For the challenge I have painted up a German soldier vaulting a fallen eagle during the assault on the Reichstag. The soldier is 28mm and from the Raus blister pack by Warlord Games and the eagle and base are from Heer 46.
inspiration for this is a Soviet movie titled 'Fall of Berlin 1945'
released in 1950 and in part has room by room fighting for the Reichstag
which can be viewed in YouTube. The combat is brutal and at times hand
to hand and I have tried to represent the feeling of the battle in my
little simple scene.
The German soldier is not depicted
in the film vaulting an eagle however I feel it represents the fighting
the film is showing as the Russian soldiers advance through the rubble
as Germans defend and counter attack.
