Warsaw, City of Ruins and Warlord's New Bolt Action WWII Game!

Recently stumbled upon these intense images of the City of Ruins created by Platige Image for the Warsaw Rising Museum. It is a recreation of the devastation wrought on the city of Warsaw in WWII.

63,000 model buildings were created from 1,600 historical photos.

35 historical objects were recreated in great detail. 

It took 30 artists 6 months to compose and 2 months of continuous rendering.

These images are intense and yes we'll tie them into gaming with Warlord's recent release of Bolt Action WWII fighting game. 

This is a joint project between Warlord Games and Osprey Publishing, the leading independent military history publisher. It was written by legendary gamers Alessio Cavatore and Rick Priestley so it's sure to be a hit.

Rick does a great job describing the size of games here.
Bolt Action provides the rules needed to bring the historic battles of World War II to your tabletop battleground. Using figures, vehicles and terrain, you can fight battles in the shattered city of Warsaw. You can even choose which of the World War II powers you'd like to general, and then construct armies from the lists provided. Armies include the major powers as well as Poland, Belgium and Partisans!

Army options give you a wide variety to build the kind of army that most appeals to your style of play.

If you do want to defend Warsaw, you can pick up a Polish 7TP Tank Platoon (3 tanks) from Warlord Miniatures.

You can even choose between the single or twin turreted models

Pick up a box set of early war Polish Infantry too.

Or if it's to late, grab some partisans for your resistance to disrupt and destroy enemy communications and infrastructure

But no matter what you do,
Have a Great Battle!
