Frontline Report: Kalon’s Atlantic Wall Defenders

Frontline Report: Kalon's Atlantic Wall Defenders

The Atlantic Wall was a marvel of modern military engineering, stretching from the Norwegian fjords to the beaches of Normandy and Gascony. Fortified bunkers and trench-lines overlooked beaches strewn with barbed wire, mines and anti-tank obstacles. Gargantuan coastal defence batteries and innumerable conventional artillery positions provided covering fire to the thousands of Wehrmacht soldiers defending their trenches and foxholes.

Dedicated Warlord fan Kalon has produced an army list and painting guide for his own defenders of the Atlantic Wall.

Kalon’s Army List

Kalon has used the Resistance Nest Reinforced Platoon from the Armies of Germany book to create this force.

As you would expect, it’s a very static list, centred around a core of crew-served mortars and machine guns, with a Pak 40 to pick off enemy armoured vehicles.
