Digging In: Stalingrad, 1942
"Yenobek, nynemet!" ~ "Man that machine gun!", "Bopc ha Gonee mewkamn cneckom!" ~ "Pile on more sand bags!", "Ectb nN kakNe-nNGo cnobo N3 Aleksyev ha hwen noct ewe?" ~ "Is there any word from Aleksyev at out post yet?". Shouts ring out up and down the street. People hurry about. There is a sense of anxiety in the air. The place is the outskirts of Stalingrad, the date is August 31st 1942. Just eight days after the massive German bombing raid and the citizens of the city prepare for the worst.
About this creation

A small Russian tavern, one of the few buildings not destroyed by the heavy bombing.


A lady sniper (deployed quite often by the Russians) conceals herself in the ruble of the upper floor.


A machine gunner brings an extra amo drum, from the storage room upstairs, for his Degtyarev DP 1928 LMG.


A Soviet soldier turns over a table outside to use as cover.


Even children young enough to still be in school are called to serve. And in a dog-eat-dog world, those who can't eat...


...don't. Their bodies are covered up by the never ending assault of snow, and they lie forgotten, just another soldier.


Stalingrad was one of the bloodiest battles in history. Cassualties, captives and KIAs (Killed In Actions) on both sides numbered two million by the time the last Germans had been repelled, encircled and slaughtered.


The MOC from behind (in this shot you can see the storage "room" on the upper floor)...


And above.

And outside left by the bomb.

And the figs.

Quoting Christian Collins cool a little sad but it looks like the battlefront in call of duty 2!
It was supposed to be a little stark I guess. If thats the right word... But yeah, maybe not horribly depressing, but serious. Thanks for commenting. =)

Quoting Raze Master It seems like you REALLY don't know how to write Russian words. And why is there a Harry Potter minifigure and a indiana jones minifigure? Not to sound like a d-bag or anything, but this REALLY needs some work. I hope you understand.
I do, thanks for commenting, everything you say is considered, and it really helps. As a matter of fact, I think everything but the child in the MOC uses an Idiana Jones head, there the best I have, but I need some others, do you know where I can buy some good heads? Any way, no I don't know how to write Russian, I used Dictionary.com's translator, and forgot that I could copy and paste the text, so I did my best to copy it. As a matter of fact I think I'll go translate that again. Like I said, thanks for commenting, even criticism lets me know what I'm doing wrong. So thank one last time. =)

Looks good. Also, the addition of the female sniper reminds me of a book I read once. I recommend it, Its called Four Steps to Death.

I used the Dictionary.com translator, I clicked Russain, but I'm not sure exactly what it translated it to. There were also a whole bunch of weird characters that aren't on my keyboard, so I just picked the ones the most resembled. Thats way kool that your Russain, and I just might run something by you if I decide to do a bigger one! I'll also upload pics of how to make the LMG to the group! =)
