On the Edge of the Precipice - Feldwebel, 389 Infantry Division, Stalingrad, 1942

I am going to call this done on this prescient narrative of a Landser perched precariously off the edge of a bombed out rubble during the early stages of the Battle of Stalingrad. I suppose it does reflect the hubris of the Army Group South during the summer of 1942 - and not realising the vulnerable situation they will soon find themselves later that winter. 

As a finishing touch, I decided to incorporate some building features like the street lamp and rain gutter from MiniArt Models. The painting was mainly done with acrylic paint from AK Interactive and Vallejo. For now this might be the closest I can get to making a diorama.  





Cheers,

Calvin
