Lock ‘n Load Publishing to Distribute A las Barricadas!

Beautiful Spanish design to be available through Lock ‘n Load Publishing Store.

Henry, VA, November 27, 2006 – Lock ‘n Load Publishing, the sole publisher of Lock ‘n Load board games, announced today that they will distribute A las Barricadas! in the United States. A platoon level design covering the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), A las Barricadas! features the stunning art of Lock ‘n Load artist Nicolas Eskubi (Best Wargame Graphics CRS Award 2005 winner) and design talent of Juan Carlos Cebrián (designer of the SCW module for Critical Hit). The game includes: Four 29×40 cm geomorphic maps, 322 counters (5/8”, ¾”, and 7/8”), two dice; a printed 44-page manual in three languages (Spanish, English and French), and 15 scenarios. A las Barricadas! Will be available for order in the first week of December. For more information see and .


“This is one of the most beautiful games I have ever seen,” says Mark H. Walker, founder of Lock ‘n Load Publishing. “I’m glad I can offer it to American gamers.”

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.
