Blitzkrieg! German Army Starter Set : This army deal is made up of the following:

  • 6x Blitzkrieg German Plastic Sprues (36 Models in total)
  • Plastic Sd.Kfz 251/1 ausf C halftrack
  • Early War German 81mm Mortar Team
  • Early War German 7.5cm leIG 18 light artillery
  • Panzer IV Ausf D

- Most commonly known as the Panzer 38(t), this light tank was originally a Czech design – the LT vz. 38 – which fell under the Third Reich's control when Germany occupied Czechoslovakia in 1938. The 't' in its designation relates to the German for Czech – tschechisch.

This box set contains:

  • One hard plastic Panzer 38(t)
  • A quick reference Bolt Action Stat card
  • A set of damage markers
  • A Full-coloured waterslide decal sheet
  • A detailed construction leaflet

Well-liked by its crews for its dependability and ease of repair, over 1,400 38(t)s were produced and saw active service for Germany during the invasion of Poland, the Battle for France and on the Eastern Front.

Its light weight made it ideal for use as a fast attack or reconnaissance vehicle. With its armament being considered too light against the increasingly heavier enemy vehicles, manufacture of the 38(t) ceased in 1942. It would continue to serve for the rest of the war both with German and Hungarian, Romanian and Bulgarian militaries (the waterslide decal sheet included allows for variants of each of these nations to be built).

The reliable 38(t) would continue to serve the Wehrmacht well by providing the basis for several highly successful variants such as the Hetzer and Marder tank destroyers, as well as flakpanzers.

- The Panzer III Plastic Box allows you to make the Ausf J, L, M, or N variants.
The Panzer III was one of the most numerous German tanks of the war, and was the mainstay of German armoured forces when they invaded France and the Low Countries, then later Russia. It was well armoured for the time and equipped with the 5cm KwK 38 or 39 L/42 cannon, the N variant having a 7.5cm KwK 37 cannon. Set contains one plastic vehicle kit.

- 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!

- Blitzkrieg German Support Group: Blitzkrieg HQ German officers were capable and often experienced leaders. Junior officers were trained to undertake the role of their own immediate superiors, enabling them to use their initiative to take control of situations when necessary. Blitzkrieg MMG TEAM The Germans were equipped with two excellent MG in the MG34 and rapid-firing MG42 – known to Allied troops as ‘Hitler’s Buzz Saw’ because of its distinctive noise, or ‘Spandau’. Unlike other armies, the Germans used the same machine gun both as a squad weapon from its bipod and as a tripod-mounted support weapon. The tripod mount provided a much more stable firing platform and made it easier to keep up a sustained fire using a belt feed. Blitzkrieg Medium Mortar Team The standard German medium mortar of the war was the 80mm Granatwerfer 34. It was a very effective and accurate weapon that could provide longer range, on-call fire support. It had a maximum range of 2,400 metres and could maintain a rate of fire of 15–20 rounds per minute. Models supplied unassembled and unpainted.
