Infantry weapons teams are a key component of any Bolt Action army, providing as they do great tactical flexibility for your force. Sniper teams, light mortar teams and flamethrower teams are among the most prevalent, presenting your opponent with multiple challenges to overcome.

Australian snipers were not given much in the way of special equipment – or even scopes in some circumstances. Despite this, there were many successful sharpshooters amongst the infantry companies, many of them professional hunters in civilian life.

In early campaigns, platoons back from the desert retained their 2-inch mortar, but it was discovered they were less effective in this new environment as the thick jungle canopy meant the rounds often burst in the air.

The re-equipped Jungle Divisions were issued with limited numbers of US-made man-packed flamethrowers from 1944 onwards. These proved devastatingly effective at clearing out Japanese bunkers.

Contains three Bolt Action Order Dice and the following Warlord Resin PlusTM figures:

  • 2-man Light Mortar team
  • 2-man Sniper team
  • 2-man Flamethrower team

A Sniper Team in a Partisan Bolt Action army represents anything from an untrained civilian out for revenge on the occupiers to a seasoned hunter that has decided to join the resistance.

Like most weapons used by the partisans, light mortars were often captured examples and short of ammunition. Light mortars were also relatively easy to supply by airdrops. For most partisans, mortars were too precious a resource to waste, and they were usually saved for just the right moment to surprise the enemy and pin them down as fighters advanced towards their targets.

Partisans had little in the way of anti-tank weaponry. Fortunately, most of the heavier armour of the occupying forces was at the front line, and thus it was mostly outdated and lightly armed vehicles were used for security duty in occupied territory. PIAT anti-tank launchers were amongst some of the heavier gear that could be airdropped or smuggled through enemy lines for use by partisan forces.

Contains three Bolt Action Order Dice and the following Warlord Resin PlusTM figures:

  • 2-man Light Mortar team
  • 2-man Sniper team
  • 2-man PIAT team

The Panzerschreck was a German development of the American bazooka, first encountered in North Africa, firing a large calibre shaped-charge rocket projectile. The back-blast from the weapon was so intense that early teams wore protective capes and masks – later a blast shield was fitted to the weapon giving it a distinctive appearance. The Panzerschreck and disposable anti-tank Panzerfaust had replaced the Panzerbüchse 39 anti-tank rifle by 1944.

During the battle of Stalingrad, Russian snipers took such a heavy toll upon the beleaguered Wehrmacht that the Germans began to train and equip their own marksmen to undertake a specialist role as snipers. A variety of rifles were used for sniping, including the standard KAR-98K and the semi-automatic Gewehr 43, all fitted with the high quality ZF39 telescopic sight, and equipped with precision-manufactured ammunition.

Flamethrowers – Flammenwerfer – were used through the war and were often employed against buildings or fortifications. During the latter part of the war, the Germans produced a lighter, smaller design that carried enough fuel for a single burst – effectively a one-shot flamethrower –the Eintossflammenwerfe. It is not known, however, whether this weapon was actually ever employed.
