Greetings All,

Looking for information (who, what, and any special rules) for the FoW/Battlefront Miniatures Special Items GE3.

While at Cold Wars this past weekend, I purchased the sealed blister at the flea market (aka Wally's Basement) for $5. USD The only markings/descriptions it had was the factory sticker of "Special Items GE3".

I thought I would simply look it up later on the web for any details or special rules. To my surprise, I cannot find anything on it. The blister contains: a resin Kfz 15, seven figs (driver, sniper, spotter, 2 rifleman, 1 standing SMG, 1 sitting SMG), 4 brick walls, and a MG42 on a tripod. For $5 USD its a really great deal…will even be better if there is a background to it.

Any help will be most appreciated.

Thanks,
Rob

Sounds like you got an oddball.

Parts of GE883 Major Bruno Koenig & Snipers and misc other items?

It probably came from an army box. Sounds like it would be a command group and a sniper team added.

My guess is its the command squad to German Grenadier Company GEAB03 because that has an SMG command team and a sniper team

Thanks for the info. I pulled up pics of the older German Grenadier Company (GEAB03), and I was able to spot all the items from my blister pack.
