This week sees the return to action of an old favourite – the Wasp flamethrowing carrier! With completely remastered running gear and the removal of the od integral base, the new Wasp model looks as great as it is deadly in the games of Bolt Action!
Based on the ubiquitous universal, or Bren, carrier the Wasp was a modified version carrying a flamethrower. Dreaded by Jerry!
Wasps were used by the Armoured and Infantry divisions with up to 6 in the independent machine gun companies, though they would usually operate in pairs.
The rules for the Wasp Flamethrower carrier can be found in the additional units PDF here with the rest of the rules for the British in the Armies of Great Britain book.
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!

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.”
