Few divisions in the British Army have earned such a valorous reputation so quickly as the Parachute Division. Known as the Red Devils by the Germans for their trademark maroon beret and dogged fighting ability, the British airborne grew into a force to be reckoned with, whether delivered by Dakota aircraft, Horsa glider or as front line shock troops.
This box set contains:
Enough plastic components to make 30 British or Polish Airborne miniatures. Includes a host of options to allow for different weapon configurations and command models.
Plenty of equipment including: Lee Enfield rifle, Mk V Sten Gun, Bren gun LMG, scoped Lee Enfield rifle, PIAT, Webley pistol, Mills Bomb hand grenades.
Round plastic bases (25mm diameter).
Full-color waterslide decal sheet
This set also allows for Polish airborne troops to be built – their larger grey berets being a distinctive difference to their British counterparts.
Although comparatively lightly-armed, British Paras could dish it out and would not hesitate at hand-to-hand fighting if need be.
Warlord Games’ British Airborne are ideal for fighting in North West Europe where they could be used to re-fight actions such as the assault on the Merville battery, the coup de main attack on Pegasus Bridge, the heroic battles of Operation Market garden or onward to the crossing of the Rhine and Operation Varsity.
This product is supplied unassembled and unpainted. Glue and paints not included.
Recreate World War II combat on a tabletop using dice, model troops, tanks and the rules constructed by Bolt Action against one or more opponents.
Each opposing side will also require painted model troops, representing the soldiers, guns and tanks of your chosen armies.
Tabletop encounters take place according to twelve closely defined battle scenarios that explain how forces are deployed and how victory is achieved.
All that remains is for players to pit their wits against each other as they enact just one small part of one of the greatest conflicts in history—World War II.
Build, paint and play! The construction and painting of the models and watching them come to life are just as much fun as the game itself!
