Graf von Kreuzigung
Don't take my comments too serious, Bleumune.Okay, I give up. I tried to address your comments, Loxuru, which are accurate. In fact, I spent much of today trying to dress the officer in a uniform with appropriate rank badges, but all my efforts came up short. The German SS uniform I was trying to use was simply too old - it wouldn't fit on the character models I was using without distorting (mainly the collar, but the shoulder straps were also uncontrollable). And using an old character model didn't work either - I got the uniform to go on nicely, but I didn't have much in the way of posing tools from that time frame about 10 years ago. So I acknowledge the inaccuracy but it's not worth any more effort to fix it.
It's probably a bad habit of mine, having been in the army, long ago. Some things keep sticking from that time.
It is a good story, carry on, please!
