I purchased a last levy box set from Warlord as I just love the characterful models. I decided to put them into 3 batches. Two Volkstrum batches to paint and a Hitler Youth squad. I painted up the first batch of 6 just to realize I had a kid in the mix. Apparently he jumped into the citizen levy when I wasn't looking. That is what happens when you don't turn on lights in the basement to move to your painting table. He'll get moved over when I paint up the rest of his unit.
Below my valiant defenders of the fatherland are taking cover in the sandbags outside of the city. Move those panzerfaust into position!
I can't resist a black and white picture for this time period. I just like the guy in the hat too. I might make him my squad leader.
Even old carts are being used to defend themselves from the Red Army. It looks like Germany is in dire straights.
