I love cinema. One of the key elements of cinema is visual storytelling. Just like the soundtrack audibly tells a story (if done well, ie Star Wars, The Good, the Bad & the Ugly, Jaws) costumes and set dressing (if done well) can help tell a story too. This is one reason Bladerunner is a masterpiece.
What does this have with a kitbash converted mini?
I have had a mini idea in mind ever since I saw two parts in two different Warlord Games WW2 kits. The shotgun on a bent arm and the head with soft cap & cigarette. I knew I wanted to create a specific mini and to have that mini be somewhat iconic.
The question is, am I one the right track?
Using bits from 4 different Warlord WW2 kits and some greenstuff I have built this fellow...
What do you think he is supposed to represent? I will give you some hints, WW2 (ish) US Army European theater. What rank, position, unit do you think he is? Some folks (looking at@JTam ) may think he is a bit too “Hollywood” but I am going for something specific and think there were real world equivalents based on some folks I knew when I served.
More info on my blog...
So what do you think?
