Warlord Games has shown off some upcoming model sets for use with Bolt Action. They are looking back to the Pacific theatre this time around as they reveal the Australian Independence Command Squad and some rather daring Japanese soldiers too…
These Commandos were sent on some daring missions to perform raids, demolition, sabotage, subversion, and organisation of civil resistance against the Japanese.
You would have found them fighting across the entire of the South Pacific and deep behind enemy lines. The squad are armed with a series of Submachine Guns, Bren Guns and Rifles.
Matched against them might have been these Japanese Bamboo Spear Fighters who are soldiers that have been left with no other option than to grab the sharpest piece of bamboo they can to charge their enemies.
These soldiers would have been hungry, desperate, and yet totally loyal to the Emperor and determined to fight on regardless of having access to little weaponry or support from their fellows.
As you might imagine their attacks almost always ended in a slaughter but they stunned the Allied soldiers who saw their bravery. Some of them would have grenades strapped to their bodies so when they fell they might be able to take some of their foes with them – a terrible fate.
What do you think?
