First Legion: June Update

The following figures are all available for pre-order. Further images and details can be found on the company website or, no doubt, from your local First Legion dealer. Feast your eyes on these. Images courtesy of First Legion and Toy Soldiers Club

First Legion is very pleased to present our sub range of personality figures for the Seven Years War.  The first two are King Frederick "The Great" of Prussia and his trusted Cavalry General, Zieten.   Others will of course follow!  Enjoy!

The Waffen-SS was initially created as the armed wing of the Nazi Party, but gradually over the course of the war was expanded to some 38 divisions. They fought on both the Eastern and Western fronts alongside the Heer Divisions of the German Army

They were typically given priority for equipment and were, at least initially, made up of the most loyal and die hard soldiers. As such they proved extremely capable in battle with the tank divisions in particular being most feared by their opposition

Created for our Battle of Normandy range, these extremely flexible toy soldiers can be used as Panzer Grenadiers from just about any Waffen-SS division. Our inspiration was to have them as members of the 17th SS opposing the US Paratroopers at the Battle of Bloody Gulch, famously depicted in the mini-series ‘Band of Brothers’. With this latest expansion of our Battle of Normandy figure range the US now have some opposition as the Waffen-SS take the field!

Happy hunting!
