By jove but you’ve loved our plastic Bolt Action British! We’ve been bowled over by the rave reviews they’ve recieved and you’ve also lapped up our metal support packs too. We’re not likely to forego the chance to make the most of a good thing so here are more Tommies to do battle against the dastardly Hun!
Bolt Action British Infantry Plastic Boxed Set
Britain and her Commonwealth put huge numbers of men into uniform in WW2 to stem the aggression from Germany, Italy and Japan. Her small professional army was swallowed up defending a worldwide Empire and soon her forces were shattered and in full retreat, culminating in crushing reverses at Dunkirk and in Singapore.
However, Britain stoically declined to surrender and, with her loyal Empire at her side, fought back. Re-equipped and refreshed they took the war to the Axis powers.The ‘Tommies’, as they were known, learned new techniques on the field of battle and by war’s end were highly trained and well-equipped.
Warlord’s British infantry are tooled up for the job in hand. They are multi-part and can be assembled in a wide variety of ways, with a huge array of exotic looking weaponry. Fix bayonets!
Order yours today! Inside every box you’ll find:
Enough plastic components to make 25 British infantry miniatures. Includes a host of options to allow for different weapon configurations plus command models.
Weapons included: Lee Enfield rifle No. 4 (plus scoped and bayoneted versions), Bren light machine gun, Thompson sub-machine gun, 2″ mortar, Sten gun sub-machine guns,
Webley revolver, Mills bomb grenades, bandoliers and the Tommies’ trusty shovel!
Round plastic bases (25mm diameter) construction leaflet included.
Waterslide decals for shoulder flashes, NCO stripes, and armbands for Medics and MPs.
NEW! Combat Engineers and 3″ Mortar
A British 3″ Mortar consists of three dedicated crew. The 3″ mortar gives some serious infantry support in the form of rather large explosions lobbed into the midst of enemy positions. Grab this lovely pack and lend the boys a hand by helping keeping Jerry’s head down before the assault!
This pack contains one mine detector figure, one figure with wire cutters, one figure with demolition trigger box and one figure with flamethrower!
Often forgotten in many games, the engineers are vital. Every infantry battalion would have an engineer platoon in the support company, as well as Royal Engineer units attached as necessary.
If Jerry’s dug in tight then it’s a job for the engineers. Equipped with wire cutters and demo charges to clear the obstacles and the MkIII “Polish” mine detector the lads are just what you need to get to grips with Jerry! And if they’ve got pill boxes then there’s the “Ack Pack” flamethrower to winkle them out!
Support Packs: Metal Command and Vickers
This command pack will be just the thing to help your plastic Tommies tackle the fascist threat. There’s a concerned officer pointing at a map with his trusty pipe, a radio operator relaying vital enemy positions, a young subaltern directing his troops, and a somber medic ready to patch up your boys and get them home to dear old Blighty in one piece. Grab a pack here!
Another metal support pack is this freshly sculpted British Vickers HMG team! Get yours here!
