German Landwehr and Dog on rations detail

    I want to acknowledge my friend Ulrich Biroth for sending me the photo that started this vignette. He really has been the font of some amazing German Great War photos! Thanks again, Ulrich!

    This is a Landwehr in modified M1915 tunic, trousers and feldmutze. The M1915 has had the long cuffs and the epaulettes removed. He is carrying a metal pail of food. The dog is a German short-haired pointer, the "company dog", also doing his bit. I dotted the ground work with just a few of the autumn leaves I'm making. There will be lots more on the final version. I used an autumnal backdrop which I think helped the photos a bit. The figures are MS except for bits of MS and kneadatite. The boots and head come from a casting of one of my figures, but both were re-worked to fit the scene. Pretty simple piece. Hope you like it!

    My friends, Charlie Duckworth, an Omaha painter more well known for his WWI aircraft models and model railroad stuff, did a great job painting it and Pat Student, a fellow model railroader and photographer took the terrific photos.

    All the best,
    Dan

    Thanks Steve - sometimes simple vignettes are the best, right? As you can probably guess I'm a dog lover... My wife and I share our home with two mini-schnauzers, Zoe and Pip.

    All the best,
    Dan
