You might remember that we took a look at the teaser cover for Konflikt ’47 a few weeks ago from Warlord Games and Clockwork Goblin. Well, now the full cover has been revealed and we’ve got a look inside the boxed sets for both the US and the Germans so you can plan out that new force you’ve been working on…
Pre-orders are now open for you to go and pick up both the rulebook and the two Starter Sets. New units are going to be joining the existing Bolt Action range giving it that Weird World War spice that you’ve been looking for on the tabletop.
We’ll first take a look at the US Starter Army which comes chock-a-block with all kinds of new toys.
As you can see it comes with all the things that you’ll need to get started in the game as well as the models. With that in mind let’s take a look at said models. Here’s the rather epic M4A9 Sherman-T Medium Tank.
It has gone with the old school chassis mixed with a modern turret which is all about that energy blasting holes through armour. The US also come with a big walker called the Coyote.
I do really like the American walkers. The design is great; the casing for the pilot being a fantastic shell. The weapon arms look neat and dangerous too which is always good. The Americans also have Heavy Infantry taking the fight to the Germans on an Infantry level.
When you can arm your soldiers with big guns like that you won’t have much of a problem pinning down the enemy troops. Now they all just need cigars in their mouths so they can blast away the enemy and look cool at the same time.
Following on from the US we also have the German Army which has started to dabble within the world of the weird in different ways.
First off, instead of looking at the armour, I want to take a look at the Totenkorps which are shambling zombies surging forward to swarm your lines. I doubt pinning works very well against them…
It wouldn’t be Weird World War however without the addition of some Walkers and the Germans have that too in the form of the Spinne Light Panzermech.
More of a moving gun turret than a walker it doesn’t have the same appeal to me as the US Coyote but I think that the design is great and to see a few of these on the battlefield hosing down the enemy lines would be terrific.
They also have the crazy looking Pz IV-X Schewere Feldprojektor which is something else entirely!
It’s going to be interesting seeing where the game goes and I’d love to see them put together a battle report or something of that ilk so that people can get a handle on the new rules and how it all works. With a basis in Bolt Action though it should be very simple to get into.
What do you think of the sets?
