Hello,
Here is my latest small vignette with two Waffen SS grenadiers, a tough veteran and a youngster from the replacements. The historical background for the scene is located somewhere around the relief attempts of Budapest in 1945 where Waffen SS divisions hold tight in vain...

Nice little vignette Radek. Although small, subjects like this require much thought in regards to finishing. The camouflages on the uniforms look tight.

Happy Modeling

Those two faces really tells their story. An old, frustrated warrior and a newbie,lot of fear but still excited of what will happens. Great work my friend!

Best regards,
Jari

I've seen. No easy thing. You tell a nice story with just 2 figures,also not easy.Nice to see a Pionier also. But why the Stg44 guy with Kar98 ammo pouches?

Thank you very much for the responses, glad you like the camo, it's rather an attempt in painting it so I guess I'll improve next time The groundwork was done with some simple acrylic resin based pasta.
Jerry, the figure was inspired by a drawing from a russian book about Waffen SS, showing a bearded grenadier with a StG on his shoulder and Mauser ammo pouches, I though it's a nice touch and gives that little special thing to a figure, some diversion.
Again thanks for the involvment and see you soon with something new.

Hi Radek,

Nice figures there, just one question, how do you make the beard?

Thanks
Alex
