Got the WLG bunch coming across the sea in the air or something as a happy birthday to myself thong :) can't wait they are so full of character, need to get a cringing, crouching AH for them to waste there lives on type scenarios. Any ideas where? BTW very nice painting and conversions.

Great paint job. But I have one question. Why are the swastikas blued out? I don't mean to promote swastikas (I had a couple of uncles who fought the Nazis in World War II), but you did such a good job painting them so realistically I don't understand why you covered them in blue. Once again, I want to note that you did a splendid job on the figures. They look great.

Great paintjob. I never knew gasmasks were worn to protect from the backblast from the Panzerschreck.

@Kevin. In Germany (and a couple of other European countries) itīs illegal to Show the swastika (and a shedload of other symbols) on models etc* and if you do, it can lead to a massive fine and or imprisonment

*with some exceptions

Thanks for all the very nice comments guys! Really appreciated!

@Zargon: I know there is one manufacturer who has a miniature of him in his pulp range, but even if my life depended on it, I can not remember… sorry.

@Kevin C: As Paul said it is illegal to publicly use (and posting photos of your miniatures would fall under that) Nazi symbols like the Swastika, SS Runes, certain versions of the sun wheel and so on here in Germany. It is a criminal offense and even in the best case, being found guilty would mean that I would no longer be allowed to work in the job I learned. So all the photos had them blued out (or had the minis turned in a way that you could not see them anyway). Sorry for that, but rest assured… they are there and the execution matches the rest of the minis!

Thanks again guys!
