1. Choose Your Allegiance
Bolt Action players generally concentrate on collecting the forces of one particular country. You'll be spending a lot of time painting and playing with your army, so choose wisely!
2. Army Books
Armies books contain detailed information, rules and history for the forces of a particular nation.
Each book has army lists which detail the units that historically fought together at different stages in World War II.
3. Theatre Books
These Bolt Action supplements each focus on a particular theatre of operations from World War 2 such as the Eastern Front or the Pacific.
Each book provides detailed history, scenarios, army lists and rules for specific historical units and characters, allowing the player to immerse themselves further into the specific conflict.
4. Tank War
While the core rules of Bolt Action are based on infantry platoons with a handful of supporting vehicles, Tank War allows you to field armoured platoons - entire armies of tanks, armoured cars and mechanised infantry.
Included are rules for vehicle crews gaining experience over a series of games and for fielding legendary tank aces!
5. Intelligence Gathering
