Those are great pics...by the way, if you look at the pictures of the american paratrooper reenactors, their uniforms are quite similar to the Corbin Black M42s produced by DiD...maybe the coloring and design weren't so far off for the R&D boys down at DiD

Something about the 1/1 and 1/6 coming together that makes for a unique look.

I gotta say the Concept has produced the best looking dio terrain I have ever seen. You had me fooled into thinking you guys took these outside. Totally inspiring!!!!!!!!!

Looks like it was a great event. Thanks for all of the wonderful pictures.

I've got a question and a comment.

First, being as this was in France, are "most" of the reenactors Frenchmen?

Second, as with all reenactor groups, you can certainly see the variety of types of people who reenact.

I speak specifically of the taller American Airborne guy with a beard (!) in the second picture. The same fella looks like he's outgrown his jump suit too.

Ah well, I guess we all can't look like Dick Winters eh?
