Hi!

Just wondering why the box cover for Heroes Against the Red Star Set in the Cold War features a WW II German E100 tank counter (it never reached production in WW II even)? Is it actually included could be cool for a what if WW II scenario...

It's included as a Belgian ( I think) vehicle. Assumes they made it from plans after the war. So yes there is actually a counter included.

The E-100 first appeared in Honneur & Patrie and there was a scenario using it (and the King Tiger) called Do Not Go Gentle. This scenario did not make it to Heroes Against The Red Star but can now be found in LNLT Compendium vol.2

Thank you Gentlemen!

Part of the standardisation of German tanks as part of the E-Series plan the E100 was another mad idea that (thankfully) diverted resources from the German war effort...would have looked impressive though!
