My question is: with all the periods and armies that are available from Warlord, will there be "get you by" rules for things like US Marines, Japanese, Early War, in the basic book? I know there are the two supplements following very quickly - "Armies of Germany" and "Armies of the United States". Will the Marines be covered in the US supplement in depth?
All very curious for me. I have US Marines, IJA, and Fallschirmjager now - I would like to be able play with my toys right away!
this is the brief I found on my chapters.ca website:
Written by veteran game designers Alessio Cavatore and Sir Rick Priestley (ok, I added the knighthood), Bolt Action provides all the rules needed to bring the great battles of World War II to your tabletop. Using miniature soldiers, tanks and terrain, you can fight battles in the shattered towns of occupied France, the barren deserts of North Africa, and even the sweltering jungles of the Pacific. Players get to decide which of the major or minor World War II powers they would like to represent, and then construct their armies from the lists provided. Army options are almost limitless, allowing you to build the kind of army that most appeals to your style of play, from heavily armored tank forces to lightly armed, but highly skilled. The choice is yours. Created as a joint project between Warlord Games, the premiere historical miniatures company, and Osprey Publishing, the leading independent military history publisher, Bolt Action is sure to be the most popular new wargame on the market
