Ambush WW2 Dio
Posted by SafferScale on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 10:11 AM

This is just a small dio I made recently depicting US soldiers stalking a German patrol on maneuvres.

Not much to say....Homemade trees,Big ass rock and some groundwork with the figures.....

I can see the photos just fine.

Nice work on the figures and groundwork. And you don't need a complex story, it works quite well.

Actually....it wasnt THAT hard......was my first try.

The trees are made of twisted wire and covered in air dry clay which I roughed up a little before it dried.

The leaves are from a type of plastic spongy craft material that was clumped.I added small natural dried leaves from a thorn tree in my back yard and loose particles of coloured sawdust to give the foliage a more natural look.All the foliage I coloured beforehand by mixing it with the differant shades of green paint.The trees was then painted and shaded with sponge dabbing of paint in differant colours.To finish it off a nice oil wash with burnt umber to pop out a few details.
