When we look back on history, it’s only natural to come up with “what if?” scenarios. How would things have changed if certain factors had been altered. One that plays on many WWII historians minds is “what if the Germans had put the King Tiger tank into action earlier or in greater numbers?” The few that made it certainly did cause issues. Well, you can play out some of those “what if?” scenarios on your Bolt Action tabletops soon, as Warlord Games is taking pre-orders for a new plastic King Tiger kit.
From the announcement:
The Königstiger (officially named the Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. B or Sd.kfz 182) more commonly known as the ‘King Tiger’ or ‘Royal Tiger’ by Allied troops, was a development of the fearsome Tiger I tank. Its introduction to hostilities in 1944 caused significant problems for the Allies but ultimately it saw action too late and in tew fewer numbers to have a game-changing impact on the war.
Packed with stunning detail as you would expect from an Italeri kit, this box contains:
One 1/56th scale hard plastic King Tiger heavy tank with options to build either the Henschel turret or the Porsche turret.
A detailed German tank commander.
A thorough and well-explained colour assembly and painting guide.
Full-colour waterslide decals.
A set of vehicle damage markers.
Bolt Action stat cards, ideal for quick referencing.
