Operation Werewolf is a Melbourne Based, 3 game, 1200 point Konflikt ‘47 tournament/event brought to you by the same warped minds that delivered many of Melbourne’s past successful Bolt Action events and the LRDG Podcast.
Operation Werewolf will be held at The Games Laboratory in Melbourne’s CBD on Saturday, November 12th. The event starts promptly at 10AM. Please note the venue opens around that time for those looking to get there early.
The event will be run by Brad “Old Man Morin” with the support from the LRDG Podcast crew and the awesome staff at The Games Laboratory.

Although we are not restricting any unit types or weapons, we do ask that you consider the fun of your opponent when creating a force for this event. Operation Werewolf is a celebration of the release of this new set of rules and new unit types to the Bolt Action family. It is definitely not a “win-at-all-costs” event. Submitted army lists that the TO and composition panel deem to be possibly at odds with this philosophy will be met with resubmission requests.
Armies for this event should be no larger than 1200 points.
Forces must be made up using the generic reinforced platoon described on page 126 of the Konflikt ’47 rulebook. Theatre Selectors will not be used at this event.
Lists may be chosen from any of the four army lists included in the Konflikt ’47 rulebook or from any of the “Armies of…” Bolt Action series. That said, please keep in mind that forces should have a late war feel to reflect the K’47 universe. Please contact the TO if this is a problem or if you have questions about this of any kind.
Operation Werewolf will not be allowing the use of armoured platoons.
Armies may combine units from the “Armies of” series, Bolt Action Theatre Books, and the Konflikt ’47 rulebook but units must be taken from matching nations. For example, all units in a German army must be from German lists.
Also please note that if you are playing a Bolt Action army not represented in the Konflikt ’47 rulebook (the Japanese army for example), you may choose one selection from a friendly army list in the Konflikt ’47 book. For example, a Japanese army could include a unit of Totenkorps from the German army list. If you are not sure about who is allied with who in this universe, please contact the TO. The list is too long to publish here.
Bolt Action armies may be taken at this event as normal.
Players may add Warplanes to their forces instead of air observers.
Please note: THIS EVENT WILL BE USING THE BOLTACTION.NET FORMAT RULES (Season 3). For more details please look here.
Operation Werewolf is a three game Swiss style event. Each round will last 2 hours and ten minutes. In Round 1 players will be chosen at random. You may request to “grudge” a particular opponent in round 1 if you wish.
We will be using 3 Boltaction.net missions. Please check the Bolaction.net mission pack for more information. You can find it HERE.
Game 1: Nuts
Game 2: Breakout
Game 3: Heartbreak Ridge
