    I think you should revise the details again.

    1. Cap:
    Eagle badge is wrong and too large, Rommel preferred the more delicate metal variant of it. I show below his original cap, he wore in France 1944...:

    2. Shoulder Boards:
    Wrong form, they looked completely different from the front.

    3. Orders:
    Rommal wore TWO orders at his neck, the Knights Cross with oak leeves and swords and the Pour-le-Merite from the WW1.
    And: The Knights Cross you sculpted too large.

    4. Coat:
    Two visible buttons are missing, there should be four to be seen on each side, not only three ones.

    5. Pistol:
    Rommels personal pistol was a "Walther PPK", cal. 7,65 mm. The holster of this "Walter" was much smaller than you have sculpted it.

    6. Marschallstab:
    Your figure wears the so-called "Interims-Marschallstab" (for everyday). First, it was longer, but much more delicate than the one you sculpted.

    Summary in the picture:

    I do not say this to make your job badly or to appreciate it, but to give you clues to sculpt a really good figure - especially if it will be a commercial one that should sell well in Germany!


    Cheers

    Thank you for the tips and comments, I wrote them down and used them for the next figurine - I want to sculpt Marshal Rommel again.

    Maybe you could sculpt him in larger scale?
