Lock ‘n Load Publishing Offers “You want it? You got it,” sale.

Henry, VA, December 7, 2006 – Lock ‘n Load Publishing, the sole publisher of Lock ‘n Load board games, announced today the “You want it? You got it,” sale. For each copy of Band of Heroes purchased between today 12/7/06 and a date to be determined (until we get tired of making them), we’ll include a complete set of the Soviet and Bundeswehr counters featured in the last two (and upcoming third) newsletter scenarios. The newsletters may be downloaded at here and here.

The counters are front and back mounted on illustration board (slightly thicker than BoH standard counters). Players need only cut them out with a paper cutter or pair of scissors. The counter sheet includes: 5 Bundeswehr Squads, 4 Bundeswehr Half-squads, 2 Bundeswehr Leaders, 1 Bundeswehr Hero. These are the same figures as the BoH SS, but rebadged to indicate their new status. Also included are 9 Soviet regular infantry Squads, 5 Soviet regular infantry Half-squads, 2 Soviet Leaders, 2 DP-28 machine guns, 2 14.5mm PTRS anti-tank rifles, 2 T-70 tanks, 2 T-34 tanks, 1 M4A4 Lend Lease Sherman (all with turret counters to match), and a German StuIG 33B. That’s not all. Gamers will also get the following Soviet Guards units: 8 Soviet Guards Squads, 5 Soviet Guards Half-squads, 3 DP-28 machine guns, 3 Satchel Charges, 1 Guards Leader, and 6 parachute markers to use with the new parachute rules. That’s 69 counters for free, drawn with the same breathtaking style and precision you expect in your Lock ‘n Load games. Just order Band of Heroes and we’ll stuff/carefully place them in your package.


For a limited time, Lock ‘n Load Publishing will also sell the counters as a standalone order. The cost is 7.49 plus shipping ($4.49 U.S. or $9.99 foreign) for the sheet. Our web-gnomes are busily working to include the counter sheet on the super secure order page. Give us a day or two. If, however, you just can’t wait, email us at and we’ll send you a PayPal invoice or take your order over the phone.

Since opening their doors in September of 2006, sales for Lock ‘n Load Publishing’s discounted Band of Heroes (49.99 for a limited time), and pre-orders for the company’s P-500 games have been stunning. The first three Lock ‘n Load Publishing titles —Lock ‘n Load: The Swift and Bold, which features the British Paratroopers in Europe (circa 1944), Lock ‘n Load: A Day of Heroes, a simulation of the Ranger and Delta Team battle in Mogadishu in October of 1993, and World at War, an entirely new, platoon level Mark H. Walker design, which depicts the Third World War in August of 1985, are scheduled to go into production in winter of 2006.

The first computer game based on Mark H. Walker’s Lock ‘n Load franchise, Lock ‘n Load: Heroes of Stalingrad, will release in Q2 of 2007.
