I think it should be about time I formally introduce my characters.
Just drawing them and uploading project with them without a proper character description and introduction strikes me now as rude..... more so taking into account that I've been drawing her for well over three years.
Meet Helga Nadler. Second Leutenant (Leutnant) serving in the 633. Panzergrenadierbatallion (Mechanized Infantry Battallion). The 633rd is a part of the 50th Armored Brigade which in turn is a part of the German Army's 3rd Armored Division with Headquarters in Cologne.
Helga Nadler was born in Cologne, June 23 1997 (Please note, that the story she'll be featured in is set somewhere around the mid to late 2010s).
Helga is a girl with a can-do attitude and is always willing to prove that nothing is out of her reach. Very joyful and likes to pull jokes when someone least expects it. She's also very competitive and sometimes when she gets frustrated, she gets an ill temper. Little inmature at times but always a good friend ready to lend a hand to fellow brothers and sisters in arms.
She likes virtually any kind of Metal and Rock music and is a fan of Michael Bay films (LOL). She also enjoys sports such as Football (And I mean the real football.... not that fake rugby
) and Ice Hockey. She also likes teasing men......... because it's fun to see them act all goofy whenever they're in front of a pretty girl).
Also.... she can speak in Kölsch (A dialect proper from the region).
She dislikes Politics (And is overall rather ignorant about the matter), people smoking and gets very ticked off when someone tells her that women can't do anything. She's also dislikes smartasses. Often gets into arguements with superior officers.
Her weapon of choice is a G-36A2 with an EOTech and AG-36 grenade launcher. Her main transport (As usual with PzG Units) is a Schützenpanzer Puma (IFV).
And that's Helga.
I'll be doing more of these in the future. Well I hope so anyway.
I got enough material to make one more and then I'll have to start drawing on the computer. It's not going that well I'm afraid so it's going to take time.
The next character to get an introduction like this will be Maximiliam Schneider also from the Bundeswehr. Hopefully I can work on the intros of characters of other countries.
The units mentioned here are fictitious. Their patches are made up as well.
The "3rd Armored Division" is roughly based on th real life 1st Armored Division of the German Army. I also should note that it being based in Cologne is also fictional. I picked that city out of need of picking one that was set in Nordrhein-Westfalen and was not already the HQ of another real life Division.
The Uniform was made following a PDF file of the German Ministry of Defence regarding Uniforms as reference. Mighty helpful I must say. I did made a couple of mistakes but I'm very happy with the way they've turned. Drawing Uniforms and trying to make them look accurate is difficult (More so if said uniform has to reflect properly the nature of the soldier wearing it.
I hope you like it. I'll get to your comments soon.
See'ya in the Battlefield!
