    I painted these figures quite some time ago and thought I must get a base made.

    So thanks to MDF, thin polystyrene sheeting, filler, Gripfill, coffee stirrers and Milliput I made the base, plus of course a bit of paint.

    That's a cracker Geoff. Very nice trench scene. I always pick up a handful of stirers from Coster's, wife thinks I'm mad.

    Brilliant work Geoff - like the trench woodwork & nameplate, just set the scene off nicely.

    Super job on this Geoff. The trench setting is really nicely done. Love the Tommy’s War figures.

    Thanks Jed pleased you like it, I think those figures are the best TW has produced.

    Don't worry about competing with other painters just do your best and be happy with the end result, that's what matters.

    Many thanks Ken, there is a couple of things I don't like about the trench but it's too late to change things now

    Geoff that is truly excellent, going on the volume of work that you post on PF you clearly have an amazing passion for the hobby.
    Got a laugh here too at the scourge of the modelers sweeping across the world taking the stirring sticks out of the coffee shops, could we be responsible for the high prices they charge for a cup of coffee and a bun.
