The Freikorps had been in existence in Germany for some time prior to WW1 but really came into their own, following the introduction of the Weimar Republic which was beset with problems, notably from the Communists in the form of the Spartacist League. The Freikorps were instrumental in putting down many Communist uprisings often with brutal results, particularly in the Baltic states where thousands of suspected Communists were executed. Many prominent Nazis were members of the Freikorps including Rohm, Himmler and Ehrhardt which is why the Freikorps are often seen as a precursor to the Nazi party. We have 3 sentry style figures to kick off this series, with another 3 scheduled to follow later including a Communist prisoner. The A version come in German Stormtroop uniforms suitable for late WW1 and the B version come in Freikorps uniform markings, all figures are priced at $41 except the flag bearer who is $49.
