firing a sten while holding the magazine with the supporting hand often caused feeding jams. Nice picture though

Really Great Work.

I'm nitpicking really but British commandos used No.36 Mills Grenades not US Mk.2 Grenades. Also, it would be unusual for a British commando to carry an unsilenced Sten SMG. The commandos tended to dislike the Sten, so they usually carried M1928A1 Thompson SMGs. Some were assigned Sten guns fitted with silencers however.

Thanks for the comments! I really wanted to give him an oh-so-british Sten but the silencer would have been a good adition. Maybe i could add it in the future. Cheers!

And if I run out of Submachinegun ammo, I will use my pointy mustache to take down the Krauts.

Awesome job! I admire the British side of World War II Say may i suggest you do a pic of a British Paratrooper of the Red Devils and one of Bill Millin The Piper who was in the D-day landings?

How about Mad Jack Churchill? He was like Bill Millin after a pub crawl in Liverpool! (He fought with a SWORD AND BOW :D)

hello mate.

artistically, I have no critic. I'm affraid, however there are a few technical details that are wrong:

1st: the insignia is inverted (the eagle and the Thomson MUST face front).

2nd: unless we're shooting, the finger must be kept away from the trigger.

3rd: (not very important) the scarf is not the same they used back then.

other than that, the image is great, very detailed. Well done :)
