Elastolin hand grenade throwers

In 30s, Elastolin produced different types of hand grenade throwers. I have counted 8 distinctive versions in my collection. All of these soldiers are throwing "potato mashers" (Stielhandgranate). Stielhandgranate is the German term for "stick hand grenade" and generally refers to a prominent series of World War I and World War II-era German stick grenade designs, distinguished by their long wooden handles, pull cord arming and cylindrical warheads. The first models were introduced by the Imperial German Army during World War I and the final design was introduced during World War II by the German Wehrmacht.
