About the Fallschirmjäger

When one hears Fallschirmjäger, Crete is the first thing many think of. But even after 1941 they were sent on many missions, often as a "fire brigade" that turned the tide of a battle. 

Monte Cassino, Unternehmen Eiche or Ortona (also known as Little Stalingrad) are names that tell the story of the later years, of the Fallschirmjäger in Italy. And like the Gebirgsjäger, the Fallschirmjäger were equipped with specialized equipment, like the Leichtgeschütze or the Raketenwerfer Püppchen.

After the mud and snow on the Eastern Front and the mountains of the Caucasus, Heer 46 this time covers the Southern front, i.e. the Fallschirmjäger in Italy from 1943 on.

The basic units will - as always - consist of 2 x 10 soldiers and also feature a Mortar Team and a Heavy MG. With regard to the equipment we will focus on the summer uniforms, i.e. short trousers and shirts, etc., worn by the Fallschirmjäger in Italy. We will also cover the fights in and around Montecassino and provide extra add-ons for it. Another hot spot will be the spectacular "Unternehmen Eiche", the rescue of Mussolini by a commando unit of the Fallschirmjäger. As before we will have a closer look at the specialized equipment of the Fallschirmjäger and make as much as possible available to you.

You are in for quite some surprises! A novelty of this Kickstarter is the fact that all miniatures will be sculpted digitally. Our test-miniatures have already been painted by Ruben and the quality of the digitally sculpted miniatures is excellent.

Who is HEER46 and what's the goal of the campaign?

Heer46 is a German company that focuses on 1:100 and 1:56 scale tabletop-miniatures. Founded in 2011, it offers a wide range of vehicles and add-on equipment. Plaese have a look at our webshop www.heer46shop.de

During the Kickstarter-campaign we will put our focus on this highly specialized equipment. We are planning to release the following:

  • Two basic Fallschirmjäger Platoons with 10 miniatures each (6 Rifles, 2 with SMG and 2 with LMG).

In addition to this basic set we will also produce:

  • One 8 cm Grenade Launcher Team (3 miniatures with mortar).
  • One HMG Team (3 miniatures with HMG)
  • Two different Transport Teams.

These sets will form the core units of the Kickstarter. Further unit types will be unlocked as we reach the according stretch goals. You can look forward to HQ, artillery, logistics, etc. You are definitly in for a surprise, cause we prepared quite a lot for you! Help us with this project!

All miniatures come unpainted.

The miniatures are designed as close to the originals as possible. The miniatures are cast in metal by Schilling Figuren (Germany). This way we can ensure the high quality you have come to expect from our miniatures.

We need your help for our Fallschirmjäger miniature-line! Support our Kickstarter-campaign and spread the word!

Risks and challenges

This is the third Kickstarter by Heer 46. Our two Kickstarter "Charkov" and "German Gebirgsjäger" are being shipped to the backers right now.

The shipping date for the "Fallschirmjägerr" Kickstarter is Januar 2019 and judging from our experiences gathered during the last Kickstarter, unforseeable incidents aside, our products will ship on time, since the majority of the products is already finished. All masters are finalized and production starts as soon as the Kickstarter ends:

If, for unforseeable reasons, we can´t make the date we ask you to have some patience:

We already now want to thank you for your support. Without you it would not be possible!
