    Top notch work!
    If I may I would have chosen some much younger looking faces for the HJ...

    I know that there were a few old guys, the very oldest was their 34 yo commander...
    I have a problem with those hard bearded faces: they look well beyond their 20ties while HJ roster in '44 was mostly composed of teenagers from 14 to 18 years old. Later on they even included in the HJ kids from 10 to 14.
    As they are depicted here to me they can belong to any other waffen SS unit: at least one of them should have a clean face that has not yet known any shaving blade. My 2c anyway.

    I don't anything about this young group. I'll have to look them up. These guys look good. I'm trying to complete an mg34 and mg42 team right now. I'll use these guys as inspiration.

    Wow, these are FANTASTIC in every way. I really like the faces, haven’t seen those anywhere. Did you repaint them?

    Excellent on the entire display.

    you're wrong the age of the fighters HJ was up to 28 years
    my heads are good neither too old nor too young is if it bothers you a lot don't look

    Ignore the nit-pickers. These are amazing beautifully-detailed figures in every way! So incredibly life-like, they give off a war-weary, resigned feel that make me empathize with what these young men on both sides had to go through. As for not looking 20-something, I think that war ages people pretty fast.

    War absolutely ages people in different ways. I can tell you that for sure.

    Beautiful work as always! So natural, so lifelike. Using the actual fabric to its advantage and not overly managing the cloth pieces that then look unnatural. Your works always have the perfect balance...

    Nice work on this MG team!

    I like that you took it your own way and didn't replicate the well known 12th SS squad photos we all know and love.

    Superb job! Especially on the seamless joints on the figures!
