Overview

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. 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. 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, from heavily armored tank forces to lightly armed, but highly skilled. The choice is yours. Created as a joint project between Warlord Games, the premiere historical miniatures company, and Osprey Publishing, the leading independent military history publisher, Bolt Action is sure to be the most popular new wargame on the market.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Osprey Publishing and Warlord Games have joined forces to produce the latest 28mm World War II miniatures game Bolt Action, which pits players against each other, fielding platoon-level forces from various stages and theatres of the War. This sleek, elegant, and simple ruleset is sure to take its place in the historical wargaming community, as it provides a tournament-grade system in a scale not yet seen standardized. The main rulebook contains everything a player needs to start playing, minus dice and miniatures. It includes four standard army lists for players to choose from featuring Germany, the United States Army, the British Commonwealth, and the USSR. Each army list gives players plenty of options to build their army.” —Game Trade Magazine

“...provides all the rules needed to bring the battles of World War II to a tabletop game, and is a pick for any who would re-enact army encounters.” —James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review
