PRE-ORDER C3M4 COMBAT DRONE

The largest piece of Antarean hardware yet is now available to pre-order, and it’s a full-plastic kit!

The C3M4 is the standard template fighting drone in the Concord Combined Command, and is also employed by various Freeborn houses as well.

They are usually armed with a plasma cannon and plasma light support to deal with enemy troops and lightly armoured vehicles – however, they also have the option of carrying either a Fractal Cannon or Compression Cannon to tackle more heavily armoured targets.

BEYOND THE GATES OF ANTARES AT SALUTE 2016

This past weekend saw the UK’s largest wargames show – Salute 2016 – drawing thousands upon thousands of gamers and hobbyists to London’s Docklands.

Of course, Beyond the Gates of Antares was there in force – with three demo tables which saw non-stop action all day, a stand packed with stock, and Rick on-hand to field questions and queries all day – let’s take a look!

If you weren’t able to attend the show, don’t panic – we’ve gathered as many photographs as we could, and today we’re showcasing some of the Antares miniatures which were on show – so take a look by clicking here…

WARLORD STUDIO UPDATE

Just before we set off for the show, we posted another quick update from the design studio – revealing what’s currently being worked upon – click here for info!

C3M4 COMBAT DRONE

The latest release for both the Concord and Freeborn forces is the C3M4 Combat Drone – the first plastic vehicle kit for Antares…

M4 series drones carry various support weapons but are usually armed with a plasma cannon and plasma light support for dealing with enemy troops and lightly armoured vehicles –  however, they also have the option of replacing the main armament with either a Fractal Cannon or Compression Cannon for more specialised application.

Both the forces of the Concord and the vast fleets of the mercantile Freeborn have access to the C3M4 – and the first ones have started to hit Antarean tabletop battlefields over the past few days since Salute 2016!

9th Reconnaissance Battalion heads to Bolt Action Nationals! (Part II)

Posted on March 25th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

Adepticon is less than one week away and  I’d be remiss if I didn’t do the usual and post my current army finished and ready to for the Bolt Action National Championships next weekend.  Aaron and I actually got a test game in last weekend,  I was quite happy with how these guys played even with our game being a draw.

a whole squad of these guys are the SS Charlemagne Models who come with cast on patches, did my best to make them fit , authentic or not.

For my 9th Recon Platoon incarnation of my Hohenstaufen, I had to paint 4 new vehicles and about dozen troops plus a flamer team for this current  version of my German army. While I still have some boxes on the shelf  (mainly vehicles) that need built  at this point I can field well over 2000 points fully painted on the table.

Painting this current crop of models took me awhile and a lot of  late nights, I went a high as detail as I could via my skill set, most models have at least 2 some 3 layers of highlights. I also painted a lot of badges on the new guys something I hadn’t done before and used some individual decals on the some of the plastic models that snuck their way in. With the vehicles with the weathering and decals are a patience drill, rush it and it doesn’t look right.

Despite my Best Appearance award with my Brits in the singles last year, I have no disillusions of winning it again, I am sure it being a sponsored by Warlord Games as the  “U.S National Championship”  I’ll see a pretty diehard group, I know a couple of local multi Golden Demon winning players that are now Bolt Action players, not sure if they are playing but if so there will be some serious models on display I am sure.  I’m just looking to have some fun and win some games, because unlike WFB, I am actually a pretty decent player when I roll with a decent army.

The only hiccup in my list is can’t run my Captured Humber as an actual Humber, as Warlord has had the model out for years but has not released any rules for captured vehicles, which I think is a balance issue over an oversight. So my Humber MkIV will perform as a 6 Rad German Armored car which really means I just lose the Anti Tank gun and get another Autocannon.  I hurts me a bit as I only have one AT gun besides my Panzerfausts but its should be ok. I’m not expecting a lot of big tanks,  from any experienced players.
This is SdKfz 251/10 which mounts a Pak 36 and has the command special rule my HQ roll in this
As for Bolt Action, after this I’ll be on a break from that for awhile, There is new summer tournament in July I wont be able to attend, but I’ll be back for Operation Sting in the fall, with my Germans or possibly my British, with two squads of Gorgon Miniatures excellent British Infantry waiting to be built and both a Sherman and Cromwell tank, I definitely need to give them some attention. What ever I run it will have a new display board..I wanted to do one for this event but just didn’t have the time.
HQ getting dastardly
I’ll be at the hotel hanging out at Adepticon as of Thursday night my kids are with me so Friday we are going to play some games and hit the vendor hall, and probably some demos, I am bringing my Frostgrave board and a couple of warbands for that along as well so  I hope to find some pickup gaming space since both my Daughters and a couple friends expressed interest in playing that . So if you know me come on over and say hello, and since I am not playing anything until Saturday, I might actually get some blogging going on from the event as well, its been years since I have done that. Of course I’ll be back with full write up on my exploits the week after the event.
I love this vintage filter almost looks like it could be a real picture, almost

Bolt Action – Review: Warlord Games Plastic Tiger I Ausf E

Posted on March 17th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

By Rob White

Charging forward in search of prey, her mere presence brings dread and fear to a beleaguered commonwealth army. In the hands of a crafty desert fox the Allies are now out-armoured and out-gunned by a newly arrived technological marvel of the battlefield. En garde boys, the cats come out to play!

Yes comrades, I’m indeed here to talk about Warlord’s plastic Tiger I or Panzerkampfwagen VI (If were feeling particularly hairy under the neck). First off, you might be asking why I own a Tiger or even why I would use it in Bolt Action.

Well to start, being shallow and abundantly stupid, I’m a sucker for aesthetics – I do indeed think some tanks are “prettier then others” and whilst I generally favour the ugly step children of the tank world (early Soviet armour), I do have an intractable proclivity for German hardware. In this respect I do love the work Warlord/Italeri have put into this kit. Their model is sleek, well detailed and ridiculously easy to assemble. Coming straight off the sprue, this number took about 30-40 minutes to assemble, but also presented none of the usual challenges I face with plastic kits (one by one track assembly can take a walk!). I did opt to remove the antenna as I found it to be a little vulnerable during transportation. I can proudly say however that this puppy (or should I say kitty?) is rugged. I’m particularly clumsy and managed to already drop the unfortunate thing on my hardwood floor – result? No damage! Good outcome as this is both financially beneficial and historically accurate – Thumbs up Warlord!

Going beyond mere looks and assembly, the Tiger I is undoubtedly iconic. When harking back to my childhood reading commando comics, watching war movies with the old man and playing computer games like Close Combat, Commandos, Medal of Honour etc. the Tiger tank unfailingly took centre stage at some point, striking shock and awe into my very soul. I always admired the David and Goliath struggle between a menacing Tiger and the plucky allies throwing everything but the kitchen sink at a seemingly impenetrable beast! I would hazard a guess and suggest that many people share similar feelings, with this machine being a major focus of nostalgia and interest. For these reasons alone any Bolt Action player with a German Army really should have a Tiger on show.

But whilst it’s great reminiscing and infinitely staring at a beautiful model on the hobby table it’s another thing to actually play with it. So, how does the Tiger rate on the tabletop? Reading into the history of the Tiger tank alone might get you excited about the possibilities for this tank. With a gun taken from a Flak 88, almost impenetrable frontal armour and a propensity to make any opposing force soil its proverbial trousers on sight, leaves me buzzing with feigned apprehension!

Some Beyond the Gates of Antares news from warlord Games…

++Welcome to IMTel*++

(*integrated machine intelligence)

By integrating yourself with the machine you will be the first to find out everything there is to know about Beyond the Gates of Antares by Rick Priestley.
After a brief hiatus, we return to the Warlord Games campaign this week – a disturbance amid the ambient static amid the TOR 701 atmosphere sees a new threat emerging (in purple, no less!).

Let us know how you’re getting on with Antares over in the official Facebook group.

ANTARES: TOR 701 BATTLE REPORT

Last week saw the first sightings of Isorian releases appear on the Warlord webstore – and it was never going to be long before they also emerged around the Warlord offices and onto the tabletop battlefields of TOR 701…

Warlorders Bernard and Charlie took time to throw some dice this week – pitting the forces of the Algoryn against the new foe, in a Rescue mission – who will prevail?  – let’s take a look!

Read the article by clicking here…

ORDER NOW – ISORIAN SKIRMISH FORCE

If you’re new to Beyond the Gates of Antares, and you’re interested in collecting an Isorian force, look no further…

We’ve specifically designed the Isorian Skirmish Force to offer a solid core force from which you can expand – we’ve suggested an Army List around the 500pt mark which can be built – however, you can of course play around with additional equipment and Army Options – or could even experiment with fielding smaller squads… so there is plenty of scope for personalisation and list tweaking…

This Army Deal contains;
– 1 x Senatex Command Squad
– 2 x Senatex Phase Squads
– 1 x Senatex Support Team with X-Launcher
– 1 x Nhamak SC Light Support Drone armed with Plasma Light Support

Bolt Action – Warlord Games Resin BT42 Review

Posted on March 11th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

By Tristan

For quite sometime now I’ve toyed with the idea of getting away from the Americans and the British and exploring a minor nation. If you listen to either the Baconburgers or the Ghost Army Podcast, you may be aware that eventually my quest has led me to the Finnish army. Upon looking at the army lists and the amazing troop options that the Finns are allowed, I cast my eyes to the tanks and their armour options.
