That or custom ww2 figs aren't what most people here are into. ;)

Srry, I voted but didn't post. I voted for the Sargent, just because he's exactly what I think of when I hear the word sargent, omitting the fact that he's lego and hasn't got a cigar in his mouth. Besides that, I think the Japanese guy should have some sort of camo gear, and the beret (or whatever) doesn't look quite right on the Brittish dude. Also, a little off topic, why the heck does everyone forget the French and the Italians. They were just as big a part of WWII as the British, and free French forces were presint for the invasion of Italy and I believe they fought on D-Day as well (though I have not verified that last one).

Hmm.. I hadn't thought of making a Italian, that's a good idea :) here's a decal for a Italian if anyone else is interested in making one(feel free to modify it how ever you want).

I thought the medic looked the best, especially with the red cross on the helmet. Although, the German commander looks kind of angry and mean. I know they were on the other side (for most of us), but that doesn't mean they were all mean-spirited people.
Woe is me, woe is me, I used to have a hamster tree. Then it got eaten by a newt and now I have no cuddly fruit.

I like it, but maybe add some sort of red accents somewhere (I always associate Facism with red). Nice to be represented (I'm Italian American :D ).

He looks much cooler IMO. You should give him a rifle with a generic small leafy piece attatched to complete the look. Just out of curiosity, do you have any intention of using these guys in future MOCs or displays?

Maybe have some WW2 figs fighting over the castle in a fictional 1940s Germany? :D

The AA gun is very nice BTW, maybe you should give it a target :twisted:
