Armies of Germany pre orders for Bolt Action open

October 13th, 2016

Armies of Germany 2nd Edition’ is a supplement for the award winning tabletop war game Bolt Action from Warlord Games.

The book deals with the German Army of World War II. Within you will find background and details of the German Army’s organisation and equipment from the beginning of the war (the invasion of Poland in 1939) to the very end (the fall of Berlin in 1945).

Central to this book is its Army List. This includes all the information you will need to play games using the German Army. This large list details all the main troop types, vehicles and equipment fielded by the Germany Army during World War II. Alongside this main list are a number of Theater Selectors, which give the force details for different periods and theaters of the war. These are not definitive, but are designed to give a theater-specific flavor and character to a force. Over six years of fighting the German Army changed a lot, and many units and vehicles that were common in 1939 were obsolete by 1945 – and there were countless oddities and exceptions on every front. These sub-lists allow players to select forces suitable for the theater in which they are playing.

Warlord Games taking preorders for Age of Caesar supplement for Hail Caesar

October 5th, 2016

With the Age of Caesar supplement for Hail Caesar, you are invited to come, see and conquer for yourself in a series of new scenarios representing key battles in the career of Julius Caesar.

Warlord Games take a detailed look at the armies of Rome and her enemies, and consider the lives of some of the greatest Roman commanders of them all, together with suitable rules to represent them on the tabletop.

Gaius Julius Caesar was surely the most famous Roman of all time – conqueror, statesman and founder of an empire that would shape the destiny of the world. What’s more, we know just how great a commander he was because he took the trouble to write and tell us so, recording his heroic exploits in all their gloriously impressive detail.

Join the mighty Caesar at the beginning of his glittering career of conquest and refight one of his most famous battles against those heinous enemies of civilisation, the dreaded Germans led by none other than that ambitious fiend Ariovistus of the Suebi. March with Caesar’s legions into the land of implacable savages as our hero subjugates the barbarous Gauls and confronts that most dangerous of moustachioed monstrosities the treacherous chieftain of the Arverni tribe, Vercingetorix. Cross the Rubicon and cast your own dice as Caesar pursues his rival Romans across continents in the Roman Civil War, facing his most deadly challenge yet in the form of famed conqueror of the East, Pompey the Great. Fight by Caesar’s side as he wages war for mastery of the Roman World upon battlefields soaked in Roman blood.

Regretfully we cannot tarry, as did Caesar, in the arms of Egypt’s beautiful Queen Cleopatra, but we can join him for the concluding battles of the Civil War in Africa, where we shall at last confront Caesar’s relentless opponents together with the armies of that inveterate enemy of Rome, King Juba of Numidia.

 

PDF Black Powder Supplements

BP-Zulu-BonN-fan-MC

August 2nd, 2016

Warlord Games are offering 2 supplements in PDF form for the Black Powder games system focusing on the actions during 1879 and 1884!

Zulu! is Warlord Games Black Powder supplement covering the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879.

This lavish 92 page supplement chronicles such legendary battles as Isandlwana, Rorke’s Drift and Ulundi. Zulu! brings you not only the background for these momentous battles but other, less well known conflicts as well as rules and force listings – all wrapped up with the usual photographs of beautifully painted miniature and armies!

You’ve seen the silver screen version of events in Zulu and Zulu Dawn – now you can refight these classic engagements on the tabletop…

With Blood on the Nile you can take charge of the British army fighting in the desert, or assume command of the Mahdi’s forces in their struggle against the world’s greatest military power. Along the way, learn about the battles and campaigns of the Mahdist Wars, and the soldiers who served in them.

They charged out of the shimmering desert, thousands of fanatical warriors dressed in white, brandishing fearsome weapons. These were the Mahdi’s men and a British soldier’s worst nightmare. The Mahdi had emerged from the wilderness to lead a rebellion against the Egyptian government in Sudan. His armies overwhelmed the Egyptians and trapped Governor Gordon in Khartoum. The British launched a relief expedition, but it arrived too late. Such an insult to the Empire could not go unpunished, and the British returned to crush the Mahdists. Sudan then came under British Imperial control, but, like shifting sands, history could have turned out very differently.

Warlord Games releases The Devils Playground Supplement for Pike & Shotte

TDP-Feature

May 6th, 2015

Now available from Warlord Games , their very first Pike & Shotte supplement covering the devastating Thirty Years War; The Devils Playground supplement.

The Thirty Years War was a series of conflicts that ravaged large areas of Europe, especially the German provinces, from 1618 to 1648. These conflicts centred on the Habsburg Holy Roman Emperors, Ferdinand II and Ferdinand III, and their opponents. Although viewed by many as a religious war between Catholic and Protestant nations, its roots and causes were also politically motivated. The combination of religious fervour and the political ambition of the European superpowers were to pit vast armies and mighty leaders against each other. The devastation caused by decades of fighting had truly turned Europe into the ‘Devil’s Playground’.

This supplement for Pike & Shotte describes the history, armies, personalities and battles of the Thirty Years War. Included are scenarios based on some of the famous battles and army lists for the main protagonists.
