Conquer the desert with the British Desert Rats, 8th Army - 1000pt starter army set! Everything you need to start your Bolt Action army.

The 8th army (known as the Desert Rats) was a field army formation of the British Army, fighting mainly in the Italian and North African campaigns. This army was comprised of many different units coming from, but not limited to, Australia, Canada, Free French Forces, New Zealand and Poland! They also included the V Corps, X Corps, XIII Corps, XXX Corps, I Canadian Corps and the II Polish Corps.

Again, the hand of command regularly changed but one of the most notable commanders was no other than General Bernard Montgomery who was in command from 13 August 1942 to 29 December 1943.

This set contains:

  • 1 x 8th Army HQ Blister Pack
  • 1 x 8th Army Plastic Box Set
  • 1 x 8th Army MMG Team Blister Pack
  • 1 x Universal Carrier
  • 1 x Humber Armoured Car MKII
  • 2 x Valentine II infantry tank
  • 1 x Armies of Great Britain Book
  • 1 x Bolt Action Desert Rat Dice Bag
  • 1 x Order Dice pack - Brown

This force has a lot of bodies in it allowing a much larger control of the battlefield! You'll be able to maintain battlelines and keep your flanks safe by being able to spread out without the fear of overstretching. This is further reinforced by the large presence of armour which would be able to rapidly deploy in high-risk areas and pose a major threat to your enemy.
