Pre-Order Wave 2 Hardback Rulebook

Pre-Order Wave 2 Band of Brothers


The new edition offers the same fantastic World War II gameplay with its exciting order dice system and mixed armies of infantry, tanks and artillery.

Key New Features

Officers activate other units! Used cleverly, this creates a huge tactical shift as you can order multiple units to fire or advance in concert.

Big Explosions! HE fire now uses templates to determine damage – your opponent had better spread out his troops to avoid carnage!

Armed Transports! Once your squad has piled out of its halftrack, the driver can speed around and unleash a hail of lead at the enemy!

Player Feedback! We’ve listened carefully to the community and taken advantage of the thousands of battles you’ve played to improve the game in dozens of other ways. Keep your eyes peeled over the coming weeks to find out more!


Warlorder Ches introduces Beasts Of War crew Justin and John to the new rules changes in second edition:

New Army List

The main rulebook now includes a fifth army list – adding Imperial Japan to Germany, Great Britain, USA and the Soviet Union – giving you even more choice for your army.


Special Figure

As you would expect we have a fantastic new figure specially made and FREE for those ordering the book direct from the Warlord Webstore: General George Smith Patton Jr.


General George Smith Patton Jr. (November 11, 1885 – December 21, 1945) was a senior officer of the United States Army, who is perhaps best known for his ‘flamboyant’ leadership and the pair of Ivory handled Colt single-action Army .45 revolvers (1 later replaced with a 3 ½ inch Smith and Wesson .357 magnum). A perfect commander for your US armies, from the Mediterranean and on into the European Theaters in Bolt Action.
