"TOWARD THE WINTER FRONT"

Here's my finish inspired by the, "German Winter Warfare Manual." The tree dragged to help avoid air identification of tracks. Whitewash buckets with brushes for camo. Heated stones for use similar to hot water bottles. = 2 cold Germans.

Thanks for looking!

These german soldiers have a lot of work before their marder becomes invisible on the snow!
Good job Greg!

Greg,

good job. You crossed the finish line. I like your use of the figures. It reminds me of Chicago right now.

Well done.

My hat is off for your bravery, to tackle that particular type of white wash, it does look "field applied" by cold guys! ~grin~

I like the feel of your dio, and the tarp came off pretty good too, IMHO. I like the little window for the gunsight, a good realistic touch.

Another great Marder Mania victory here Greg.

Too much of a good thing is never too much...


Cheers Mate, Pat

Great scene idea. I agree with Pat, making field applications look "right" is tough...congrats on portraying the idea convincingly.

I just ordered the MIG 2nd DVD so I can improve my tanks, and the book "Frozen Hell" as I would like to try some more snow scenes in the future - I guess a Marder Mania graduation gift to myself

Chao amigos!
