Announcement: Invasion of Britain Summer Campaign

1 comment


Exciting news for Bolt Action players everywhere – our epic online summer campaign is the Invasion of Britain!

Inspired by the new Operation Sea Lion book, but expanded to let all Bolt Action armies get involved, you’ll be able to defend the White Cliffs of Dover, invade the docklands of Newcastle and battle over the munitions factories of Birmingham.

War is Coming:

Any army can take part, but as the events are set in the early-war period you may like to get prepared by building a suitable force. British LDV and BEF are perfect for the defenders and the Blitzkrieg German range is ideal for the invaders. Of course this is a ‘what-if’ campaign, so it’s easy to imagine the Americans coming to Britain’s aid or the Soviets coming across from Finland (but on which side?).

We’ll be running articles to help you build your force as well as creating tabletop battlefields to represent the green fields of Blighty! There are also lots more miniature releases on the way!
