The new campaign book has plenty to offer, from focusing on a narrative point of view on history, to new theatre selectors and brand new units including a crazy new spinning death wheel. We can guarantee that the new rules are also up to scratch on the bizarre and fun chart:

Clumsy Handling

After the miracle of Dunkirk, a lot of British and nearly all the French and Belgium equipment was considered lost which included a lot of vehicles. Because of this, the British forces were forced to use older vehicles or improvise civilian ones and as a consequence, none of these vehicles were truly ideal for most of the situations they were placed in. Roll a D6 if the vehicle is given a Run order, on a result of 1 it turns over and is wrecked, 2 or 3 it doesn’t move at double speed, 4+ it successfully moves at full speed.
German Pioniers make short work of the hastily erected British defences

Countryfolk

Nearly every type of person has stepped up and offered to protect Britain, from boy scouts to postmen, to huntsmen and country folk. Naturally, some of these volunteers are more adept with weaponry because of their hunting experiences, as a result: they receive a +1 morale when in natural soft cover, and a +1 to hit when shooting.
German forces push through the Home Counties countryside

Dangerous

The threat of a German invasion sparked a brief era of ingenuity and improvisation however with this rush of pride and patriotism to protect one’s country, this led to some corners being cut during certain weapon development stages. As a result, certain weapons tend to blow up and kill the crew along with it. If the result is a 1 when rolling to hit, roll the die again; on a second 1 the gun explodes killing it crew.
Raus! Raus! German grenadiers pile out of their landing barges and onto English sand

Incendiary

Many distinct types of weapons have been tested, with numerous variations and alterations, however simplicity has a beauty of its own, and nothing can be simpler than fire, or in this case, incendiary shells. If this weapon hits a vehicle, it causes no damage. Instead, roll a die: on a 4+ it sets the vehicle on fire as if the player had rolled a 3 on the damage results table in the Bolt Action rulebook.
A Northover Projector anti-tank gun team improvise and turn their weapon upon onrushing German infantry

Roller Skates

Mobility has always been crucial in war, the ability to react quickly and appropriately is essential. And whilst riding around on Roller skates isn’t the most military looking thing to do, they certainly get the job done! A unit equipped with Roller skates have a basic move of 9″ (run 18″) provided it is on a flat surface. Any other form of terrain permissible to infantry, the unit has a basic move of 3″ (6″ run), you can remove the roller skates permanently by giving the unit a rally or down order.
And so it begins - the Germans land in England
