Warlord Games continue to expand their Bolt Action range of 28mm Second World War miniatures, bolstering the German forces with a squad of Waffen SS in winter gear.

Winter SS

Always at the forefront of the fighting, the Waffen-SS were well-equipped, even as the supply of new materials and weapons became more of an issue for the Third Reich as Allied bombing campaigns pummelled German industry.

Equipped with the best weaponry the Wehrmacht could field, the Waffen-SS fought with discipline and tenacity, although they had little choice as they knew the enemy would give no quarter to their hated foe – SS troops being dealt with brutally, if captured.

Although the winter conditions are synonymous with the Eastern Front, the operations in the Ardennes and Italy also saw troops in dire need of cold weather gear – after all, the Italian winter in 1944 was the coldest for 150 years…

These figures are modeled wearing a mix of the wool-lined M40 and fur-lined M43 parkas issued to Waffen-SS troops – the latter being available in grey, tan or Italian camouflage pattern.

This boxed set contains a 10-man Waffen-SS squad, which breaks down into:

  • 1 NCO and 1 additional trooper with assault rifle
  • 2-man LMG team
  • 4-men with rifle (2 with panzerfaust)
  • 2-men with assault rifle & panzerfaust

These models are cast in metal, in 28mm scale – and have been designed for use as part of Warlord Games' Bolt Action ruleset.
