Preview: Plastic Bolt Action British Infantry!

Our first plastic set in the Bolt Action WWII range, the German Infantry, have gone down an absolute storm with you all. Now we have something a bit special for those who are wanting to build their own allied force of British or Canadians! This set has a huge number of options – we’ll be showing off more of the 3-up builds in coming weeks as we prepare for the big release.

The first thing to note is the helmets are separate to the heads. As we all know the British Tommy wasn’t one for standing on ceremony and wore his battle bowler in all manner of angles – the more slovenly the better! Included in the set are the iconic Mk I tin hat and the later Mk III ‘turtle’ helmet – and there are netted, scrim-covered and plain versions. It also means a vast variety of combinations can be made in your army before you even consider arm and weapon options…

As you’d expect the British weapon sprue contains all the equipment you’d expect to see – Bren guns, Sten guns, SMLEs, Webley pistols, etc. The NCO below is clipping a new magazine into his Sten ready to hose Jerry down with hot lead…

The set is also wide-ranging in the theatres it is good for. Not only post D-Day Europe but it’s great for playing out games in the Italian campaign too.

We’ll be showing more photos of our 3-ups in coming weeks, culminating in what we expect to be a November release.
