Use the New Bolt Action British Commonwealth plastic infantry, based on the
8th army plastic with heads to represent Australian, South African, New
Zealander and LRDG/SAS troops, to stop the Axis forces in their tracks and
defeat the Desert Fox himself, Erwin Rommel.
Fighting for the freedom of the civilised world against the twin fascist
threats of Mussolini’s Italy and Hitler’s Germany, the brave men of the
British Commonwealth were a multi-national force from Great Britain, Australia,
South Africa, New Zealand, India, Canada and other far-flung corners of
The British Commonwealth infantryman was a fearsome opponent whether facing
the German Afrika Korps or the Italian Army, whether it be in the parched desert
of North Africa or in beautiful yet rugged terrain Italy. This box of highly
detailed plastic miniatures allows you to build slouch-hatted Australians, South
Africans wearing sun helmets or the men of the Long Range Desert Group, Special
Air Service and Special Boat Service.
The special forces of the LRDG, SAS and SBS were an eclectic mix of largely
non-conformist characters as befits the vital roles they played in the war. As
such their attire was a mix of that of their parent unit, national pride or
personal preference! This set is ideal to mix with our plastic 8th Army set with
the tin helmets, Scottish Tam-o’shanters and Indian headgear creating a truly
unique army on the tabletop!
