British at Far East: Rifles Assault Section with MkIII Turtle Helmets (Makes 9 figures) 

The set contains 9 model soldiers comprising of 1 section leader, 1 light machine gunner and 7 infantrymen. The weapons are the Thompson sub-machine gun, the Sten gun, the Bren light machine gun and SMLE rifles with the spike bayonet. As always, the weapons, heads and arms are interchangeable to enable the assembly of at least 20 different postures. All parts are interchangeable with models within the same range.

By the later part of WW2, the machine gun is more widely issued to combat troops instead of just to the senior NCOs. Long range musketry exchanges that started with the Second Boer War and through WW1 has been being replaced with infantry fire and movement shock combat tactics, integrated with tanks and bombers. Accordingly, the proportion of rifles issued is reduced.

*Some assembly required

*Note: matches up in scale with Toy Soldiers of San Diego and other larger 1/32 scale figures.

Released in October 2021.
