    Gents,
    Here are the very early stages of my largest to date (number of figures wise) dio.
    It will represent Polish troops taking the San Angelo Hill during the last of Cassino battles in May 1944.
    Figures are almost all converted from various DML sets with gear and helmets from both DML and Tamiya. The peak of the hill is done by coating a rough shape with foam sealant. Once dry it can be cut and shaped.
    If you are interested in more about the battle here is a link to a site I built few years back...

    The Hill is starting to slowly take shape. You can now see a rough shape of the bunkers.

    Here are the "troops",... I airbrushed the base colours for the uniforms and painted in the base colour for the fleshtones. Now the "fun" can begin ;)
