Perry Miniatures are returning to World War II with more American GI's. Two different packs offer up some variety for your US Army in hotter weather ideal for North Africa, Italy or even the summer months of Europe. First up are standard riflemen

Rounding out the squad is a mixed infantry pack containing the more specialised weapons available to US platoons, a pair of Thompson submachine guns, a Springfield rifle and of course the quintessential BAR.

Once again Michael has done fantastic work on the sculpts and I'm always a fan of more variety in units and these will happily join the ranks in theatres from Europe to the Pacific.

Teasing Armour

The US Army is not alone in being reinforced though three new vehicles, sculpted by John Hart with Perry's crew, have also been showcased.

First up is the M3A1 White Scout Car.

This is a fantastically versatile vehicle that saw service throughout the second world war with all the allies thanks to lend-lease, General Patton had a modified version that he used as a command car, and after 1945 it saw service in China and Vietnam and during the Arab-Israeli war.

Bringing a touch of class is the Roll-Royce Armoured Car.

WW 53 Rolls Royace AC MkII - Perry Miniatures

This armoured car was developed for the first world war and saw service in Ireland during the civil war and into the second world war. The model comes with the original Vickers mounted turret and the updated open-topped turret that equipped a Boys anti-tank rifle and Bren gun after 1940. Lawrence of Arabia called his nine armoured cars "more valuable than rubies".

Lastly, the axis north African forces pull together with the Breda artillery tractor

This prime mover saw service throughout Italy, Sicily and North Africa and is an ideal way of towing your larger artillery and anti-tank into position.

Now that summer is at an end will you be moving your war to warmer climes?
