These are generally enough to start an army, but Warlord also has a "Build an Army" system which allows you to pick from a variety options for a set price. This is pretty good and often comes out as a better deal than the generic army boxes you also get a free tank. Warlord's recent plastic boxes are also generally enough to build a small force, with twenty five to thirty miniatures. This is easily enough to build two infantry selections, an officer, and adjutants.

The Starter Set "D-Day Fire Fight" contains twenty Americans, twelve Germans who also get a half track , some terrain, and your typical rulebook and card board makers. The German models have recently been updated as the new Warlord Grenadiers which are much better sculpts than the originals. These can be painted as Waffen-SS and have a lot of options, as do the Americans.

Game Summary[ edit ] As mentioned above, Bolt Action shares many similarities with 40K, with a few key differences and plenty of minor changes to distinguish it. The core mechanic of Bolt Action is the command dice system.

About this Product

Each player has a number of command dice equal to the number of units they have, each player having a different color. All the dice are put in a bag and are drawn out.

The player whose die is drawn gets to perform one of six orders, which are shown on each of the facings on the d6: Advance: The basic order, a unit can move 6" and shoot. Fire: The unit remains stationary and shoots, slightly more accurate than if they advanced. Run: The unit moves 12", or in CQC. Rally: The unit loses more pins.

Down: They become harder to hit, but can perform no other action. Ambush: They open fire on any unit that moves in their line of sight. Every unit has one of three levels of experience: inexperienced, regular, and veteran.

Each level is a step up in durability, morale, and damage output. The third mechanic, which works with the orders above, is pinning.

Every time a unit is hit at least once by another unit they take a single pin marker.

Having at least one pin will force the unit to take an order test when they want to perform any order except Down. Veterans, regulars, and inexperienced troops have a morale level of 10, 9, and 8 respectively and the order test works exactly like a Leadership test in 40K and Fantasy: roll less than or equal to your morale on 2d6.

Each pin marker acts as a negative modifier to the morale level. If they fail, they simply go down.

The final core mechanic is how shooting works. Every unit hits on a d6 roll of a 3 or more, but plenty of modifiers apply, including distance, their movement, how much cover the enemy unit is in, and pin markers.

If a unit hits, they give a pin marker to the enemy, then roll damage. The likelihood of wounding is based off the veterancy of the enemy troops and the pen value of the weapon used.

Armies[ edit ] Warlord have produced a variety of books, allowing players to represent most fighting forces which took part in World War II. Each book allows both generic platoons which consist of a basic structure, with any unit or vehicle allowed or "Theater Selector" platoons, which have more restrictions but also some bonuses; for example, most German theater selectors allow two MMG teams, as opposed to the single team that the generic platoon allows.

These Theater Selectors allow players to represent a very specific time period or battle during the war. Each army has two or more special rules, representing the nation during the Second World War. Infantry are practically the same within every army, while every army has access to some form of veterans, etc. The only difference is that the SS get the Fanatics option.

Their special rules represent the high rate of fire of their MGs Hitler's Buzzsaw and the initiative training their troops received. The power of the new Panzer forces, supported by mobile infantry and accurate close air support from dive-bombing aircraft, crushed the brave Polish resistance. The Polish Army was too slow and cumbersome to react in time to German attacks and troop movements. The Panzers gave the German Army the initiative from the beginning of the campaign, and their speed of operation meant that it was never relinquished.

With leadership encouraged and expected, even down to the lowest level of squad-leading NCOs, German units which were heavily outgunned or on the brink of collapse often fought on. Junior officers often formed ad hoc units from stragglers and survivors and got them back into a battle when all seemed lost. Functioning and effective combat units could be drawn quickly together from any available troops — cooks and clerks were often thrown into the fighting and performed well.

Especially in the east, surrounded German units time and again fought on beyond hope of rescue and managed to escape their encirclement.

Infantry squad tactics, developed throughout the war, maximized the firepower of the powerful German machine guns. Defensive positions were carefully planned, with fallback firing positions already in place. Squads were well equipped with these excellent weapons, and many Panzer grenadier squads dismounted the machine gun from their half-track carrier when it was not required, giving them extra firepower.

The many different factions made for a complex and fraught command structure. Army and Corps commanders found their plans and orders delayed by higher commanders and by political considerations. Later in the war their cause was severely hindered as the Allies had cracked the German ciphers and were reading their encrypted secret communications! Despite fine words, the western European powers could do little to aid Poland in her plight, especially after the Russian Army began a second invasion of eastern Poland in support of Germany.

Poland was conquered in the space of a single month, and the nations of Europe were now at war — but then nothing happened.

On 10 May the German Army began its expected attack on France, sweeping through the Low Countries, just as it had in Holland and Belgium quickly capitulated. But it was in the Ardennes, hilly and heavily forested, where the tanks unexpectedly broke through. This withdrawal turned into full-scale retreat as the Panzer columns thrust deep across France, sweeping aside all resistance.


The British counterattacked at Arras, but were still forced back towards the coast. The BEF began to evacuate its remaining troops from the coastal town of Dunkirk, abandoning France to defeat and occupation. France signed an armistice on 19 June Blitzkrieg had swept aside the two most powerful armies in Europe in just six weeks.

A Propagandakompanie cameraman captures images for the adoring German public By the German Army was perhaps at the zenith of its power. Norway had been invaded and soon surrendered. Greece followed. Crete was assaulted by an airborne armada and fell despite having far more troops defending it than were attacking. The invasion of Russia was a campaign on a new scale, vast in its ambitions, involving huge numbers of troops from Germany and her allies.

Millions of Soviet troops were captured in huge encirclements by the Panzer spearheads.
