Hiding!! A little story!

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:

I won the second prize in the Multiple Figures competition, only beaten by my good friend Paul from Paul's Bods. This was his contribution. Congrats with the win Paul!

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

On a sunny day in the year 1944 two German Panzer grenadiers are walking on the street somewhere in Normandy and then all of sudden they meet a nun. She looks very nervous. They decide to talk with her.

Good morning. Is everything allright? You look nervous.

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

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:

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

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

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

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.


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.

Hope you liked it ;-)
