Bolt Action WW1 from Osprey




The recent slew of WW1 tanks gave it away but Osprey have just officially announced a publication date for Bolt Action WW1 rules of a year from now.  This is exciting because the Warhammer Historical WW1 rules were a dead end.  I am hoping that four years of WW1 coverage in the media and significant anniversaries will make the period a popular one so that  we get rules and scenarios for things like WW1 in East Africa which, with the early war period is what I am most interested in.

Disappointing coverage on the various documentary channels I feel. Why more re-runs of the World at War when there was a fascinating WW1 equivalent about the same time I don't understand. Wish I could remember what it was called.

I'd recommend the WW1 skirmish rules from Too Fat Lardies "Through the Mud and the Blood". Really very good.

Bolt Action? I do not understand the fuss or its success to be honest.
