Warlord Games has announced a new Strategic Board Game called Combined Arms! This allows you to play out a larger-scale conflict during World War II, taking to land, air and sea.

Players take control of infantry, naval, armoured and air units by alternatively issuing orders during your Orders phase. The easiest goal is going to be to control five objectives although you'll also need to get your hands on enough victory points in order to win. This could be through controlling Cultural Centres, Radar Stations and more. All of these net you points and campaign bonuses.

The game looks quick and easy to play and is given depth and replay value through the addition of the Resolution Deck. This card is flipped at the end of a turn and will guide the changing fates of your armies on the tabletop. You can also use Initiative Cards from your hand in order to control the flow of battle.

Combined Arms can be played out over a variety of different theatres of war. You can head to Northwest Europe, The Eastern Front, North Africa and the Pacific. All of these maps come with new challenges for you to undertake with your armies.

The game comes with plastic miniatures representing each of the different unit types as well as strategic locations on the tabletop.

You also have those Blitz Markers (the arrows) to represent fast moving units on the tabletop. This looks like a tight way to play out a section of World War II without having to worry about painting up loads and loads of miniatures!

Combine This With Your Wargames!

As well as having the rules for playing out the game as a board game, you can also use this to represent a larger campaign played out in Bolt Action, Victory At Sea or Blood Red Skies. Or, all three!

Certain cards get replaced from the deck to allow this to be turned into a campaign game. So, rather than this playing out in an hour or so, the game expands for use amongst your gaming group. A pretty nifty idea for those who love larger scale tabletop gaming experiences.

A Special Blood Red Skies Miniature!

If you pre-order Combined Arms this weekend, you'll also get the chance to snag this exclusive miniature.

This miniature is going to be available alongside the various bundled options from Warlord Games. You'll find bundles available for Bolt Action, Victory At Sea and Blood Red Skies. It would be neat to see people putting this to use!

Are you tempted by Combined Arms?
