When I started playing Bolt Action I went with a very specialised list, late war Normandy Commandos, now part of their list is that they can take Paras, and the Red Devils have had some re-enforcement so I am left wondering whether to get some new blood in my force.
The British Airborne keep their wheels turning with the new British Airborne Jeep & Trailer
In addition to normal Jeeps, the airborne forces at Arnhem were supplied with special Recce Jeeps, fitted with single or twin Vickers machine guns that’s an awful lot of pain to be throwing out from a very cheap unit.
BRITISH AIRBORNE RECCE JEEP IN ACTION
Using speed as it’s main offensive and defensive tool, this recce Jeep is able to become a threat to any undefended target. Use the jeep to hunt down auxiliary and support units such as FOO teams, Lieutenants and immobile weapon teams.
|Cost:||28pts (inexperienced), 35pts (Regular), 42pts (Veteran).|
|Weapons:||1 forward facing Vickers MMG.|
|Damage value:||6+ (Soft Skin).|
|Options:||May upgrade to twin forward-facing MMGs for +10pts|
Now to be totally honest I don’t think these will fit in with my fluffy green beret list so I will probably hold off for the time being unless I find my self in desperate need of another vehicle, but the studio model looks great and its almost worth getting them and some plastic paras to start a second army, but at the moment Mark is preparing for his first tournament in Bolt Action so I am concentrating on getting my Commandos ready to give hime a bit of practice against mass british fire power, although I have succumbed to the 2 new British Sniper models as they look awesome. Now I am not sure which one will take to the field first but they cant do any worse than the last sniper I employed!
