Our new Waffen-SS range has really captured your imagination and many of you love the new Figure Head system (separate heads allowing you to customise your army). There is plenty more to come for the Third Reich’s fanatical elite – starting with these great new Tank Hunters!
As you can see our Waffen-SS Tank Hunters are prepared to take down any Allied armour which might come their way. Armed with both a Panzerfaust (“tank fist”) and Panzershreck (“tank terror”), these hard-bitten veteran troops can use their mobility, stealth, and high explosives to out maneouvre and destroy both obstacles and vehicles which make their way into their sights.
As you’d expect from us here at Warlord there’s also a surprise in this range – a variant with a panzerfaust in the middle of the firing sequence. You can rest assured that your opponent will be wincing before the dice are rolled when you swap out your advancing model for this one.
The Raketenpanzerbüchse or Panzerschreck came about to fill the range gap presented when using a Panzerfaust and to act as a better multi-purpose armor shredding tool. Though it produced a ton of smoke upon firing, giving away the user’s carefully chosen position, the pay off was lethal. The 88mm round could penetrate a whopping 200mm of armour.
The cheap, recoilless Panzerfaust followed in the footsteps of the smaller Faustpatrone. Eventually this disposable anti-tank weapon would go from a rather sketchy range of 30m to a more practical 60m and at most about 100m. When it came to the urban battlefields of Eastern Germany towards the end of the war, Panzerfausts and Panzeschreks were the anti-tank weapon of choice.
And that’s certainly not all we have for you to choose from when it come to nasty German toys to break up enemy armour! Don’t forget to fill out your Wehrmacht ranks with the recently released German Panzerschreck Team!
