"I am the 82nd Airborne. And this is as far as those bastards are going" Battle of the Bulge Vignette
Inspiration struck hard for this one after the vignette contest going on in the group Military 1863-2012. This is a quote from an 82nd Airborne soldier during the Battle of the Bulge when the U.S. Army was in retreatfrom the Ardennes forest, he stayed to fight. As far as I know I'm the very first one to make a MOC out of a war quote, and this leaves room for imagination and a little story.
About this creation
The original quote: "They saw a bazookaman digging a foxhole. Dirty, unshaven, unperturbed, exhausted, he could have posed for Mauldin's "Willie". "Are you looking for a safe place?", he drawled. "Yeah", said Banister. "Well buddy, just pull your vehicle behind me." He hitched up his droopy pants. "I am the 82nd Airborne. And this is as far as the bastards are going."

Another overview.

The road.

Overviews of the foxhole.

"They were retreating from the battlefield and chased by Gerrman tanks when they saw a lone bazookaman digging a foxhole. Dirty, unshaven, unperturbed, exhausted"

"You're looking for a safe place?" He asked.

"Yeah" He replied

"Well, pull your vehicle behind me" He said to them.

"I am the 82nd Airborne, and this is as far as those bastards are going" Heroic phrase and attitude. This shows the pride each trooper had for his unit.

The minifigs.

Lucky me!!! I had used an unshaven head there too!!

Hope you liked it!!! Please rate and comment!!!

Quoting Commander Inferno Awesome!!!!! I can't believe you don't have Brickarms!!! Your creations would be 100% beter! (Not saying your creations are bad! Your creations are amazing!) Oh, I just went on YouTube and I typed in Lego WW2 and I saw one of your video slideshows of German stuff and I saw your Anti-Aircraft gun! Is it ready already? I have to get started then! :)
Thanks, I'm waiting for my birthday to get some (since shipping costs $13, unfair, I'm not that far from where they ship from) And no, that was just a fictional one, I'll try to do the .38 today or tomorrow.

Quoting Lieutenant J you curse alot! cool decals!
Well, cursing is allowed in creations but blocked and will ban you in comments/conversations, that word in the title is not a curse word (DO NOT look it up though) But you're fre to put anything you want in your creations (some limits of course) And those decals are made by some guys called Matt & Alex here in MOCpages as well. And about the SW thing,it's kind of a stereotype, like Alaska being a cold, unpopulated and ugly place, they are fake most of the times but true in some cases, what I'm telling you is to keep on making clones, no one stops you, but don't add every single one as a single MOC, if you want to add them add about 20 of them or so in a single page, it sometimes gets people mad that their MOCs get flushed away by some lots of clones. Why didn't you rate???

First off I would like to say AWESOME. Now that thats over time to judge. Details 10/10 (everything looks awesome from the jeep to the sandbags to the tree) Creativity 9/10 (battle of the bulge = Awesome) and Overall 9/10 (I would like to give you a 10/10 here but at some places it looks a little not as polished as the rest of the Moc). Overall 28/30 You've got a good chance at winning this. Good Luck!
