    Hi All,

    I am presenting to you a small WW1 vignette depicting a scene of two germans ready to attack.
    The officer figure is in my opinion one of the best in Verlinden's series.The second one comes as a part of a small vignette titled "no news from the Western front''.
    I did not make any significant modifications ,it is almost straight from the box.
    Extra effort was put on the groundwork where I also used the base from Verlinden with the skeleton.
    Please feel free to leave any comments/suggestions.

    Very nice, I like it, and I really dig the excellent effort you did on the groundwork, it all "falls together" quite well and it's quite convincing (y)

    ... Just wondering - who sculpted these excellent figures for Verlinden ? Looks like Brian Stewart but I may be wrong ... o_O

    Thank you Johan for your nice comments.I am not sure about the sculptor but I think that I have the same guess like you because the style is very similar..

    Also Derek Holmes produced some WW1 figures for Verlinden

    Really great depiction. Your attention to the groundwork paid off--it helps tell the "story" of the diorama.

    :eek: ... I already thought that the faces on these figures were better than the average Verlinden :wideyed: ... that explains...

    I was thinking of Brian Stewart because there is a similarity in sculpting style with the old S&T Confederate and Union infantry figures - same way of sculpting folds in the clothing etc.
    ... I never realized that you have done work for Verlinden, Mike ?

    The officer is one of my favorites and I will use him also as base for conversion for another figure that I am preparing.....

    Fantastic! I have the soldier and the base and you have done an excellent job on both the figures and the base. Very well done and a fair amount of work too to get it to this stage I can imagine
