Warlord Games have announced that a new edition of Bolt Action is coming this year. The 2nd Edition of both the Rulebook and Armies of Germany will be coming in the Autumn of 2016. They also have news on the launch date of Konflikt ’47 where things get all Weird World War…
Bolt Action 2nd Edition
All games need to be refined and eventually the FAQ documents have to turn into proper changes. So, they are updating the rules using existing FAQ material and errata to make the game more streamlined and refined.
“This second edition presents streamlined and refined rules, incorporating all the FAQs and errata compiled, with the help of the Bolt Action community, over the four years of extensive gameplay since Bolt Action was first launched.
The new rulebook remains fully compatible with all of the existing range of army books, theatre books and models.”
Armies of Germany as you can see above is also getting an overhaul…
“Revised and expanded, this book provides players with all of the information they need to command Germany’s military might. Detailed unit options and theatre selectors allow players to build armies for any of Germany’s campaigns, from the Blitzkrieg against Poland and France, through North Africa and the Eastern Front, to the fall of Normandy and the defence of Germany.
They have also stipulated that the rest of the Armies books won’t be seeing updates and that they are all compatible with the new 2nd Edition of Bolt Action that will hit later this year.
Konflikt ’47 & Weird World War
As well as the actual Historical battling there is also more news on Konflikt ’47 and a lovely piece of cover art.
You expect to play this game made in partnership with Clockwork Goblin in Summer 2016 so not too far away!
“Konflikt ’47 is a standalone game inspired by the hugely successful Bolt Action. Adding to the core rules that many gamers are familiar with from Bolt Action, Konflikt ’47 allows the addition of completely new types of units and models to existing 28mm Bolt Action armies and the creation of completely new forces set in the alternate future of 1947.”
It will be interesting to see how many people cross over and start using some of their existing Bolt Action forces for this new game. I like that they’re adding in the new contraptions but retaining a lot of what makes World War II what it is.
What do you think of these developments?
