Romanian Soldiers
Just something I wanted to do as a quickie after the dragon tree village, it's a drawing of three Romanian soldiers during WWII, them being an Iron Guard Legionary Magyarosaurus, a Balaur Army officer, and a Biharisaurus infantrysar. Following the Austro-Hungarian Spaltung of 1921, the Romanians waged war against a now-independent Hungary, securing the Banat region and a part of southern Transylvania. However, most of that region (which included the city of Cluj) remained in Hungarian hands after the British and Germans, with support of the newly-founded League of Nations, forced the two nations to cease hostilities. There was much resentment in Romania and the royal government became more authoritarian following Carol II's succession to the throne in 1930, enabling the fascist Iron Guard to ascend to power with the king's blessing. What Romania most desired was to gain the rest of Transylvania from Hungary, but the government knew this would draw the ire of Bulgaria, Austria-Czechia, Poland-Lithuania, Ukraine, and most of all, Germany, so the Legionary government built up its military and industrial force and made alliance with like-minded nations within the Entente as they bided their time for the right opportunity to strike. That opportunity came with the RFSFR's invasion of Ukraine, Belarus, Estonia, Livonia, and Poland-Lithuania, drawing the WB into war with the ComIntern.

On April 6, 1941, Romania, along with Greece and Serbia, declared war on both Hungary and Bulgaria; the majority of its land and air forces had been concentrated in the north and so, it was able to seize the majority of Hungarian Transylvania within a week. The Romanian government was confident that their allies would keep the Bulgarians tied down, unable to aid Hungary, though the sudden declaration of war by previously-neutral Croatia-Bosnia on April 10 caught them by surprise. Croat-Bosnian troops smashed into the flanks of Fourth Army at Szeged three days later, forcing them into retreat, while Austro-Czech bombers attacked supply depots and rail lines. In the meantime, the Iron Guard launched pogroms against the Jews both in Romanian lands and in occupied territory, killing scores in gruesome atrocities and displacing hundreds, who fled to Allied lines. The most famous of the Jewish survivors was Elie Wiesel, a Hungarian teenager whose parents and younger sister were killed by Legionaries in May 1941, forcing him and his remaining siblings to flee where they could be safe. They were eventually picked up by Hungarian soldiers near Munkacs, where the Second Army was planning to cross the Tisa River at Tekehaza; from there, the Wiesel siblings were taken on a train due southwest to Nyiregyhaza and then on another train south to Debrecen, where they would remain for the duration of the war.

The Legionaries would conduct their pogroms for three years, until the coup launched by King Michael on August 23, 1944, when the young king removed the Iron Guard government and inspired the tattered remnants of Romania's military to rebel against the Legionaries. The green-uniformed Fascist thugs who slaughtered Jews with impunity were now being hunted down by Royal Army soldiers and police, with many fleeing into the Carpathian hinterlands or toward friendly lines in Serbia and Greece (despite those two nations themselves undergoing civil unrest regarding their own authoritarian governments). A switch was made, with Romania now fighting its former allies, while the remainders of its Navy and Air Force aiding in the fight against the Soviets across the Black Sea. The end of the Second World War would see a period of melancholy and soul-searching after seeing how they had allowed such a monstrous government to come to power, wage war with Romania's neighbors, and the Anti-Semitic policies implemented by Codreaneau's regime.



Nothing much to say, beyond me doing the usual business of finding the right reference images for the poses, uniforms, and equipment, figuring out the species to depict, and so on and so forth. The Legionary is holding an Orita M1943, a version of the Orita M1941 submachine gun made simpler to manufacture and fitted with a metal folding stock (and which is based off of a last-ditch Soviet SMG). The officer is loading an FN Browning Hi-Power, his pose I based off of an illustration of a Waffen-SS tanker found in Pinterest. And, lastly, the riflesar has a Mannlicher rifle slung over his shoulder, looking bulkier than the other two sars completely by accident. The tank I kinda added last minute before I started doing the colors, it's an FCM 36, as I figured Romania in this TL would rely more heavily on French vehicles and equipment, as well as whatever its domestic industry and its neighboring allies could conjure up.

Well, it seems that today, my dad was fired from his work at Walmart, apparently because they wanted him to accept truck calls and drive dozens of miles in order to receive them (which he won't due to his anxieties, as he hates driving alone). Since he's our only real source of income, we'll be in a tight spot for a while, my SSI and the pay my mom receives as a caregiver will be the only things keeping us afloat, at least until dad applies for unemployment (and mom says there's a good chance Walmart will try to fuck him over on that front). Last year, mom considered a part-time as a dog-groomer (which she used to work as before my youngest sister was born), but dad put the kaibosh on that; now, there might be a good chance she'll have to pursue that path, whether he may like it or not.

With money now being tight for us, there will be little in the ways of financial purchase on my part, when I had recently been wanting to buy new sets of colored pencils and erasers (as well as a couple games on Steam). I might also have to try to actually self-publish a story, if only I can get off my ass and focus and not be distracted by the internet. If only to ensure that, even if dad finds new employment, he would no longer be our only stable source of income.

I now live in the dinky town of Irrigon, Oregon along the Columbia River (which we just moved to), and I love Reptiles, especially Dinosaurs.

I have a vivid, borderline batshit, imagination, a love for history and alternate history, and like listening to classical music, metal and rock, and occasionally country (don't you judge me). I am also an introvert, having been so since my preteens, I had been more or less so before that, and I have a deadly combination of high-functioning autism, ADHD, and the aforementioned imagination.
