This pack represents command elements of the Polish Armia Krajowa (Home Army) during the Warsaw Uprising, although the figures can also be used for generic Partizans, with some being usable as Volksturm, Spanish Civil War, Very British Civil War, or even German forces. Based of off archive images, and in-depth research.
This set includes:
- An officer, in M42 smock, cavalry pants, German mapcase and Polish officer rogatywka. His weapon is the clandestine made Błyskawica submachine gun, an iconic SMG based internally on the Sten, and externally on the MP40, made in a large number by the resistance and designed to be compatible with components from both weapons. He comes in two components: body and map arm.
- A sniper, wearing with German reversable wendejacke which can be painted in either Heer or SS colours, a Beret with antennae which shows him as a veteran of the mechanised Polish forces at the outbreak of the war, Polish bag, and finally a scoped Gehwer 43 as seen on display at the Warsaw Uprising Museum. He comes as a single piece with a seperate head: should you choose to use another head or convert. With a German helmet he would work as a late war German fighter.
- A child runner, based off of an image of Child Soldiers during the Uprising, armed with Kar 98. Single piece.
- A female runner, equipped with VIS pistol and wearing what could be an oversized smock, or one of the home made garments made by the Polish resistance using captured cloth or Zeltbahns. Comes in two components.
These figures were released via Kickstarter.
Supplied without bases. Metal Models have a cast puddle base.
