I took a few Napoleonic musicians and made them into WWII Germans.
I trimmed down various swords and other parts of their uniforms.
The selection of instruments was small so I had to make my own trombone, and Glockenspiel.
The various drums were "stolen" from other figures and grafted onto these.
In the book German Military Chaplains in World War Two there are many pictures of funerals of bands. In many of the books on the Volksstrum there are a few musicians playing music as these new solders march off the defend the last ditch.
