Wehrmacht Solider by ChristoMan Wehrmacht Solider by ChristoMan
NOTE: i will not put a filter on simply due to a picture that can be related barley to Nazisim

Also known as "Heer Infantry" the Wehrmacht were the basic armed forces of Germany during world war 2, they fought many battles, most of them on the Eastern Front, the only times they were ever really on the Western Front was when they began to surrender to the Allies, don't blame them.

one often over looked part of history is just what these mane went through during the war, something any American, English, and especially Australian soldier would never imagine.

the German (in this picture) has clear been on the front for a good few months, and as you can see, has started to grow some hair on his face, many soliders had no time to shave on the
Eastern Front, especially when supplies became so limited.

this is my favorite German Infantry outfit, it is a wide misconception that only Waffen-SS had such outfits, again, most of the best German Troops who were not "Nazis" were stationed on the Eastern Front, the Allies mainly went up against the Volks troops, and SS, who were well equiped.

any Critisism on the drawing i will accept, any racial comments or critisism for a drawins message will be reported, as i am in no mood for any pro Communists and other people who have very stereotypical views on the average German solider.

i might colour this picture too :D though it may take a while.

Not bad for probably the first try on a soilder. (At least from what I've seen). Though (Trying not to be rude here.) I think the head may be a wee bit taller, unless he's carrying a sandwinch in that helmet of his =).

I don't know why but to me it looks like he's mad at the weather, I think he wanted to wash his clothes XD.
