Great piece with great atmosphere - one can really feel the "hopelessness"! Don't know if it is just me and it is not a criticism, but the deep orange brick rubble appears very bright and may stand out less if it is blended in more with the rest of the rubble?

To me it almost looks like the two soldiers have had an argument and aren't talking to each other. Probably because one criticized the other for wasting too many shells. Great weathering and chipping!

An idea for dramatic effect: The two soldiers could huddle together behind the gun, or have one firing the last shell and the other hiding behind some crates, etc. The scene might benefit from some impending threat from out of the frame...

Again, nice work.

Ozgur,

It brings up questions for me. The hopelessness seems derived solely from running out of ammo? Or perhaps they are just exhausted? Judging by all the shell casings they were fighting very hard... and then... just gave up? Why don't they flee rather than be captured?

You've made a sweet gun but perhaps it is too clean and satiny to give the needed vibe---the literalness---that the Third Reich is utterly run down and decrepit.

Brilliant figures!

Thanks for your comment. Yes, you´re right about orange brick rubbles.

Thanks again..
