I'm happy to announce my latest army build for Adepticon Bolt Action Doubles - a Volkssturm army during the Fall of Berlin, 1945. This model is the excellent Empress Miniatures 8.8cm FlaK36 with "Militia" crew from their Spanish Civil War range. It's a beautiful model, well priced, and suited for both SCW and WW2 gaming. The majority of the crew are Empress (with the addition of greenstuff armbands), but I also included a Warlord Luftwaffe spotter and Bund Deutsche Madel assistant from Warlord's "Last Levy" boxed set to meet the requisite number of models required for Bolt Action.

Very unusual, and a nice change from the usual lantern-jawed SS men that everyone seems to love. I'm guessing the fluff is that it's an 88mm that's been pulled out of a depot or something and pressed into service, hence the early war grey scheme.

One point - the red bricks are a bit jarring, and distract the eye from the models themselves. And the red around them (brick dust?) looks too much like blood. Maybe re-do these in a more subdued brick colour?

Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
