I have not put up a bash in Forever, I have just not had a urge or desire, but recently after doing some research and study my creative synapsis's starting tingling while studying the Joint American and Canadian First Special Service Force that was specifically created and designed to handle the most deadliest missions in WWII, they were hand picked to become soldiers and chosen because of their diverse backgrounds in Hunting, Mountaineering, Lumber-jacking and the like. They were trained especially in hand to hand combat including karate, jujitsu, boxing, knife fighting etc.
Essentially they were the most covert and deadliest forces of WWII during that time. Their use in the european theater especially in italian mountains was crucial. So much more can be said about them and much can be found online. They were known among the German War Machine as the "Black Devils" for the fierce fighting skills and untamed combat nature, they could also use almost any weapon during the European Theater as they were trained in both allied and Axis weapons in the event they ran out of ammo. They also would collect and strip anything they found after combat or along the way and use it.
I decided to do a 4 man squad I have one more to add, nothing has been weathered on either of the figures, I just managed to start piecing together what i just bought.
I plan on changing stuff out as I go along as far as web gear or harness's and getting better boots etc. When I get everything all together I will start dry brushing and weathering their clothes later.
So please enjoy these photos that I have so far.
P.S. please forgive the back drop of my kitchen my wife in red was making fun of me and my dolls : )
