More support comes your way for the French in Bolt Action as Warlord Games put together the Senegalese Tiralleurs, a deadly unit out of Africa that were feared by the Germans for their ferocity…

Senegalese Tiralleurs (Box)

Senegalese TiralleursThese soldiers were raised from colonies across Africa but took the title of Senegalese as a mark of honour named after the first regiment raised in Senegal. These soldiers were deadly in their defence in France and were both feared and despised by the Germans for their expert use of their melee weapons, the Coupe-Coupe.

In the set you get regular infantry as well as an NCO with rifle, a soldier with a VB launcher and a two man machine gun team for mowing down your foes.

Not a bad set of infantry for mixing it up in World War II!
