Black Dog resin base with Panzer Art resin figure, 1/35 scale. Finished with Mr Color lacquers, Tamiya and Vallejo acrylics, and Ammo by Mig enamels. This was my first wedgie diorama and it was a lot of fun. I also managed to crank this out in about 24 hours, which was pretty crazy when I think about it. 


Comments and criticism welcomed as always!

I like the figure. Steely eyed and dangerous!

 

I don't really understand the base though. I'm confused whether it's aiming for realism, as the snow and things on the ground suggest, or symbolic as the sculpture of the Sherman seems to be saying.

It's not a sculpture of a tank, it's a wedge section of a scene. In this case, it's the tanker's knocked out tank that he's advancing from while raising his Thompson.

Hey, TJ, that's pretty nice. The weathering and groundwork are especially strong. If I can make one suggestion it's that the gradations in the skin could be more progressive. Are you a 100% acrylics guy for that kind of task, or would you ever use oils? There is no way that I could paint a face without oils! And I know from PPP that your pace of output is legendary, but one day is really shaming us all! Thanks for sharing.
