    My diorama entry for August/September is......
    Figures, all painted with hobby acrylics, are mostly 75mm from Pegaso, Kimera, Meirce Miniatures, Mercury Models and a Scale75 Dwarf who looks like he's gone AWOL from a 40K Warhammer RPG.
    The small 54mm figure is a, (possibly OOP), kit by Morland Studios and the Eagle is from the 80mm Alexandros Miniature of Zeus, (to be replaced back onto the Greek God's forearm once I find a suitable alternative).
    Odin is a hand-carved wooden item that I picked up in the Duty-Free shop at Oslo Airport around 30-years ago.
    The groundwork is celluclay spread over several old cardboard box and scrunched-up newspaper formers. Snow is from Precision Ice & Snow with additional ice effects built up from silicon caulking and clear gloss heavy acrylic gel medium. Bushes, etc, are from my spares box.
    The main focal point of the diorama is of course the embedded LED Ring Light which is standing in as a "Magic Portal Between Worlds" and provides amazing visual effects when set against an appropriate backdrop and switched on in a darkened room.

    My entry for August/September:
    Imperial Roman Signifier
    Manufacturer: Headsculpt - (indie brand); Body - DiD; Uniform & weapons HH Model X HaoYu Toys; Bearskin, pouch, sculpted palm on signum (standard), boots, leggings - scratchbuilt apoxy putty sculptures.
    Scale: 1/6
    Materials used: Vallejo acrylic paints, Tamiya enamel washes, Mig pigments, AK Interactive Snow & Dark Earth, Apoxie Sculpt sculpting clay.

    This is my 1/6th scale character study of an Imperial Roman Signifier as depicted on the frontline of a wintry Northern European campaign. Besides the standard that he carries, the other most notable element is the bearskin that is draped on him. I scratchbuilt the bearskin, sculpting the head out of Apoxie Sculpt putty, painted and attached it to the faux fur. Brown mohair was attached to the bear head. After trimming, sculpted Apoxie Sculpt putty fake teeth were attached to the upper mandibles of the bear’s mouth. The faux fur was painted in shades of brown, then carefully brushed with a toothbrush to breakup the kinks. The kitbashed elements were all repainted and weathered as were the long sleeves garment which were wet brushed with layers of burnt umber and black ‘gunk’ mix. Splatters of blood were sporadically flicked on the figure and gladius. The shield was heavily weathered with Vallejo paints and enamel washes for a battle-damaged effect with streaks and splatters of blood running down the front. This Signifier is in a pretty mean mood and is not laying down his standard easily!

    The groundwork is a mix of celluclay with Apoxie Sculpt putty spread over a small wood former secured to the wooden base to create a little rock outcrop. AK Interactive snow was applied over the Dark Earth pigment. The rock outcrop was painted in a mixture of burnt umber, black and greys. Bushes are roots of dried up plants, painted brown.
