New: Panzerschreck team

Dear Wargaming Community

here is our Panzerschreck team, the second part of our anti tank troops. After capturing and evaluating American lend-lease Bazookas at the eastern front, the Raketenpanzerb├╝chse 54 (roughly translating as rocket armor rifle) was developed - in short and for the German love for abbreviations: The RPzB 54 (shout that in the midst of combat!). Colloquially known as Panzerschreck (tank dread) or Ofenrohr (stove pipe), the weapon was deployed on all fronts during the last years of the war. There it was potentially able to defeat all types of enemy armor.

In our set the gunner is kneeling with the RPzB 54 ready to fire. The assistant gunner has loaded the weapon and is just connecting the wiring of the electrical ignition - thus arming the launcher.

The set of two figures will be availabe for 6,90 € in a few weeks and, as always, from our webshop.

New: Sturmgewehr soldiers

Dear Wargamers,

this time we are happy to present to you our troopers with Sturmgewehr 44 assault rifles. These will give you the option to replace men with Karabiner 98k in your squads. The weapon was planned as "MP 43" (for Maschinenpistole or machine pistol) but was renamed "Sturmgewehr" (assault rifle) for propaganda purposes. The Sturmgewehr was perceived as versatile and effective in combat. Yet, late war production problems did not allow to equip the German infantry formations completely.

The three figures bear a Sturmgewehr each. While the first shooter is firing from a firm standing position, the second man is reloading. He has already stuffed the empty magazine in his webbing as he opens a pocket to grab a new one. The third trooper is sprinting to reach cover. To not hinder movement he holds the weapon in one hand as German regulations dictated.

The three figures will be available for 7,90 € on our web shop in a few weeks.

Best regards and until next week,

Thomas & Moritz
