We are both avid enthusiasts of the desert campaigns and have enjoyed the recent release of Duel in the Sun, from Warlord Games. In this campaign book the Free French are covered, but only for the very early 1940 raids of Leclerc's column on Italian border forts such as Kufra.
What was missing from this book is the later formation, the 1st Free French Brigade, and it's epic struggle during the siege of Bir Hakeim. So we have put our efforts together to provide a list to cover the Free French as equipped by the British in North Africa.
You can read an epic firsthand account of the siege here: http://www.1dfl.fr/en-route-avec-la-dfl/bir-hakeim-in-english/
Inside this PDF you will find some units may be familiar with, such as the Foreign Legion, but they will have more equipment options. There are also many new units and especially vehicles that the Free French improvised with a mix of French and British equipment. Truly unique stuff.
This PDF is a free download, and offers a basic history of the unit and the siege, an army list with selector and some historical and miniature photographs for inspiration.
You will however require a copy of both Armies of France and the Allies, as well as Armies of Great Britain to get the rules for some of the units that are the same as these books.
This list is perfect to accompany the recent release by Perry Miniatures of their WW2 French range. Especially vehicles like the Dodge Tanke armoured truck, which until now had no rules in Bolt Action.
The PDF is available here. As always, head over to the forum and leave some feedback, and better yet, if you are yourself collecting a Free French platoon, post up some pics of it!
