New German Grenadier Starter Army for Bolt Action from Warlord Games

With the release of the German Grenadier plastic box set, Warlord Games figured it'd be a good time to create a whole starter-set for Bolt Action that features these new figures. Whether you want it to be Heer or Waffen-SS, this starter set is a great place to jump into the game. Usually they create these starter forces to be 1,000 points. But this time around, they're giving you a bit extra, letting you make around a 1,250 point force (suggested, since you can theoretically outfit your figures differently from how they do it) with these kits.

Starter Army Contents

This particular army deal contains: 6 Grenadier sprues, Heer 81mm medium mortar, Heer MG42 medium machine gun team, Heer PaK 40 anti-tank gun, Sd.Kfz 234/4 Puma armored car, and a Stug III G/StuH42 assault gun.

Here's a suggested list that they give for what you can build with the models:
