    This one is moving fast. There will be l.e.d.-lit clouds of gas rolling in behind him... lots of drama.

    Still working on the base, and need to wait for the l.
    e.d.s to arrive, hopefully tomorrow.

    90mm WW I German Stormtrooper by Andrea Miniatures, painted in oils over acrylics.

    I also need to make some barbed wire. Started him Sunday and made it this far by today.

    Now that's what I call inspired presentation, where on earth did you get the helmet from?

    I found it on eBay. A relic dug in Estonia. I believe (could be wrong) that surplus stahlhelm were sold or given to the Estonians after the war. Regardless, I loved the rusted out pattern.

    Matt wow obviously the 200mm MP/Harley didn't put you off and you now come up with this cracker, but do me a favor can you buy one of those colour printed murals of a beach in Hawaii and place it over your window, I can feel the cold everytime you post.

    Nice job Matt and the idea for the presentation is quite inspired.

    Took a first stab at the mustard gas; the l.e.d.s have potential, but I need more than I bought, and all of a uniform color. More are ordered, so I’ll have to come back to this later in the week for a redo. I need some detritus of some sort in and around the trench, so any ideas would be appreciated. I’m going to try teasing up the ‘smoke’ to give it a more gaseous appearance; it’s too lumpy as-is. I think this idea is good, it’s just about making it work at this point. Anyone ever actually see the color of mustard gas? Not sure I trust the on-line pics I see.

    Ok, here’s another try at the mustard gas. I will say this makes an awesome spooky night light. Waiting on some accessories from Jon Smith Modelbau to develop the foreground a bit. Unlit, lit in a bright room, lit in a dark room. 5B5D1E48-2A07-4D8F-B3B2-47CEFAF096C6.jpeg 6814F42D-BC88-4F7F-9ED1-95056D6BDAE1.jpeg 8818D6E8-6EC9-467A-B121-0ED1ABC7CDC5.jpeg 95600BD0-B961-4C95-95FE-8CE572EE7CDD.jpeg 8866750E-9D2A-4E6F-8487-C9B048A284E8.jpeg 371852ED-FCEA-4A0D-AE66-538FDF59DBBC.jpeg
