Any suggestions?

Needs context. What would she be doing? Would she be armed?

Possibly one of Bob Murch's Femme Fatales or She-Wolves? link
An Artizan Thrilling Tales Dame?
Bad Squiddo Games will probably have something in their extensive catalogue

There are photos of Eva in a Sound of Music sort of folk costume.


If that's what you'd like to go with, try the woman in Reaper's Townsfolk Mob set. You'll probably want to remove the torch and maybe the rolling pin, as well.

Context: '45, bunkerish.

Perhaps look at the Downfall movie for inspiration.

The Bunkerfied Eva Braun? How about: frazzled, drunken, always with a hedonistic smile, booze bottle in one hand? Kropotkin303's suggestion of the movie "Downfall" would be a great start.

A larger scale figure but good for inspiration.

I would think almost any young female figure dressed in 1930s / early 1940s fashionable clothing would be fine. She liked to dress well, and was medium build and average in appearance. Her appearance would be not too different from the few secretaries Hitler had on staff.

Bobgnar, that's her. Now to find her in 28mm.

I respect your opinion Buck, but don't mince words. How do you really feel?

So far, Reaper's appropriately named Femme Fatale appears the best option.


Based on Buck's advice I will substitute a bottle of schnaps for the pistol.

Then again, I might keep the pistol:

Hair too long, face to Asian looking and long., Hat too silly. Check out pop figures various "dames". Brigade miniatures has a nice selection of 1930s women in their gangster range.

Remedy: An Exacto #11 blade and a different paint scheme. Beside that, Frau Hitler was no stranger to hats or longer hair.
