First Legion

The Waffen-SS represented the armed wing of the Nazi Party, and over the course of the war it crept up to 38 divisions. They fought on both European theatre fronts, Eastern & Western, alongside the Heer Divisions of the German Army. Unlike the Heer, the Waffen-SS were typically given top priority for equipment over Heer units and were made up of the most fanatic and fearless soldiers. They were extremely effective in battle; the tank divisions had an especially 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 for these figures was the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers, so 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 range of figures now has some opposition for the US Paratroopers as the Waffen-SS take the field!

Firing his Mauser, this Grenadier engages the tenacious Amerikaner opposition.
