    this is still WIP and i have something like 12 figures and a panzer going in it. but the base has warped on me and has cuped in the middle about half an inch off the ground. i guess some of the plaster street and wall still had mousture in it. do you think i can fix it/.

    I like the buildings a lot - were they kits or something you scratchbuilt?

    thanks alot. the first building is scratch built entirely. the second one is all scratch build, including the street, sidewalk, and wall, except for the facade of the building which was vacum formed. the windows and doors were also scratch built.

    here is the first on in full.

    Hi Ruderogo!

    The camoflage, especially on the first picture looks very nice.
    Perhaps some more contrast in the shadows and highlights would be next step?

    cheers

    Ruderogo,

    What I think is quite strong is the pose you have struck with the two soldiers outside the building. It looks very natural and really draws you in. Nice touch with the chair. You've got a good eye for detail.

    Awesome work, Ruderogo! I really like the Russian tankers. You get a real sense of desperation in that vignette.

    Don't be a stranger. Keep showing us your work.

    Jason
