‘Join the army! Fun, adventure and more killing than you can shake a brick at!’
Had been the exact line used by the recruiter, six months later two fresh faced young soldiers are rethinking their career choice.

Anton and and Franz sit under the baking desert sun,despite recruiter promises they have not killed anything in two weeks.

True to form, 2nd lieutenant Kass does his absolute best to look like he knows what he’s doing.

Lol, this is probably the most accurate to real life entry we've had. Good job on the details too.

Style – 5/10
As was said earlier, the actual life of a soldier is to be appreciated here. Not all moments of the day are filled with horrible violence and gore unfortunately.

Substance – 6/10
There’s an interesting comparison between the weaponry and the ramshackle barricades that I can’t help but notice.

Photography – 5/10
Lemme just get this out of the way first in saying that the pictures are huge. Like way huge. However, your lighting is pretty good if not grainy. It’s important to edit your pictures before posting!

The feel of sitting around and doing nothing really comes across, and it does feel like an outpost in the middle of nowhere. The troops are nice and uniform, as well.

Substance: 6/10
I'm not entirely convinced by the walls, but I get that they're supposed to be ruins or ramshackle defenses, so I kind of get it. The cannon is a nice build, and the way those four guns beside the officer are mounted is nifty.

Photography: 7/10
The pictures do the job, and I like the individual shots of the different soldiers. It feels like shots from a movie where it's cutting between all of them with nothing but peaceful background noise. However, like Ken said, please resize your pictures.

Theme: 5/10
I mean I'm sure this scene has occurred quite a bit in the past year, so I guess a 5 is suitable.

Total: 20 (5)
