    Here is another piece I have finished lately. A 1/35th scale vignette from the battle of Hurtgen, a largely fogotten part of WWII, mostly due to right after the Germans started their Ardennes offensive.

    Hi Anders,
    Nice to see some ww2 from you - and focusing on non combatants/medics too which is good to see from any modeller. The vignette is very fine.
    Thanks for posting all the sbs.
    Cheers Mat

    I appreciate all your comments!

    This piece was a bit of fun as well as a little tricky to complete! I am wanting to get into more of small vignettes and a bit of story telling with several figures as opposed to single figures. The problem when doing pieces like this is to make the engineering work out so that it is easy to paint, but also that it is easy to assemble once finished. The tricky part with this one was to line up all four hands, and I actually ended up having to sculpt the wrists once everything was painted and glued together, something which I am not really comfortable with doing. Fortunately it all worked out this time! It was a good piece to learn from and I hope to do more vignettes in the near future!

    Scott,

    According to the Genieva Conventions the Medics were non combatants, and as such they were supposed to have either their Red Cross number or the last 4 of their Army Serial Number written on their helmets. I am not sure exactly to what purpose, but perhaps so that the enemy could check up on their story or what not, it is a neat touch though and you don't see this too often in miniature so I thought it would be a neat touch to add to the vignette.

    Thanks for the response Anders. Your right it does add to the helmet and the piece overall. Good job again. If this piece makes it to Tulsa I hope to see it in person.

    Anders, this is superb! You did a fantastic job with everything, kudos on the details for the medic's helmet. The blood mixed with mud on the uniform really adds a layer to the story of how frantic and crazy it is to try and control a wound in the field. I love this, great work!
