Hello,

This is one of my latest projects, a small vignette about the landing in Normandy.
The two figures are from Nemrod, the U.S. Pathfinders.
I painted them with Vallejo acryl and finished them with some pigments.










The vignette,





At night....just landed....





I hope you like it, please let me know.
Thanks for looking, Peter

The guys look good, every bit the part.

A US veteran is someone who, at one point, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including their life.'

They look the part. While there are others in the series from Nemrod these two are compatible for the idea of the vignette. Good work.

I've painted them before. The minus points (not the painter's fault) are the too many and unneccesary folds/creases on the uniforms. The heads all have the same features and the feet are too narrow. The nice touch is the cricket clicker on the kneeling figure. I also remember chin cups are included. Some resin sets from other lines do not have this. Dragon thoughtfully included these parts for their paratroopers.

Cheers
Patrick

Nice painting, scenery etc. but most noticeable to me is the convincing face blackening. The faces are good and the the black(burned cork?)looks like the guys in contemporary photos.

It would be a perfect 10 if they were 82nd ABN.
