After about 1 week of work, I bring you the second version of my Battle of the Bulge diorama. I was actually debating between making a diorama with a highrise from Crysis 2 or a diorama of Bastogne. Obviously I settled with another WWII dio. Well, I hope it turned out well. Let me know what you think.
About this creation
Welcome to the Ardennes! We're members of the 82nd & 101st, on our way to support the retreating 28th & 106th infantry divisions. My squad was dropped into Market Garden--an absolute faiure. After that, trucks transported us over here, where we're setting up a temporary frontline.
My name is George Adams, and I'm currently at the rank of Sgt. 1st class. I carry a Tommy gun and a .45 in a shoulder holster. I've fought since June 5th, and if my luck keeps up, 'till I can put a round through Hitler's head.
Those two over there are Ed & Bob. Troublemakers, but good men to have around in the heat of battle.
Our camp was set up hastily. We were marching down the line until a Kraut barrage opened up. Lost the majority of the convoy. Most men turned back and ran. Since then, we've only opened fire a handful of times, and plan to move up tomorrow.
That's Joe. He's a knucklehead. Carries his BAR like it's his child or something. Nevertheless, that thing has saved our hide it's share of times.
Here we've got Lenny and Shane. Lenny is a replacement, but everyone loves 'im. Shane is a bit of a loner. He's got an '03 and it's his prized possesion. He was actually in North Africa with the 2nd Infantry but got transfered here at the time of Market Garden. He's a true hero, that kid.
Meet Martin and Charles. Most efficient two-man-team ever. Those guys probably haven't wasted a single round throughout the war, even on that .30 cal. We could all be sleepin' and I'd trust them to watch camp.
It was nice to speak with somebody from back home. Have a safe trip back to the US, and let everyone know we're about to put an end to this war!!!
