8th Army "Desert Rats" Motor Company (BRAB01)
British Motor Company Army Box for Mid War
The riflemen of the 8th Army are hardy desert veterans skilled in navigating vast featureless expanses in the North African Desert, finding their foe, and defeating them.
|They are well supported by the new Sherman heavy tanks and the fast Crusader light tanks, making them a very powerful strike force!|
When they are not raiding the enemy in well-armed ‘Jock Columns’, the Motor Companies dig in, forming all-round defensive positions on which enemy attacks falter and break.
This boxed set contains all the models shown in the organisational diagrams below.
Also included is a sheet of decals containing divisional symbols and tank numbers. Vehicles and guns have individual assembly diagrams. As an additional bonus, two unique army-specific objective markers are also included.
The composition of the force has remained the same as when it was first released.
|The Flames Of WarQuartermasters Set and the paint set for North Africa contain all the paints needed to complete your British Desert Rats army are available separately.|
Afrika, The Intelligence Handbook for forces in Afrika and the Mediterranean, has detailed company options, historical details, and painting guides.
