Once again I’ve painted up more men than you can take in a typical force, but I’ve painted most of the options you can get for the Brits:
– 1 x Corporal
– 1 x Sergeant
– 1 x 2″ mortar
– 1 x Bren light machine gunner (with assistant)
– 1 x sniper
– 10 x Commandos with Enfields
A British Commando squad starts out at 365pts. You can easily upgrade them to 500pts, like my Panzergrenadiers, but you will probably always have less men. What the Brits excel at though is the “Trained with the Bayonet” skill, which allows them to reroll 1d6 when assaulting and allows them to keep their hidden status while assaulting. Cool.
The Universal Carriers are not included in the squad, although I may use them in my game tomorrow as scenery or give them very rudimentary rules.
