    Hi. Here's a figure I've been working on. I really like the way he's coming together (he is converted form the ICM Gurkha set). I want to use him in a simple vignette but have no idea what the scene could be. Any ideas welcome. WP_20210801_16_27_28_Pro.jpg

    Maybe looking into a shell scrape with a basher, a wet night /day ahead!

    Cheers guys. But why has he got his pistol out? He looks knackered and dispirited; something has happened but I've no idea what. When I put him next to a wounded figure it looked more like he was about to deliver a mercy shot rather than protect him so that option is out.

    I didn't know it was a pistol in the photo, hard to see. Don't know what else to suggest.

    I think I'll use him in an after the battle style vignette. A few paras looking pretty beat up, maybe reloading, rebuilding defenses and caring for the wounded. Thanks for the comments. Its one for the back burner but Im forever messing with figures and have a few boxes of the MB British infantry due in the post so will have plenty to play around with.

    Catching up on things a bit

    Good ideas from others ...he certainly looks tired ....I like the trench idea perhaps sat on the edge with a dead enemy in the bottom

    Look forward to seeing what you do with this figure

    Happy benchtime
