Great Britain - Universal... Great Britain - Universal Carrier

Great Britain - Universal Carrier

Price €18.50

The Universal Carrier, or Bren carrier as it became popularly known, was just that a multi-purpose, tracked and armoured vehicle that filled a whole variety of roles with all British and Commonwealth troops in every theatre of World War II.

Well-loved by the men they supported, they were used to ferry troops up to the frontline, to evacuate wounded, bring up supplies and ammunition and to conduct liaison and patrols. With some 113,000 units built in the UK and abroad, it was the most produced armoured fighting vehicle in history.

Universal Carriers gave terrific service for British and Allied forces throughout the war and also saw good use in the Soviet army. No self-respecting British Commonwealth commander would eschew these trusty carriers to back up his stoic Tommies

Soviet Union - Soviet Infantry Soviet Union - Soviet Infantry

Soviet Union - Soviet Infantry

Price €47.00

These are the men who fought ferociously to defend Mother Russia from the German invasion of 1941 through to the fall of Berlin in 1945. Simple peasant soldiers, they were taught to obey orders and do as they were told. Their life was hard and their battles probably unequalled in history for scale and suffering.

The Russian divisions grew from a disorganised mass to a fully capable and experienced force of modern infantry in just a few short years, a deadly weapon tempered in the cauldron of battle against the German invaders.

"Quantity has a quality of its own" said Joseph Stalin, alluding to the huge numbers of men he could put into the field. Well-equipped with simple, solid weaponry the Soviet soldier was a terror in attack and the very devil in defence as the legendary sieges of Leningrad and Stalingrad hold in stark testimony.

This box gives you a platoon of grim Russian infantry with a variety of equipment and weaponry. Assemble your men, fix bayonets, look to your front and don't let the Commissar see you lag behindǃ

Soviet Union - Soviet... Soviet Union - Soviet Winter Infantry

Soviet Union - Soviet Winter Infantry

Price €45.00

When the German army crashed over the Russian border in 1941, Hitler was confident of a short, sharp campaign. He nearly got one, but heroic defence by the massive Soviet armies slowed the Nazi advance. It was done by the simple private soldier, "Ivan" as the Germans called him. Brave, solid, and loyal, these soldiers endured dreadful battle conditions. Their equipment was unsophisticated but functional, much like the troops themselves.

The bitter fighting in Finland had taught some hard lessons to the Red Army where thousands of their men fell victim to frostbite. The cold weather kit later issued was warm and comfortable, frequently padded or quilted, and was much envied by the German troops shivering in thin overcoats.

These tough men could lie out in the snow for hours before making their attacks. Urrah!

Soviet Union - T-34/85... Soviet Union - T-34/85 medium tank

Soviet Union - T-34/85 medium tank

Price €27.00

The T-34 series, with its sloping armour, changed the principles of tank design during the war. The sloping, angular layout of the T-34 increased the effective armour thickness and also saw a larger proportion of shells deflected away than penetrated its armour. The introduction of the T-34 into action saw German tank design follow suit with similarly angled armour on the likes of the Panther and King Tiger. As German tank design came to the fore, the Soviet war machine once again raised the bar with the T-34/85.

The T-34/85, the very symbol of Soviet military strength in the Second World War, had a new turret to house the more powerful 85mm ZiS gun. A supremely rugged and reliable tank, the T-34/85 had excellent off-road capability, especially in the marshland or snow of the Eastern Front, and was easy for the crew to operate and maintain.

The T-34/85's great strength lay in its adaptation of the T-34/76 tank design which preceded it. This ensured a far smoother and faster production line than would have been the case with a completely new design. Another major advantage of the relatively simple design is the sheer number of tanks the Soviet tank factories could produce - by the summer of 1944 the Soviet war machine could produce more T-34/85s in a month than the Germans had Panther tanks in the whole of the Eastern Front!

With over 21,000 of the 57,000 T-34s built during WWII being T-34/85s, the Russian credo was clearly one of quantity over quality, although it was an unwise Panzer commander who discounted the ability of the T-34/85.

The T-34/85 would be used by many nations post-war. 120 were used during the invasion of South Korea in 1950. They proved highly effective in the early days of this action until newer NATO tanks arrived in theatre

Soviet Union - KV1/2... Soviet Union - KV1/2 Plastic Box

Soviet Union - KV1/2 Plastic Box

Price €27.00

The KV-1 is a huge monster of a vehicle weighing at 45 tonnes it was one of Russia's first heavy breed of tanks used within the second world war, it was famed for it's near impregnability. The German anti-tank weaponry of the time had nearly no way of penetrating its armour, only the lack of training and manoeuvrability allowing it to fall foul of superior German tactics.

Their size allowed KV-1s to literally crush anything beneath its giant treads, firing lines and encampments were abandoned on the sheer sight of it. The 76.2mm cannon still punched through any of the current German armour, so during 1941, it was nigh-unstoppable.

The KV-1 set the example of how a heavy tank could or should be, nearly indestructible and to cause terror in their enemy. Over the following years it did fall out of favour, but it was used as the base for the next generation of heavy tanks.

The T-34/85 would be used by many nations post-war. 120 were used during the invasion of South Korea in 1950. They proved highly effective in the early days of this action until newer NATO tanks arrived in theatre

Germany - German Grenadiers Germany - German Grenadiers

Germany - German Grenadiers

Price €39.50

The German soldier was a formidable opponent in World War II. Tough, well-trained and politically indoctrinated they fought on all fronts achieving great feats of arms that only the best trained and motivated troops can accomplish. Daring in attack and stubborn in defence the average German Landser was a dangerous foe for the Allied armies to face.

Well led from the highest command right through to the infantry squad, the German soldier fought on against overwhelming odds right to the last days of the war, delivering punishing counterattacks when least expected.

These superbly sculpted plastic miniatures allow you to field squads of German landsers dressed in late war M44 tunics, camouflage zeltbahn poncho, etc. They can be equipped with a wide variety of some of the best weaponry available to any army of the war - from the deadly STG44 assault rifle to the tankbusting panzerfaust!

Germany - Waffen SS Germany - Waffen SS

Germany - Waffen SS

Price €39.50

Tough, lavishly equipped and politically indoctrinated, SS troops formed over 38 divisions and numerous other regimental and battalion-sized units, totalling nearly a million men under arms.

Their armoured units won many plaudits for their actions, and although relationships between regular army units and the Waffen-SS were sometimes strained, most SS units fought ferociously, against great odds until the wars end in Berlin, 1945.

The Waffen-SS was a controversial organisation - their zeal and discipline could not be questioned although their many documented atrocities will perhaps be their greatest legacy.

Germany - Panther Ausf A Germany - Panther Ausf A

Germany - Panther Ausf A

Price €27.00

The Panther was the best all-round German tank of the war and although conceived as a medium tank, at 45 tons and with frontal armour over 100mm thick, it could easily be rated more highly.

The Panther's thick, sloping front armour was copied from the Russian T-34 but the main gun was a weapon that far excelled anything the Russians possessed, the high velocity KwK 42 L70, which was capable of penetrating any Allied tank in service when it was first introduced.

This is the second version of the tank, built from mid 1943 onwards, it saw action on both Eastern and Western fronts. Bizarrely the marques did not follow alphabetical order. Changes on the original Panther include a redesigned hull machine gun and a commanders cupola.

Germany - Stug III Ausf D Germany - Stug III Ausf D

Germany - Stug III Ausf D

Price €27.00

Although overshadowed by the headline-hogging 'Big Cats' such as the Panther and Tiger, the Sturmgeschütz line of assault guns were quite possibly the biggest success story in terms of Germany's armoured vehicles. They served on all fronts where the Third Reich fought and collectively destroyed more tanks than their feline cousins, claiming to have knocked out over 20,000 tanks by 1944!

The Stug's low silhouette proved extremely advantageous, making it difficult to target and easy to disguise with camouflage.

Stug crews were actually part of the German Artillery rather than the Panzer divisions and their crews would be dressed in field grey uniforms in the main as a result.

Germany - Panzer IV Ausf.... Germany - Panzer IV Ausf. F1/G/H medium tank

Germany - Panzer IV Ausf. F1/G/H medium tank

Price €24.00

Whilst the propaganda headlines may well have gone to the big cats such as the Panther and the Tiger, the Panzer IV was the backbone of German armoured capability throughout the war.

The iconic German tank of the Second World War, the Panzer IV fought from the invasion of Poland to the fall of Berlin. The Panzer IV was constantly updated, with its sound design giving it a longevity well beyond that of its contemporaries. By mid-war it was packing a deadly long-barrelled 75mm gun, giving it great hitting power and better mobility and its armour had been doubled in places greatly increasing its survivability.

By the time of massive battles in Russia in middle of the war the Pz IV was also carrying the detachable screen side armour known as schürzen. This was in response to the threat posed by Russian anti-tank rifles and, latterly, by Allied hollow charge bazooka style weapons.

Germany - Tiger I Ausf. E... Germany - Tiger I Ausf. E Heavy Tank

Germany - Tiger I Ausf. E Heavy Tank

Price €27.00

Amongst the most feared tanks in the Second World War, the mere mention of the name 'Tiger' was enough to cause panic amongst Allied armoured formations.

The Tiger was hurried into action on the Russian front as a response to the heavier Soviet tanks that had caught the Wehrmacht unawares. Its massive square body and rounded turret was an intimidating sight to enemy tankers. The armour was tremendously thick and made of quality steel, making it largely invulnerable, at least frontally, to anti-tank fire.

Its potent 88mm gun was a deadly weapon, effective against enemy tanks up to three kilometres and also firing a lethal high explosive shell.

At 52 tons the Tiger was sluggish but its broad tracks ensured a reasonable cross country performance. Its crews were specially trained as it was an expensive machine to build and maintain. A well trained veteran crew of five men could take on several enemy tanks with a reasonable chance of defeating them all, with little danger to the crew or tank.

Tigers were normally formed into separate heavy tank battalions and parcelled out by the high command wherever they were most needed, their presence normally being enough to tip the balance in that sector.

Germany - Opel Blitz/Maultier Germany - Opel Blitz/Maultier

Germany - Opel Blitz/Maultier

Price €24.00

The Opel Blitz came as a Type S 2 wheel drive and a Type A or "Allrad" that had a 4 x 4 chassis, enabling it to cope with most conditions and provided a superb structure on which were built such conversions as a radio truck (a metal and wood superstructure on the rear that housed radio equipment), Kfz. 385 Tankwagon (a specialized fuel tanker conversion), plus a variety of local workshop produced anti aircraft weapon platforms - mounting everything from the standard Wehrmacht 20mm & 37mm AA to the more feared Quad 20mm Flakvierling 38 AA gun.

Perhaps a more famous adaptation was the Opel Maultier "Mule" half-track. Introduced in 1941 following the dire Rasputitsa conditions of the Eastern Front that had brought the entire army to a stand still. This conversion, utilizing the track system of the obsolete Panzer I, gave the German army a very competent all purpose mover and it would see action through out the rest of the war.

The new Warlord Games plastic kit features crisp detail in an easy to build format and allows you to build either the standard Opel Blitz truck with canopy up (open or closed at the rear) or down, or the enigmatic Maultier variant. Plus you'll find all those cool extras, such as data cards and vehicle damage markers, to help field either vehicle on your Bolt Action battlefield!
