Probably because the Field of Honour in question is more of a pathetic, not entirely sufficiently armoured position armed with a popgun in the face of one of the biggest amphibious operations in history :lol: .

Great work!

Thanks :D

Well, he're someone to motivate him :twisted:

I had a change of plans and picked the NCO from Zvezda's Halftrack crew instead. Like the other fellow he has a Hornet head, his cap still needs a little adjusting...

Yes, this head :mrgreen: Too bad Games Workshop doesn't make 1/35 figures, he'd fit right in there :lol:

Meanwhile the base plate is complete. I made some weld seams with a fine application of Vallejo putty and added a few of the legendary MENG NUTS! :geek:

Time to look for a suitable base...

And here's the full setup:

Image

I think I'll replace the binoculars, these just seem too clunky. I also think I have some photoetch belt buckles and medals somewhere, these should improve the details on Mr Chaos Berserker Officer Guy a little.

Image

I ordered a small wooden base, same size as the cardboard here. It won't get any larger than this :geek:

I really like the way this is coming together Philipp. :) Nice and simple but full of interesting details. Gotta love those Meng nuts. ;)
