Spoils of war - Band of brothers (Carentan)

Hi Guys,

Here's my latest set up with my Band of brothers figures (All heads can be reproduced depending on interest - PM me if you are interested)

I also made all of the props for this scene (the cart, the shop front and the doors and ((with help from my son)) the shuttered windows)

The scene is not from the series, It's based on a photograph from the book, however I have used the characters from the series rather than the actual veterans.

Hope you like it!:







































All comments appreciated,

Cheers,
Peter.

Very well done. BOB is probably my favorite W.W.II series.

Great shots Peter!

I hope you can post one of your famous "wider" views to show the set up beyond the frame.

Love the troops and the village! Thank you as always for sharing.
