Hiding! A little story!

Posted by Peter on 12 Jun 2011, 10:17

After I painted those Panzergrenadiers I had to do something with them. So I thought why not making a little vignette with them. So I did, and took it with me to the meeting at FIGZ. When I was there I decided to put it in competition and see what happened:

Image

I won the second prize in the Multiple Figures competition, only beaten by my good friend Paul. Congrats with the win Paul!


But what was my contribution? I let you see in a little story. Here it goes.

Image
"Good morning. Is everything allright? You look nervous."

Image
"Good morning. Yes everything is allright, but it's a bit hot
and there's no water in the fountain to refresh myself."


Image
"Oh! If that's what let you shake all the way, we let you go
your way, so you can find some water to refresh."


And the Germans went on. But what was the real reason she act that way. You can find the answer in the next pictures:

Image
"Two men of the resistance and an English commando
are HIDING behind the fountain!"


Image
"Three brave men on a mission to make D-Day a success."

Image
"Jaques is keeping his machinegun ready to attack the Germans if they want to
harm the nun, while Tommy, the commando, is ready to support him when needed"


Image
Their friend, Jean-Louis, is in for a more drastic solution
with his handgrenate!


As allready told everything went right as the Germans gone away, and the brave nun and the three men could succeed in their mission to clear the pad for a succesfull invasion.

THE END

Here are a few more pictures of the vignette. The fountain is from my good friend João from GEM. He has many other nice things in his webshop. Figures are from Caesar, the German Panzergrenadiers (set1), the Partisans in Europe and the WWII British Commandos.

I love the idea of the story only being discernible when you see both sides of the fountain. A well deserved prize I would say.

Thank you all for the nice comments and I'm pleased you liked it :thumbup:

@Ben: the story tells, no water in the fountain ;-) so I can't add a clear sprue, but anyway thanks for the suggestion :-D
