Bolt Action Campaign The Road to Berlin

With the Ostfront supplement for Bolt Action, the campaign covered the "entire" activities that involved the Russian armies, beginning with the Winter war and Khalkin Gol. But this new supplement, Campaign The Road to Berlin, covers the very last years, from June 1944 until the crossing of the Spree.

Warlord Games goes into the detail on these years of the late war. Very much into detail indeed, with 148 pages this campaign supplement is the biggest so far. Campaign New Guinea is a couple of pages short with 132 pages, followed by Battle of the Bulge and Duel in the Sun both with 124 pages. So you get quite the bang for your 19.99 GBP or 30 USD. Shown above as first images of this review are the two covers, with the final cover (left) and the early cover (right), presented by Osprey in one of their product catalogues. This happens quite often, to promote an upcoming book, before the final decision on the artwork is done. We have already seen this with Duel in the Sun and Campaign New Guinea.

Bolt Action Campaign New Guinea

After Empire in Flames, Bolt Action revisites the far east with the supplement Campaign New Guinea.

With 132 pages, Campaign New Guinea set a short new high score for page load, trumping Battle of the Bulge and Duel in the Sun (both 124 pages), only second to the recently released The Road to Berlin (148 pages). This campaign supplement covers the part of the pacific wars on the planets second largest island, between the Japanese Empire and the Allied Forces (Australian and US American). The price tag on this book reads 19,99 GBP or 30 USD, which translates roughly into 25 EUR. I want to start this review with the comparison of the final cover (left) and the early cover (right), presented by Osprey in one of their product catalogues. Nothing unusual, we already saw different covers circulating early among others for Duel in the Sun as well.

Caesars Legion for SAGA

Why not try Saga around 200 B.C. – 200 A.D.?

The basic idea for a warband in this time were the plastic boxes by Warlord Games for Hail Caesar, the Caesar’s Legions to be precise. As this range currently receives a lot of love, last but not least due to the latest Hail Caesar Supplemet Age of Caesar, it was a good time to pick this idea up again.

Frostgrave Rulebook

This year, Osprey Games had a surprising release of Frostgrave, a fantasy skirmish in a frozen city. The release of a wargaming rule set, is nothing new for Osprey, so why is this one so popular?

Grenadiers and SCW

I subscribed to the the Wargames Illustrated digital, as their latest deal is just to good to pass it. A full year of WI issues and a Warlord Games plastic box in a bundle for 60 euros. I went for the brand new German Grenadier box (review to follow).

Tanks and Books

A small update, i used the current week to build a few tanks that arrived at the 'bunker. I bought the Alex Drawer Unit from Ikea a few weeks ago, perfect storage for miniatures. I got a drawer on its own just for vehicles. Quite a collection i gathered in the meantime for my american, british and german armies.
