In march 44 dutch ss volunteers fought at the Narvafront together with the 11.SS. Nordland.The losses against the russians were heavy and bitter!

I tried to depict a scene from the moment after a fight,wounded carried out of a trench and will be tranported to a fieldhospital.

Here are a few photo's from my dio:





And one before painting:

Hello Roger,

This is really a scene which is perfectly balanced reflecting a dramatic situation in a very convincing way!
Everything is perfect:
- Vehicle
- Figures
- Environment

Where did you get this nice wounded soldier which is transported by his comrades?
Scratch or something offered also for normal buyers?

Best regards

Hopefully we can see more of your perfect compositions
Gert

Amateurish....thats how I feel when I see your latest Creation and here I mean - me, myself !! I feel still playing in a sandbox comparing to you.

The error is when I EVERY time you have created something new I say : this is your best yet and I Think that freaking Dutch guy cannot do any better....but he can , he can !!! he fu...can. That man has overnaturally forces like he was from Venus or Mars.

Tell me, how do you do it all ?

Neverless , you cannot imagine how much I enjoy your last Dio here...I tend to say again , this is your best and...and acctually one of the best Vig./Dio I have seen. How "high" can you climb ? Where is your bar ?

Roger apart from my lines above i can only say WOOOOOOWWWWWWW.

I just wish I have created someting like this with a 250 Neu and WSS grenadiers from I./NORGE in...well you can guess

It all seems so simple for you...How can you paint Three guys tight together.....No no you are not human !!!

Brother , you made my night and day for a long time on.

Now I must go back to look at the pics..

Just two question :
Was the AA 11 250/9 in plain yellow - or do I see wrong ?
The officers neck and head seems a bit stressed IMO , have you tryed him look in direction like what i done here below ?
