August 9, 2017 by thisisazrael

Warlord Games have released a new Pacific unit for Bolt Action, the Papuan Infantry Battalion.

Papuan Infantry Battalion Front

The Papuan Infantry specialist in scouting, setting up traps and engaging in stealth reconnaissance.

Historically these were local men led by Australian Officers and recruited in New Guinea.

Papuan Infantry Battalion Back

Being local men they utilised their knowledge of terrain and jungles, becoming almost impossible to ambush as they fought through the Kokoda campaign and up to the end of the war against Imperial Japan.

The set comes with ten metal minis consisting of one NCO with SMG and nine Papuan men with rifles.

Will you be adding some of the Papuan to your table?
