Just starting – army building questions
December 13, 2021 at 3:32 pm #186875
My local gaming store is getting ready to start playing Bolt Action and so we all have a lot of questions. I understand that the normal game size is 1000 points. I am trying to figure out the best way to order an army to get to 1000 points. Can you tell me on average how many points come in those army boxes? I am looking at the US Army box (the one that comes with like 36 troops, a Sherman and a half-track and a few other things). Is there a good source for list building and help in early purchase suggestions for new players? Thank you!December 13, 2021 at 3:58 pm #186876NatParticipant
The warlord starter armies have a 1K list included…. they often have a couple of models left over.
As a rough guide go to wg.easyarmy. com (space left out) – however there are a couple of list errors & it contains units / Theater lists from ALL the armies of… books and the campagin books.

Great thank you for letting me know that. Seems like I can get playing with just the one box for now!December 13, 2021 at 5:38 pm #186879Jacob CarterParticipant
Couple things I’d recommend building with the kit that I’m not sure are on the list on the box would be a bazooka team and Forward Air Observer.
You’ll probably face a lot of heavy armor if you go against Germans so the AT option of a bazooka will be valuable and the Americans have a faction rule allowing them two call in 2 air strikes instead of 1
You can easily build those with the plastic infantry so you won’t need to buy anything else to make thoseDecember 13, 2021 at 8:30 pm #186880
Thanks for that info. I can’t wait to begin building these guys and playing!
