Forged In Battle Roll Out New Platoons For The 8th Army & Afrika Corp

March 24, 2016 by brennon

Forged In Battle have added some more platoons to both their 8th Army and Afrika Corp sections of their website. This means more platoons in 15mm for you to snap up and drop into your desert warfare games. Check them out…

8th Army

We’ll start with the British and their 8th Army additions. Leading the way is a group of Infantry as a Rifle Platoon with an NCO, LMG as well as chaps with regular rifles.

Following on from them we have both a HMG and Mortar Platoon which give you that little bit more firepower on the tabletop and a way to not only pin enemies down but also blast them out of cover.

Each of these sets are looking great too and will be nice as much needed support alongside the regular infantry. The team at Forged In Battle already do a whole bunch of miniatures to fit this world and theatre of war so keep an eye out for more.

Afrika Korp

Not to be outdone we have the Germans with a similar array of releases starting with the same Rifle Platoon featuring a LMG and NCO…

Matching the British at every step we also have the HMG and Mortar Platoons with their own spin on things. The attention to detail in these miniatures seems spot on and there’s plenty to work with here as a painter without them turning into blobs of green and tan on the tabletop.

What do you think of what we’re seeing here? I think it’s another good avenue into picking up some 15mm models for your tabletop games set during World War II.
