt Action, players can fight the battles of World War II’s greatest ‘What If’ scenario. Defend the beaches of Kent against waves of German landing craft, parachute into the Home Counties in a surgical strike to capture Winston Churchill, or rally the Home Guard to hold off the invaders!
With new rules, scenarios, and unit types covering the unique features of this alternative history campaign, you now have the chance to rewrite the history of World War II.
