    Hello all fellow PF members.
    I know that you haven't heard from me for a while, but I was working on this little dio. It consists of 2 separate kits. One from Soldiers - The red thin line and the other one is a Beneito kit. It was a fun project that finally came to an end. The groundwork is totally scratchbuilt (Here I would like to thank my good friend Costas aka Major_Goose for his endless help).
    Anyway I hope you like it and of course any comment and critic is welcomed.

    Dear Xenofon, for once more you see that the more u spend time on a project the better becomes.

    The setup of the vigniette is really nice , and alive, showing the movement, and the action. The poor guy on the ground is totally hopeless, thats obvious !!!! :eek:

    You gave done a nice job,in painting and groundwork, that i know wasnt easy, and you deserve the compliments..

    Now that the road is open, plan some more vigniettes !!!!

    Keep safe

    Costas my good friend, thanks a lot for your encouraging words and your truly valuable help on compliting this dio.
    Roger the stone works has done with 2 part epoxy putty. I set the main scene with plaster rocks.. and then covered with the putty and shaped accordingly.
    Patrick, John, Christos, Thanks a lot for your good comments, greatly appreciated.

    Superb diorama, Xenofon! Well-staged and built and beautifully painted! That's NOT a real rock!?!? I'd never have guessed it!

    All the best,

    great work Xenofon.
    I like it alot.
    only one thing. The back of the bearskin: Only the band around the bearskin is red white squars. The strap on the back of the bearskin is black not with red and white squars.
    That's the only comment i can make.
    Great work. And the base is awesome.

    Xenofon,
    really nice action piece here! Well composed and the reds of the soldiers stands out perfectly against the grayish rocks. Nice vignette for sure!
