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.

Assemble and paint your brave men and armoured tanks, field them on a table-top battlefield, and use all your strategy, cunning and luck to defeat your opponent.

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:

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.

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.
