Описание: Hitler created the Sniper Badge on August 20, 1944, to impel soldiers to train and be used as snipers. Thus the strategic importance of single combat was stressed in highly stylized propaganda. Since the soldiers themselves to a special extent were in sight of the enemy troops, unlike the members of other service arms, experienced the death of their enemies directly, the numbers of volunteers did not reach the planned extent. In this concise history, this badge, as well as the actions of German snipers, is examined and includes color images of badges, weapons, awards, soldbuchs, and war era photos.

But this sniper is no ordinary marksman…The author first visited Stalingrad in 1959, and made subsequent visits in 1963 and, most recently, in 2006, when he met Tania Chernova, the heroine of this novel.

Описание: While it may seem easy to paint a three dimensional miniature figure, to do it properly requires a practiced hand and some artistic techniques. Because the figure is so small the shadings and highlights must be emphasized to make the figure seem realistic. Mike Davidson has years of experience painting miniature military figures and in teaching the art to others. Using a combination of hobby paints and oils he is able to create a visual effect that brings life to the cast or sculpted figures. In this book Mike takes a commercially produced casting and takes the reader through the process of assembly, painting and mounting, ending with a figure that would be a proud addition to any collection. Each step is clearly photographed and captioned so that the reader may follow them. While applied to a particular figure, the lessons learned from this book will enhance any painting the reader may choose to do.
