A older exhibit, this is essentially a massive kitbash chock full of nazi zombies. The backgroud is "What if hitler had survived to be a 'happy hippie'", but to me, it seems more likely like "What if hitler made a deal with the devil".

The work is in several large cases, and the backgrounds are real Hitler watercolors, defaced with hippie symbols like rainbows.

Trying to find more pics, but there is one of hitler standing the hill, painting the scene.

Well, it was a bit "different".

What scale were those figures, I wonder.

That was some serious work there. One big project. I think I would need therapy after doing somethng like that. Ingenious reworking and scenery though.
Death is the only certanty in life, how you get there and how much fun you have on the way is only limited by your own imagination.

That was some weird stuff. The artist was either truly inspired or truly wacko. Or maybe a bit of both.

Wow.....that was some undertaking! Sure this thing is pretty gruesome, but it's a well crafted work of art! The artists put a lot of effort into it. I like it, and what was put into it. As for it's complexity, trust me, I've seen more complex works that are truly made by madmen.

It screams "Reich Of The Dead". A state of death, zombies, undead, and chaos. I can see this fitting easily into the game world.
