Ostfront - 05 by JanBoruta Ostfront - 05 by JanBoruta
Soviet troop: Ready your weapons!
Now! Go!

Soviet soldiers: Huuuuuurraaaaaaah!

German machinegunner: Good God, not again!
Loader: Fire, you idiot, or we won't live the next time it happens!

Machinegunner: And it starts all over again...

...

Finally, I've managed to finish the fifth page of the comic. Drawings not as kick-ass as I expected, but I'm satisified with the Soviet zerg tactics image.

...

Some unsorted pencils used for sketch, shading made with my beloved 4B. :D

Enjoy! :)
Tom.

Very nice, the joy of meatshields. And the good ol' MG-34. I used to know an Austrian guy who graduated from an SS academy right as the war ended, he hadn't recieved the tattoo yet, and he didn't want to surrended to the Soviets, so he just walked home. On the way back, he found an MG-42, being a 16 year old, he loaded it up, went prone, then opened fire on a tree. He was pushed 10 feet backwards before he stopped shooting. Then some Soviet cavalry rode up, and he hid. He told me that he had trained a rifle he found with the MG on them, and was waiting for them to so much as look his way before he shot them, in the end they didn't notice him and just rode away.

No problem. Another one he told me was after he reached Vienna. He was walking home from work, when he heard screaming in English and Russian, tow Americans were arguing with two Soviets. The Soviets grinned at the Americans and said "After we are finished killing these Fascist dogs, we will come and kill all of you Americans too." Then they made some joke about American women liking Russian dick. The Americans looked at each other, looked at the Soviets, looked back at each other, then pulled out their .45s and blew the two Soviets away.

Yes it is, but I would perfer the MG42 at the moment, since I would be able to get rid of a lot of them faster =P

Yes. Not "kick ass" persons but great atmosphere and overall good looking! Thats advantage of comics: you dont have to draw it perfectly and still it have some magic in it...

I like it Jan!

No PPSh, only PPD 40's :P

I wasn't sure if MG42's were there in the end of 1941, so I used an MG34, often omitted in the media yet it was still important in first two years of the war.

SimonLMoore Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh yeah, my mistake, it is clear that they're PPD 40s on full view.

Indeed the MG34 was used as a commander's machine gun on german AFVs right through the war.

jak zwykle Twoje cieniowanie powala ;) nareszcie doczekałem falowego ataku ruskich sołdatów...mogłeś ich nieco bardziej pochylić bo troche ten atak przypomina atak piechoty z początków XIX wieku...spokojnym marszem...a nie według sowieckich standardów "biegiem towarzysze...z tyłu macie nkwdziste " :P ;) bedą nastę;pne części, niekoniecznie ostfront ?

Myślałem o komiksie o Monte Cassino, ale temu raczej poświęcę osobny, "poważny" rysunek.

Dziękować za komenta ;)
