I’m Peter, a game shop owner in Bellingham WA, USA. I have just recently brought Black Seas to my shelves, and finished up painting and rigging the M&C set.
I’m not surprised it is selling out everywhere, as it fills a market niche long abandoned by mainstream manufacturers, for the most part.1+November 19, 2019 at 12:10 pm #171831rnassifParticipant
Hi, I’ve lost the link to the special figures available to warlord members. Does anyone have that link handy ?? TY in advance!!!1+November 22, 2019 at 2:16 pm #171979CaratacusParticipant
Hello everyone, I’m Caratacus and have just started learning how to play SPQR.
For a long time I’ve been a player of Warhammer Fantasy, 40K (5th and 6th Editions) and the Middle Earth Strategy Battle Game, but am now taking my first steps into Warlord’s historical games having recently discovered a couple of model shops not too far from where I live (near Southampton) that stock Hail Caesar and SPQR minis.
I’m a big fan of ancient history (especially the Roman Invasions of Britain, hence my profile name) and am so pleased to have finally got my hands on some of Warlord’s great quality and affordable plastics. Will be building up Ancient British and Imperial Roman warbands for SPQR to begin with, as that requires far fewer models to start with, and will probably expand into Hail Caesar in the future!
I look forward to delving into the archives of wisdom this forum has amassed!3+December 5, 2019 at 4:08 pm #172369Mister ThryllseekyrParticipant
G’day, I’m from & currently reside in South East Queensland, Australia. In a small town called Ipswich. (Near Brisbane.) My only introduction to miniatures was games of Blood Bowl and Space Hulk with my friends along time ago. Apart from painting up the odd miniature for games of Dungeons & Dragons. I haven’t had much to do with them. Aside from playing Total War Warhammer One & Two. What I am really into is collecting 2000AD magazine. So, some time down the track. I may get the Strontium Dog and Judge Dredd Warlords game when I can spare the money. However for now, I have brought the Helter Skelter board game. Featuring both Johnny Aplha’s, Judge Dredd’s crew as well as Slaine, & Nicholai Dante. This game has miniatures as well.
Hoping for more 2000AD related stuff from Warlords in the near future.2+December 13, 2019 at 2:48 am #172634RenéParticipant

Hey all! Matt here, new to Bolt Action but I have also played some Blood Red Skies. I am mad keen on military history/history in general (have a history degree to boot) and am wrestling with the urge to go out and buy an army for every Warlord Games system…maybe one day though! Looking forward to joining in on the forum.

My name is Marcus, live in Mjölby, Sweden. I’m considering buying something from Warlordgames but I’m entirely new to this. Historically I’m interested in WWI, WWII, and the American civil war, have read a lot of books on the subject and have quite of the related GMT games. Now I look into combining my interest with miniature painting. Normally if I start something, I want to do it for real, but I must be honest and say that well then it will cost me I’m afraid. Would appreciate if someone could give me advice on what WG genre to look into, what to start with, things I need and other recommendations.
Thanks on beforehand,

Hello all. My name is Jim. I play out of Green Bay, Wisconsin. I play Bolt Action and have been building up forces for some fun BRS games in Burma. I am basically willing to play just about any historical wargame.0March 7, 2020 at 7:29 pm #174899Samuel V. Wilson, Jr.Participant
Hi! My name is Sam Wilson. I live in New Jersey. I play BA and K47. And my prime interest is WWII in Burma, too. My father was a Merrill’s Marauder, a 1LT at the time. He led an intelligence and reconnaissance platoon for the 1st Battalion all the way to Myitkyina before he was evacuated, being medically tagged “AOE”. . . accumulation of everything! To help me with my campaigning, I painted up Nisei as Chinese Nationalists. And I also use some Chindits and Gurkhas. I also had some Brits painted up as Indian army squads. So far I have hosted BA battles to represent actions in the first two campaigns: Shaduzup and Wallabum. I am pending doing the Myitkyina camapaign. All of these, as you probably know took place between February and early June of 1944.
I belong to a group . . . South Jersey Gamers Association (SJGA) we have an online forum: sjgaforum.discussion.community. Check us out!
Let me know how you approach gaming in Burma. I would be interested in knowing.
Meanwhile, good gaming!

I’m Emmanuel from France, a big fan of Blood Red Skies ! Since I was a child (quite a while ago…) I was interested in WWII aerial fighting and I wished for a game to play it, but I never had the time nor the will to play a complex simulation game, with lots of parameters to take into account.
BRS is just what I like, a game more than a simulation, but with lots interesting choices to be made all along, and a real challenge. It can be played even with children, and even if you haven’t played it for a while without needing to spend hours in the rulebook.
The scale is great, as 1:200 really allows for the masses, when the 1:72 planes I had in my childhood where way too big for large games, and really anoying (to my taste !) to assemble. WG planes are a real pleasure to paint.
My favorite Warlord Games game so far !
Next I’ll be playing Black seas I think…1+April 24, 2020 at 12:38 pm #177406JamieParticipant
I’m Jamie from Kingston upon Hull in the UK. I am new to war gaming. When I was a kid I used to collect miniature Napoleonic figures and had some space marines. Recently my wife was in a craft shop and I bought some Warhammer 40k Ultra Marine Intercessors to paint initially. I have nearly finished these now so for my birthday she bought me a Warhammer 40k starter set which I am just waiting to be delivered. I then came across Warlord and BlackPowder and I have ordered the Waterloo Starter Kit as it is a period I am greatly interested in.1+April 24, 2020 at 12:54 pm #177407AndrzejParticipant
Hi Jamie, I see we are in the same boat. Good Ladies we both have (mine is eager to buy me games for B-days). And same interests:). Having a nice collection of boxed figurine/tabletop games (WH40K and the like) I decided to give them some glueing and painting in these difficult times. Spray cans bought, the workshop is ready!
