Bolt Action Tournaments!

There is a growing tournament scene for games of Bolt Action and whilst many prefer to play the game with forces based on historical actions we wanted to fill you in on a few events that are in the pipeline. Of course, we would love to hear about any you may be planning!

We are going to be creating a database of all the events happening around the world and will be updating all the time so please drop us an email to: If you could give us the information of your event in a similar format to that seen below we will help spread the word (any pictures of your group playing games are actively encouraged!). Of course putting them on our Forum and Facebook pages is a great idea too.
