Bolt Action

28mm World War II Wargaming

From Blitzkrieg to North Africa, from the Russian Front to the D-Day Landings, Bolt Action puts YOU in command of the most brutal and famous battles of the Second World War.

What You Need

To get started with Bolt Action World War II wargaming you'll need two players, two armies, a copy of the rulebook and of course somewhere to play. Bolt Action Starter Set

Two Armies

You can play a fun game with just a squad or two each, and your forces will soon expand ready for bigger battles. Get started with US forces or German forces.

Rulebook

The rules explain how to fight a battle, issuing orders to your units to move, shoot or assault at close quarters. They also cover how to pick two evenly matched forces and provide a range of exciting scenarios to fight out! View Rulebook

A Table

Some gamers like to build a fully modelled battleground, but you can have a brilliant game on the kitchen table. Try to avoid having to abandon your battle for the evening meal though. You can even play on the floor - just watch out for careless feet or marauding cats!

Some Terrain

For an entertaining game of Bolt Action, it's important to give your troops some cover and objectives to seize on the battlefield. Besides, creating the scene is part of the appeal of World War 2 wargaming. You can buy terrain or build it from scratch, but for your first few games, a pile of books serves well as a hill and a few boxes as a buildings. 28mm WW2 Terrain

Collect an Army

Putting together a Bolt Action force is lots of fun and there is a huge array of choices. Start with your infantry and then add vehicles and artillery. Get started with British forces or Soviet forces.

Paint Your Models

A fully painted army is an awesome sight and a great achievement, and this part of the wargaming hobby is just as rewarding as playing battles. Start simply and your skills will quickly improve as you practice. View Painting Guides

Fight a Battle

The Bolt Action rulebook contains six scenarios that allow you to fight out World War II battles. Each scenario explains how to set up the battlefield, where to deploy your forces and the objectives required to win the game.

Armies Books

Armies books contain detailed information, rules and history for the forces of a particular nation. Each book has army lists which detail the units that historically fought together at different stages in World War II. View Armies Books

Theatre Books

These Bolt Action supplements each focus on a particular theatre of operations from World War 2 such as the Eastern Front or the Pacific. Each book provides detailed history, scenarios, army lists and rules for specific historical units and characters, allowing the player to immerse themselves further into the specific conflict.

Tank War

While the core rules of Bolt Action are based on infantry platoons with a handful of supporting vehicles, Tank War allows you to field armoured platoons - entire armies of tanks, armoured cars and mechanised infantry. Included are rules for vehicle crews gaining experience over a series of games and for fielding legendary tank aces!
