“Champagne! In victory one deserves it, in defeat one needs it” - Napoleon
Why So SS-erious?
I enjoy wargaming but I feel a certain ambivalence when I wargame the Waffen-SS. But anyway, it's a game.
So when I painted my commander-in-chief for my Blitzkrieg Commander 6mm Waffen-SS division, I thought, just like Batman's Joker: "Why So Serious?" Let's make fun of those bloody evil Nazi Schweinhunde, in true Allo Allo-fashion, or John Cleese "Don't Mention The War!"
I downscaled a pulp poster and made a scenic base in Nazi Zombie-style, with a few undead SS-troopers and a #metoo girl in the background. This commander will certainly not be overlooked on my tabletop :-)
Don't mention the war!
