Heavy Metal - German style

Heavy Metal - German style

Postby laurence strong » 07 Dec 2013

My submission to the build is a conversion of Warlord Games Soviet 12cm mortar into German use. I ended up using the Soviet figure with the round, turned him into a Hiwi (did a head swap and gave him some German kit), And yes, there was an OKH directive forbidding the arming of Hiwi's, however I am sure it was done, considering that Stalin considered them as "former Russians". They did not have much to look forward to if reunited with their former country men...... The other figures come from the plastic infantry box with a couple hands cut off and re-positioned

So here you are:

Thanks for looking
