    Mostly original, especcialy weapon and equipment, but as for soviet iniforms - mostly afterwar stuff. German uniformos mostly copy, i think.

    Heheh yea, imagine that.

    It would not be a case of: "The russians are comming! The russians are comming!!!!" but a case of: "The germans are comming! The germans are comming! (again)"

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
