First Legion

The Waffen-SS was the armed wing of the Nazi Party, and over the course of the war it swelled to 38 divisions. The Waffen-SS Divisions fought on both the Eastern and Western fronts alongside the Heer Divisions of the German Army. They were typically given top priority for equipment over Heer units and were made up of the most fanatic and best trained soldiers. They were extremely effective in any battle; the tank divisions especially had a fearsome reputation.

These hand painted metal miniatures can be used as Panzer Grenadiers from nearly any Waffen-SS division, including: 12th SS Hitler Jugend, 1st SS Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler, 17th SS Gotz von Berlichingen, 2nd SS Das Reich, 9th SS Hohenstaufen, or 10th SS Frundsberg. The inspiration behind these figures was the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers, meaning these figures would represent members of the 17th SS opposing the US Paratroopers at the Battle of Bloody Gulch. However, they can represent any Waffen-SS Grenadier formation. The Battle of Normandy figure range now has some opposition for the US Paratroopers as the Waffen-SS take the field!

Chucking a grenade to flush some Amerikaner from cover, this Grenadier lives up to his name.
