With our new plastic German Grenadiers boxed set now shipping out to customers and appearing on tabletop battlefields across the world, we thought you’d appreciate aneven better value way to get your hands on them – so this week, we’re launching the German Grenadier Starter Army!
This box set provides you with everything you need to start a Grenadier-themed German army (be it Heer or Waffen-SS), or it would make a sizeable addition to an existing force.
We’ve based the box content around a recommended 1,250pt army list – there was just too much stuff for our usual 1,000 points!
And of course you don’t have to stick to our army list – you can equip the miniatures however you like – the German Grenadier sprues are hugely flexible, with heaps of potential options – including the likes of STG44 assault rifles, PPSh SMGs, Kar 98K rifles, MG42 light machine guns, rifle grenade attachments, MP40 sub-machine guns, Kar 98K rifles, Gewehr 43 rifles, stick grenades, and Panzerfausts.
We’ve included added metal MG42 medium machine gun team, 81mm medium mortar team, and a PaK 40 75mm anti-tank gun to provide some additional firepower – and two of our plastic Bolt Action vehicles – the fearsome Sd.Kfz 234/2 Puma armoured car, and the StuG (which can be assembled as either Stug III ausf G or the StuH 42 Assault Gun).
