1943 Awards up-close


Just a short work over on what everything is historically with the uniforms:

1938

Uniform - dated around August 1938, the Allgemeine-SS (General SS) were still wearing the black uniforms and Nazi Party arm badge, they would change to the field grey the next year.  The white officer belt was issued only to those who served in the Liebstrande Adolf Hitler division

Ribbon Bar (left to right) - 1913-1918 Iron Cross, Honour Cross of World War I (aside from the WW I Iron Cross this was the only official service decoration from WWI the Nazi's allowed WWI vets to wear), SS 12-year long service medal, Anschluss Medal (entry into Austria), Sudenteland Medal (Entry into the Sudetenland)

Awards - Golden Party Badge of Honour (center of breast pocket; awarded by Hitler to the first 100,000 NSDAP members as well as those who performed outstanding services for the NSDAP); WWI Black Wound Badge (bottom left side of breast pocket; wounded once or twice);1914-1918 Iron Cross First Class (WWI Iron Cross); Veteran in Service with the Army or Police Chevron (left sleeve; mostly awarded to those who served in WWI)

Rank - Obersturmbanfurher (Lt Colonel equivalent) in the Liebstandarte Adolf Hitler Division (Adofl Hitler cuff title - right sleeve cuff; the Liebstandarte division started out as Hitler's bodyguard division under the command of Sepp Deitrich. Later on they would form one of the first and one of the more successful divisions of the Waffen-SS)

1943

Uniform- dated around January 1943, by this time all SS member (whether originally Allgemeine-SS or Waffen-SS) wore the field grey uniform of the Waffen-SS.  Those that were not members of the Waffen-SS beforehand also ended up receiving ranks within the organization as well. By this time, everyone was also issued the black leather belt (officer's received the one shown).

Ribbon bar (left to right) - 1913-1918 Iron Cross, WWII Iron Cross First Class, Honour Cross of WWI, SS 12-year Long Service Medal, Anschulss Medal, Sudenteland Medal, Memel Medal (Entry into Memel Territory of Lithuania), Eastern Front 1941 to 1942 medal (Russian Front participation medal)

Awards - Knight's Cross with Silver Oakleaves (collar; the Knight's Cross came in five grades, this is the second which is above the regular Knight's Cross); Golden Party Badge of Honour (middle of breast pocket), Silver Wound Badge (lower left side of breast pocket; WWI wounds were counted as previous service wounds under the Nazi empire once war broke out); 1914 and 1939 Iron Cross Bar Set (awarded tot hose who had received the Iron Cross First Class in WWI and again in WWII); Golden Assault Badge (awarded to those who participated in 6 separate infantry or tank assaults); 2 Black Tank Destruction Strips (one atop the other on left sleeve; Black badges meant the recipient had destroyed a single tank without any help from armoured units, they'd stack them one over the other until they reached five tank destruction and then award a single gold strip); Veteran in Service with the Army or Police Chevron (lower left sleeve)

Rank - Brigadefuhrer/Generalmajor der Waffen-SS (Brigadier General equivalent) serving as a staff member to the SS High Command (the Reichfuhrung-SS cuff title - right sleeve cuff; those who served as staff members to Himmler and other SS High Command members wore this cuff title.  By this time, der Zauberer has moved away from serving in the field and taken over Karl Maria Wiligut's position as Himmler's personal magus (moving into more of a support role, as previously alluded to). Wiligut held the position until 1939 when "health problems" and the fact that the previously confidentially sealed papers showing Wiligut had previous spent time in a psychiatric ward after being deemed insane were released to the public in 1938 by Karl Wolff forced him to retire.  Himmler knew Wiligut's history but had kept the papers sealed from the public to avoid humiliation.)


Still got a ton of work to do on it...got two faces and two set of hands to do and a try out on some new skin colours..maybe...

Well, he wouldn't be as awesome if not for the port of Doc Strange you did, DM. If not for the fx work you did, I wouldn't have been able to crib/study that work for these fxs.

Hi there!  My name's Mike and I'm new to this thread.  Very cool detail work on your skins!  Such talent - I was wondering, do you have an avatar that you use in the Character Tool?  You have an interesting name and I would like to learn more about you and what you look like.
Sincerely,
-Mike

Re: DJ's place of preversion - die Faust
« Reply #493 on: October 24, 2018, 05:19:48 PM »
Alright, on to the bruiser of the team, die Faust. Originally he appeared like this:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)


He hasn't changed too much in design since then but he now looks like this:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Ortho

Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Face up-close

Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Action


Only thing historical to mention on die Faust is the shirt/vest.  Each branch of the German Armed Forces has what they called "Sports Uniforms" - they came in three categories: track suits, workout wear, and swim wear -  that they used for sports events and PT that had the forces emblem plastered on it - Luftwaffe had their flying eagle; SS had the SS runes; the SA had a fancy SA emblem; The Wehrmacht/army (which die Faust wears) had the steel eagle.  So, what you see die Faust wearing is the sports vest from the workout wear of the Wehrmacht instead of the Wehrmacht coat - with those muscles, he'd be really constricted in a uniform coat.

Looks great.
What sticks out the most to me is the improved cut of the shirt. Might seem like a small detail but just looks so much more realistic.

Got a few minutes to scan the forums and had to comment on these.

I agree that your uniforms and clothing are great. But the face work is incredible. I especially like der Zauberer. He looks like he is slowly turning into a drained husk from using his awful powers. Fantastic work there.
Die Faust looks like he is perpetually angry/depressed to me. His frown is very deep.
I forgot about Nebal. I like her unmasked. But either way would work.

While the updated version is fantastic, I have to admit, I kind of like the aged look of the original.

Alright, I need folks to be honest and tell me what colour they see this hair as: red head or blonde?  There is no wrong answer...well, unless you see something other than red head or blonde and then I want to know why you aren't sharing those pharmaceuticals.....but I just want you blokes input on it...

I see a redhead.  It *could* be a dirty blonde.  I see a redhead - sun-kissed or dye-returning-to-natural.
