    Hi everybody,
    i'm back after a long silence (lucky guys :p)
    But it was because i worked hard on my first attempt to sculpt a nearly 100% figures :eek:

    This a french & german soldier during the fraternizations during the winter 1914.
    The scale is 1/32e, and it's a gift for my english friend Roger (billyturnip).
    Now he had to paint them.

    All comments are welcome ...

    Sebastion,
    Roger should be very pleased with your Sculpt. Came out very nice.
    One question, is that a crack by the figures Right Elbow of the Right figure as you look at it, in the second photo?
    Cheers

    Very well done - but think about the "kaiserbeard" of the german.

    I think, after four month in trenches they did not look this way.

    Greetings

    Marc & Patrick, many thanks les amis
    (now you know why my dio "Störfang" was in stand-by :rolleyes:)

    Martin, certainly you're right ... Perhaps he washed it for chritmas :eek:
    In fact and i've never seen two same headgear on the pictures, a lot of form and size.
    I didn't want to do a war scene as always, but show brotherhood with clean clothes, german cigar and french wine bottle :) in this first winter of the war.

    Ken, many thanks, as you can see the start of this project was very hard for this first sculpt :rolleyes:

    Seb - Marvelous little vignette and an excellent start to sculpting! Nice story-telling! Very well done! I would have replied to your private message as well, but you are out of space (memory storage). :)

    Anyways, I enjoyed assisting you and if you need help in future, please let me know.

    All the best,
