Providing armoured support to your brave Tommies, this new resin and metal A9 Cruiser tank Mk I can be used to support the forces of the British Expeditionary Force in France, during the conflict in Greece and with the 8th Army in the Western Desert. Armed with a QF 2-pdr main gun and co-axial Vickers machine gun in the main turret, the A9 was peculiar in that it also has Vickers machine guns mounted to independent turrets, adding welcome firepower to the King’s forces.
The A9 Cruiser, Mk I was an effective tank in the North African campaigns, it’s 2 pdr gun was lethal against the early Italian tanks it encountered during the North African campaign and could also hold its own against Rommel’s early Panzer IIs and IIIs. It was a fast tank designed to bypass the main enemy lines and engage the lines of communication, as well as with enemy tanks and is available now in our webstore!
From early campaigns in Europe to the deserts of North Africa and the jungles of the Far East, the Armies of Great Britain covers wherever the British forces faced the Axis threat, including rules for the A9 Cruiser Tank.
Armies of Great Britain allows you to field the British Army, British Airborne, Commandos, Commonwealth troops such as Australians, New Zealanders, Canadians, Polish Airborne, Gurkhas, Chindits and of course the SAS!

Written by Jake Thornton, a copy of the Bolt Action rulebook is needed to use this supplement.
This book comes from Warlord with the special release miniature of New Zealander Captain Charles Upham, VC & Bar – exquisitely sculpted by Paul Hicks. This model is only available when you buy Armies of Great Britain directly from Warlord Games.
For all his remarkable exploits on the battlefield, New Zealander Upham was a shy and modest man, embarrassed when asked about the actions he had been decorated for. “The military honours bestowed on me,” he said, “are the property of the men of my unit.”
