Great model, but creepy. Personally, I could do without the dead guys in it.

Little bit of appropriately sprayed cotton wool/clump foliage/vape cotton filter coming out the top should hide the corpses easily (if you don't like them) and make it look freshly brewed.

I agree about it being creepy. What in the heck was the sculptor thinking? I wouldn't buy one.

Yeah, "Creepy" was my first thought, too.

Maybe trying to add death to a static display is going too far.

… And please don't anyone say we're "gaming death," anyway.

We're playing with toy soldiers!

We should be thankful, at least there are no body parts lying on the base.

Ah, it is a piece of scenery which can be used: to scavenge weapons ammo etc., hide behind; siphon fuel, and more. Nice job Martin.

Nice piece of terrain. I don't see anything wrong with this piece at all.

Sadly if it was dead Jerries or Ivans i dont think folks would have the same ethical issue.Its a wargaming model nothing more.Could be a squad of GIs passed out in a wreck after raiding a wine cellar just as easily.

I can do without it. Wrecks can easily be portrayed by using a vehicle model and some cotton or a marker to denote the status. The addition of the dead soldiers in this sculpt I don't find at all appealing or appropriate for my gaming table. Those that do, that is their choice.

I like it.

I dont see the difference between this and using casualty markers/dead figures on bases. But each to their own. Just dont judge me by my choice 😀

Why is it creepy? Why are you playing wargames?

Great looking piece.
