LATE WAR GERMAN SUPPORT - Adjuntant, Forward Observer and Medic


Some Support additions for my Late War German Infantry .

Adjuntant , Forward Observer and Medic



The medic is a warlord games German infantry figure with Green stuff putty used to construct his medic bag,pouches,arm band and fill in a few modifications to his arms.


The Forward Observer is a sandwich, between a  Warlord games late war Grenadier and  Perry DAK figures. 
Brass wire added  for a Arial and radio cords.
Green stuff putty was used to sculpt the straps on the rifle and head set. 

The last figure is a Adjuntant, - I know you don't need to construct one for Chain of Command support but I like to represent him as a figure ,if I decide to purchase one from my Support. I usually place him near my CoC Force morale tracker.




cheers John

  1. Wonderful work John. I have just started looking at using green stuff myself but feel I am a bit clumsy with making things. Is there a set of tools you use and any key pointers at all you can share? For example how did you make those fantastic medic bags buckles?

    1. Thanks Carlo,
      you only need a instrument called a Le cron craver, follow the link:

      or http://www.ultimatedental.com.au/le-cron.html , there both do the same job except one has a sharper point. I work as a Dental technician so I possess both.

      I am modelling stuff for a head of a figure but it shows how to break down individual parts to complete a task.
      For the bag, you roll a piece of Green stuff putty into a roll and then flatten it out on a glass stab. trim to the size you want, it should look like a box. next use the flat part of the blade pressing onto the putty shapping into a bag, use the blade to create the lines that define the opening of the bag.roll small pieces of the green stuff and trim to size and place them on the bag. it a process of working on each individual items one by one. don't try to shape the bag from one piece of green stuff.
      You can also search on you tube, I am sure there are videos on how to shape up equipment using putty.
      hope this helps.
      note: moisturizing the blade with water helps the le cron blade from sticking onto the green stuff.
      cheers John

    3. Yes, hope to put one on this year at MOAB in Sydney but have not decided on which period of WW 2 yet. Next January there will be a Pacific theme Chain of Command event in Canberra.

  4. Great figure customizations! You should consider doing some commission sculpting. The shading and color layering work on the uniforms on these is excellent. Really stunning figures.

  6. You're an absolute wizard with that green stuff, my sculpted bags always end up like big splodges that only loosely resemble anything called a bag!
