Unboxing Assault on Normandy Set

I received my Warlord Demo kit in the mail and thought this would be a fine opportunity to show new players what could perhaps be the best deal out there in the Warlord line for new players...

A nice heavy box! Great artwork!

The first item. A hardback rule book, not some small thin cheap booklet.

After the rules is a get started sheet, with a cardboard topper to protect the book and models.

Of course you can read the box or check online for the contents. Of course there are 20 American and 20 German figures, a ruined building, 8 dice (4/4 grey/green) and 5 accessory sprues.


  1. Looks very nice, though I can't really afford the time to get into this.

    1. Yea, every hobby is a bit expensive to get into. What is cool is this set could be split with a friend or family member making it more cost effective. I do admit that the cost of getting into Bolt Action isn't as bad as most people think. For under $200 which would include both the core rules and a nation book you could get a 1000+ point force together very easy. Plus you could also shop other product lines like Black Tree, Plastic Soldier, Wargames Factory, find cheaper alternatives to building up your forces.

  2. This does look like a nice kit. I almost bought it a few months ago but decided not to, as I don't want to invest the money in yet ANOTHER game I might not play. I've also got plenty of German WW2 figures already...

    Now if I had folks to play the game with near story would quickly change. :P

    1. Well, you already have the figures. So you are already most of the way there. Which is nice about WW2 games, if you have the figs, going from rules to rules is fairly easy.

      I'd pull together a second force like Soviets, British or Americans and have them on hand. Get someone to try the game, that is what I had to do to get people to try. I pimped it in my area, started to look on forums, boards, etc...then even ran some demos at gatherings to draw attention.
