Very nicely done! The detailing on things like the officer's wrist watch is fantastic.
Converted from what, by the way?

Hi, Jacques,

Nice work indeed! I am very curious, parts of which figures you did use as their base. I just identified the Italeri 8th Army officer according his wrist watch. :-) How did you obtain your nice Czechoslovak vz. 32 helmets? Many thanks in advance.

Regards
Tomas

Hi , friends.

Thank you very much for the comments.
I'm glad that the Slovak friend liked the figures.
The helmet was carved and then I made resin copies.
The first two photos are white metal figures from the manufacturer Underfire Miniatures, only changing head
In the other photos, the officer is German of Esci, with arms of the officer of the Eight Army, also of Esci. The other two soldiers were made with various parts of Caesar, Airfix and Esci figures.
