So was he just there in the box by himself? Fighting a desperate rearguard with just five rounds and a bayonet?

Nice painting by the way.

Strange how Caeser throw odd figures in with their sets sometimes  :?
He looks really good  :thumb:
Now you´ll have to do the rest of the set...maybe it will come with a commando  :)

West1871, your painting skills are truly impressive,but it seems the photo isn't working anymore.

Thanks 8-)
