Written by veteran game designers Alessio Cavatore and Rick Priestley, Bolt Action provides all the rules needed to bring the great battles of World War II to your tabletop. Using miniature soldiers, tanks and terrain, you can fight battles in the shattered towns of occupied France, the barren deserts of North Africa, and even the sweltering jungles of the Pacific.
Players get to decide which of the major or minor World War II powers they would like to represent, and then construct their armies from the lists provided. Army options are almost limitless, allowing you to build the kind of army that most appeals to your style of play. The choice is yours.
Created as a joint project between Warlord Games and Osprey Publishing, the leading independent military history publisher, Bolt Action is sure to be the most popular new wargame on the market.
We saw from our recent club days that Bolt Action has increased in its appeal to a variety of gamers of all ages. Offering a new challenge outside of the GW game systems that were being played, it provides the opportunity to play historical & tactical style games at affordable prices. You can pick yourself up a 500 point army for approx £30.
Warlord offer a variety of armies that can be used, and are adding new products to their catalogue every month. Bolt Action will be played at the March Club Day, so if your interested in a demo game just drop us a line, but get yourself over to Warlord Games to see what they offer.
Late March will also see the release of the Great Britain Army book, which sits alongside the German and US Army books that have already been released.
During this coming year we hope to be running a Bolt Action tournament with the support of Warlord Games. We will keep you updated as soon as we get confirmation of this exciting event.
