During Germany's September Campaign into Poland, the Polish 10th Mechanized Brigade, under the leadership of Col. Stanislaw Maczek, defended their homeland against the 3rd German Mountain Division at Jordanow, as well as the 1st and 2nd German Mountain Divisions at Lwow.
So what can you get? All the packages come with 4 metal figures and are obviously unpainted and unassembled and available from Gorgon Studios.
For the Germans you can choose from four sets:
The one on the left is wearing the reversible smock and carrying an MP-38. Next is a Mountain Troop leader in windbreaker, also with an MP-38. The NCO taking a knee is wearing the standard tunic and carrying a mountain carbine. On the right is an officer in standard tunic with binoculars and Kar98k.
The Polish army adopted a version of the 1918 Browning Automatic Rifle, commonly known in the USA as a BAR, as their squad level support automatic weapon. This pack comes with two gunners and two loaders, all in Stahlhelm and tanker jackets. These will add much needed firepower to your 10th Mechanized squads trying to slow down the German invaders!
These figures man portable Anti-Tank weaponry ala 1939! The results of a Top Secret Polish program codename "Uruguay", the Kb ppanc wz.35 was a 7.9mm bolt action Anti-tank weapon that was very efficient for its time. Great at stopping those light Panzers! This pack also contains a Granatnik wz.36 46mm Mortar Team, the versatile small mortar used by the Polish during the 1939 invasion.
Two of the figures are wearing the characteristic 'Stahlhelm' that the Polish army had in stores from German and Austrian Great War stocks. The other two are wearing the 10th Mechanized black beret that was issued to all ranks. Two different beret styles were in use at the time hostilities broke out in 1939.
