Great War
The Great War of 1914-18 was global in its reach. Yet this global conflict would be decided by the mighty clashes upon the battlefields of Europe.

Great War
HQ & Rifle Platoon (GBR702) Jerry has thrown everything at us – machine gun bullets at the Somme, shells at Verdun, and their vile poison gas at Ypres – but ‘Tommy’ has held firm. The traditional qualities of British infantry-courage, discipline and marksmanship-have stood them in good stead along with their trusty ‘303’ Enfield rifle.

Now, with Lewis light machine-guns, bombers, rifle grenades, and hard won experience, we are pushing the enemy back along the front. Our new recruits make up in dash what they may lack in experience. When the whistle blows, they will be ready to charge through the mud to the green fields beyond.

Note: The HQ & Rifle Platoon blister pack contains two command teams. This is deliberate so you can create the compulsory units required to field a Rifle Company in Great War by purchasing just two Rifle Platoon blister packs. From the two blister packs you will be able to create a Rifle Company HQ with a Company Command Pistol team, a 2iC Command Pistal team in addition to two full strength Rifle Platoons each with a HQ section (using the other two Command Pistol teams) and two Rifle Sections.
