As far as I understand this is Alternate History. I know there is no real reason to add it, but why is there no Austria-Hungary? :x ;)

I like this, but one quuestion, what's up with the US? All they had were fancy swords and outfits that look like they came from a "Curious George" book?

Great job in keeping the 1930th uniform style.

How did you pull this off?

The uniforms are from a compendium called "Battledress", and are by Wilhelm von Halem; I borrowed the book and scanned the ones I wanted as a base, and then photoshopped them to be how I wanted. This involved a fair bit of swapping heads around and so on, as well as colours, poses etc.

I then did a google image search for "cigarette cards", found a suitable set, then changed the name of the company and did the majority of the backgrounds myself. Was quite a job- between that and the figures there was an awful lot of photoshopping- but am happy with the result.

The effort's clearly there. And for the most part, it's practically seamless. Nice work!

These are relly good. Are you going to make more for other countries?

That's my lot I think, most of the remaining countries aren't really interesting enough to bother with, or would probably be wearing similar uniforms to the ones I've already shown.

Interesting. Tacky clothing, they need to learn of camouflage.
