The Lost Company 2

Captain Obvious


“Sorry, Captain, but we are hopelessly lost.”

“No, we aren’t, Sergeant. We’re in Europe.”


I got the trees, can you tell? it was so much fun placing them and trying to randomize them, it just got nicer and nicer.


But then I noticed the trees were a little too green, so I got some Hauser Dark Green and dry brushed the trees a bit.


The Germans achieved a total surprise attack on the morning of 16 December 1944, due to a combination of Allied overconfidence, preoccupation with Allied offensive plans, and poor aerial reconnaissance. American forces bore the brunt of the attack and incurred their highest casualties of any operation during the war. The battle also severely depleted Germany’s armored forces, and they were largely unable to replace them.


The U.S. forces however, got lost, ran out of gas, mostly due to Monty’s adventures in Belgium, and someone back home forgot that Europe has winters, and men get cold. 


Here’s a short gallery.
