New: 1500 point Pacific Armies

Celebrating the release of the latest Bolt Action book Empires in Flames the Pacific and Far East we are introducing two new fantastic 1500pt armies – perfect to expand your Island hopping counter offensive in the Pacific!

The first army is designed around a Japanese reinforced Special Naval Landing Force, some of the best of all Japan’s fighting men. Deployed in amphibious landings, their well planned and fanatical attacks won them many victories.

Army List: Japanese Island Assault Force 1500 points

As Battle raged across the island chains of the Pacific, the Japanese would attempt to take more ground with combined strikes from the air and Sea, one such battle was for Menado in 1942. As the Yokosuka 1st SNLF Paratroopers made their jumps, the Special Naval Landing Force would be right behind them on the beaches – forming a deadly two-pronged attack.
