What do I need to get started with Bolt Action?
To get started with Bolt Action we would recommend looking at www.boltaction.com for inspiration then purchasing a starter set from our website. Further information can be found on our Bolt Action Facebook page and on our Forum
We’d also highly recommend searching for your local gaming club via the GCN Club Finder – or using our ‘Bolt Action opponent finder’ to look for like-minded gamers and new opponents in your area.

What scale are your miniatures?
Our models are 28mm – also known as 1/56… Yes you can use 1/50 vehicles as well – whatever works for you is fine. There is no definitive right answer. Some players use 1/50, some use 1/48, – it’s down to personal preference – whatever looks right to you, is the correct solution for you.
Our Doctor Who Into the Time Vortex range are the exception; they are 38mm tall.
How do I assemble THIS kit/where are instructions to assemble THIS kit…

We’re sorry to hear that you are having problems with our forum, please contact us here with your user name and the email address used to sign up to the forum so we can look into this for you.
I am in a VAT exempt region…
We have now set a global price point for all our products which in turn has enabled us to be able to issue an RRP.
This change was implemented when we introduced the new web store which has set the same price for everyone regardless of country, tax is now not removed during checkout as it isn’t included. Therefore unlike the old web store which had the old pricing structure there are no deductions applied in the shopping cart.
This has also allowed us to keep our shipping the same to everywhere.
My question isn’t listed here, what do I do?
