Lead From The Front With Warlord’s New Plastic IS-2 Soviet Tank

February 11, 2017 by brennon

The Soviets of Bolt Action get some heavy duty support this weekend with the release of a new plastic kit from Warlord Games for the IS-2 Heavy Tank.

IS-2 Heavy Tank

So what’s inside this set?

  • Enough plastic components to make the IS-2 heavy tank!
  • Full-colour detailed construction booklet.
  • Full-colour waterslide decals.
  • A 8-man squad of infantry that can used as tank riders or normal infantry!
  • A stat card which holds all the essential info you need to use your tank!
  • A set of damage markers for that real psychological (& cinematic) effect!

Not bad! It’s neat that you get some extras to make this more than just a simple tank kit. The damage markers and extra soldiers are welcome additions to give something else to work on as your tank is coming together.

IS-2 Heavy Tank #1

This tank was an utter beast. It was heavily armoured and armed and could roll right through a German line and keep on going.

IS-2 Heavy Tank #2

By its very nature, it was a breakthrough tank that would try and pound a hole in the enemy lines so that the rest of your force could pour through and surge at the enemy. When you combine a tank like this with hordes of infantry you have a frightening prospect as getting close enough to take one out would be tough!

What do you think?
