Just finished this small diorama and am very pleased with the result. Tried some new techniques and scratch built everything except the figures for the first time.

 

Depicts a group of weary and disconsolate German infantry trudging past the ruins of yet another burnt out Russian farm in winter of 1942. The NCO takes a peek into the 'privy' but decides not to bother using it!

 

Figures are mostly Masterbox, with 2 Dragon figures added. Heads have been swapped on most of them for Hornet items (One is from Bodi I think). Some of the original heads included collars etc so needed to make new ones for using the Hornet heads.  new collars & 'Private Pike's' scarf (the last guy in line) are from green stuff putty. First time I had used this so pretty happy with the results.

 

House was built from kebab sticks, foam and lolly (craft) sticks. Privy and fence are from plasticard. Pine tree is from wire ad moss, and other tree is just a twig from the garden. Snow is made from a mixture of lightweight filler, acrylic modelling paste and baby powder for the roof dusting.

 

Hope you like and all comments welcome :)

That is superb!  Simple, yet so much detail .... the fella lighing the cigarette, the yawning chap at the back and the privy .... 🤢

You get the sense of cold, and the dejected mood .....

Excellent...very realistic in a lot of ways!! Hopefully the cold keeps the smell down. You could call it...Not  Here...Not Today.
