Warlord Games Gurkas
Gurkas, like these models from Warlord Games, served in the Second World War recruited from the sovereign state of Nepal. These tough allies to the British royal crown can really pack a punch.
They fought in Syria, North Africa, Italy, Greece, as well as in Burma against the Japanese.
Each Gurka carries a traditional Nepalese knife known as a Khukuri or Kukri.
This heavy, curved blade is a fearsome close-combat weapon, as well as being useful for more mundane tasks such as clearing a path through dense jungle terrain.
Metal box set contains a 10 man rifle section, 3 man command group and 8 man charging section.
These guys are the completed charging section with NCO.
Have a Great Battle!
