It really transfers the "spirit" that Peter said. Great sculpting, too... you should do more ancients (please)! :-)

The idea is not new. For example sets of Esci, Orion, and Ultima Ratio do something similar.
But your figure are in a set of several of this humanity pose. And the high quality of your figures is no comparison to the others.
Very well done Master of figure modelling.

Please some civil figures useful for the 1930,40ties (please)!

So can we say:
Ben90 first.
But Civil figures (1940) second.
Is that Ok? :mrgreen:

A very nice group and very lively figures. My compliments for this work Alex.

A question: How are the hands of the 4 men carrying the wounded attached to the brancard? Or is it a blanket the wounded man lays upon? The traditional way for sculptors to do this was peg-holes. But that is not possible here. Is it with clicking hands around the grips of the brancard?

A critical question too: the poses of the four men carrying the wounded between them, show no sign at all of the heavy load they carry. They walk just straight up. Is this because you re- used four poses that were not designed for carrying this load in the first place? Or are these just four very strong muscled guys?

Remaines the question: Russians?

Bluefalchion, Russian people can get hit too I am afraid.

Alex I would expect you to make Russians only at the moment, but these are not in the topic Modern Russian Army. Is Bluefalchion right?

Mr. Cryns - Yes, they are strong guys, and carry the load almost at a run. But they were still hard. It will be seen on the following photos soon. Figures rejected the part load compensation.

Excellent idea for a diorama Alex. Can I ask you which army vehicles are used in Russia for evacuation of injured soldier from the combat field?
