    Hi planeteers!
    In this hot italian august i submit this vignette in 1/24th reproducing a section of the tower of Fort Wilkinson at Todignac (West of Rudolph Lake) in Kenia just occupied by the dubat of the II Gruppo Bande "Akobo" with the relevant help ot the irregular troops that italians recruited between the Gheleba people.

    The pic was taken in January 1941 after the Fort was re-captured by the british troops.

    In the vignette find place three characters, left to right: a Gheleba irregular warrior, a dubat "capobanda" (about sargeant) and an italian officer (liutnant Saverio VERNY) giving instructions (still to come).

    I'm asking a help about the overall composition. Any opinion and hint is more than welcome! Thanks in advance for every answer!

    Here the threads for the Gheleba https://www.planetfigure.com/threads/galeba-ally-of-regio-esercito.314513/ and for the dubat https://www.planetfigure.com/thread...an-royal-army-colonial-light-infantry.324386/ Cattura.JPG scena.jpg

    That is a lot of base for three figures. Consider cutting down what you can for tighter composition.

    Hi eppi

    Great idea for the piece , agree ref the size ...of you can't reduce it then I think it would take a 4th figure

    Look forward to more updates

    Happy benchtime

    Fantastic work on both figures, they look great. I think they need to be placed closer together for the interaction of both figures, maybe move the tower further to the right and remove more of the wall to close the base down a bit, I would go for a smaller base.
    Cheers
