This one as the title suggests involves some walking wounded German troops somewere in Normandy or thereabouts anyhow,, who knows.....
As a base I used one of the bigger trophy bases and as a backdrop for the scene I used the old classic Italeri church window which actually comes from a Tamiya/Italeri collaboration set I had in the stash
Setting the scene,i just used the main part of the church as space is def at a premium and again using static grass as the basis for the groundwork it looks just right
I then formed a bit of a muddy path in the grass
The figs I intend to use are a combo of two sets from Dragon figs from the stash of which I have way way to many boxes
And how they should look walking on the base, not sure on placements....yet but def the two lads from the medical set at the back anyhow looks best ,I think
How will look as part of the trio of small dios ive planed next to the sentries and other, as yet empty base , but the lads below could be forming a nice little grouping on that one as I have another Italeri church window in the stash
So hopfully tomorrow get some serious painting done on these lads, more weathering , some groundwork and rubble around the base, but as with the sentry based scene really happy with how its shaping up
I'm looking forward to seeing this come together.
The glory days of the Blitzkrieg are now all but a distant memory for these German troops as they head to the field hospital to be patched up and fight again another day.
I added in some more static grass on the groundwork and also added in some battle debris such as jerry cans , empty shell casings etc, ill be adding in more before im finished as a good root through all my spares boxes is due for things that i know that are there which will be ideal for this
Thanks to Leo for the donation of some hedgerow material which i added in at the back of the church ruin to try and give it that abandoned, overgrown look, im going to buy me a load of this stuff when i get to Telford as it is just class and realistic looking
Some paintwork on the figs themselves, as im sure ive stated before im no expert figure painter,but for my skill level im well pleased with em,i still must pick out the fine details such as equipment, insignia etc etc
Ive a lot Red Cross decals in the stash that im trying to think of some way including in the scene somehow, signpost maybe, not sure yet, maybe leave them out altogether
So overall good progress made but still a lot to do on the ruin, figs etc before im totally happy with this little scene
Looking forward to the next update.
I think thats prob enough vegetation now,maybe some more grass here n there and also some more shell casings, i wanted add some more discarded jerry cans but the way the figs will be fixed in position just wouldnt look right, so more shells it is
I added in a discarded metal fence in the overgrown church ruin, this comes from the Miniart spares box which i always find useful bits n bobs.
I also added in a dog which i found and added in with the figs walking along for some extra interest
And as part of the trio of small dios......with the other one coming up next post
