Eastern Front Vignette ~ "The Last Man" - Finished!

Well, it only took one previous episode before finishing this piece which is a testament to how simple these things can be, especially when you've already got the bits and pieces laying around from other builds. I'm rather pleased with how this one turned out, and I hope you are as well.
Before I jump in with the pictures, in no way do I intend to shock or offend by the addition of blood to the scene. To some, there may appear to be more blood than necessary but I'm hoping to convey a rather hopeless atmosphere for both characters involved. As modelers of military vehicles and components we can't kid ourselves by modeling things that make us and every one else comfortable. I think too often we simplify war with our models that show a bunch of GI's shooting the breeze over a few cigarettes, and romanticize it by focusing on the immense and impressive tanks and airplanes operated by these people. No, in this scene I wanted to show suffering. I just hope that its in as good taste as can be for such a subject.

The Last Man...


  1. Looks great and as mentioned before excellent use of parts. The figures are brilliant they bring so much life to the scene.

    1. Thanks, I really appreciate the comments! Still working on figures in 1/35 though. Much different than working with larger scales, like action figures.

  2. Yowzers! just found your blog. Fine work and quite spectacular!
