The SDKFZ 247 Aust B

The SDKFZ 247 Aust B was a short run German recognisance vehicle during WW2.  It was small, it was fast and I definitely wanted one... or two for my late war German army.

Review: Warlord Games US Airborne

Warlord Games has some awesome metal figures.  One of their hands down, best lines, is their US Airborne troops.  These highly detailed figures are outstanding.  I can't say enough about how much I love these figures.

The LRDG Episode 24

The LRDG Episode 24! 

WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT. Dave O' War and the Mouth of Madness are joined by none other than Mr J. Juddd in a Trans-Pacific Party Pie of an episode. The guys discuss Season 2 of the Boltaction.net Format, as well as pondering 'Weird War' and World War I possibilities.


The Dreaded Einstossflammenwerfer- What IS It?

As World World War 2 ground on and Germany's relentless advance ground to half, the German military started mass producing weapons of last resort that if mass produced could stop Allied forces in their tracks and once again turn the tide of the war. Weapons such as the larger panzerfausts, the MP 3008 (the German copy of the British Sten gun), and the first assault rifles (and their cheap knock offs) started being issued to civilians and front line units alike. One of these last ditch weapons followed in the philosophy of the panzerfaust. The cheap and easy to make panzerfaust gave lowly infantry a much needed anti-tank bite against allied armour. Hoping to give inexperienced troops a similar advantage against enemy forces (especially in urban environments) the Germans developed the einstossflammenwerfer.

Bolt Action Season Two

Boltaction.net is gearing up for another exciting season of format.  With the wildly successful Season 1 almost done we are moving on to Season 2.  Season 2 will include changes to the Season 1 format and introduce some new format rules of its own.  For those not familiar with the Boltaction.net format, every six month the Boltaction.net crew is putting out a set of rules adjustments to be play tested.  Now that Bolt Action has been out for almost three years many veterans have found several rules issues which we all hope are addressed in the far distant Version Two of Bolt Action.  The format is a community effort to play test through some simple rules ideas and hope that one day we can had our research over to influence the future of the game.  Format is also intended to try to bring balance to the games unbalanced bits.

Examining The Trenchworx T-28

Hey Gang,

For those of you following The Tanks in Manchuria Kickstarter, you may be asking about Trenchworx, the company running the project. We at Boltaction.net have watched Trenchworx start out as a 3D printing hobby project on our forums and evolve over time into the maker of some truly beautiful resin kits. A little while ago I got my paws on their new T28 kit and it has taken me a little time to get it done and I am glad to share my thoughts about this glorious monster of a tank.
