    The roman emperor Tiberius Iulius Caesar Augustus and the preatorian praefectus Lucius Aelius Seianus in the emperor's study, AD 30.



    The two 75 mm figures (Sanderson, Pegaso) are partly very complex converted.
    The Roman room was created based on original models and - including the furnishings - is completely scratch-built.

    Gandamak 1842. The final stand of british troops. All the figures by Time Machine in 54mm, some in resin and some in white metal. After I designed a template with the position of all the soldiers, I made the ground and then, each of every hole for the nails, each soldier wore at their feet. The collector Antonio Mata, put and fixed all the soldiers together. I painted all the soldiers one by one along a year. Here is the result. (Pics by Antonio Mata, private collector, Barcelona Spain).

    Here's something I've just finished up especially for this comp.:)
    (For those that haven't been following along there is a work in progress thread with lots of details here - https://www.planetfigure.com/threads/bison-hunt.248888/page-2#post-1084026)
    The original kit is by Altores and is 54mm. I made up a completely new horse from scratch and added saddle cloth etc. The original riders pose was altered by moving his legs forward for better balance and he has a few added details. All painted in acrylics and mounted onto one of Oakwood's bases.

    Ok Nap, I'm in.

    Various 1/35th scale figures painted in oils over acrylics and Tamiya's M48A3. The structure was done the old way, plaster slabs and plenty of extras throughout the scene.

    This Diorama was dedicated to the 1/5 Marines who fought the bloody battle for the “Citadel at Hue”, north of the Perfume River in Vietnam during the NVA Tet Offensive of 1968. Special thanks to Nick Warr, author of “Phase Line Green”, who graciously gave of his personal time and material information to help me correctly depict these events. The Dong Ba Tower overlooked Phase Line Green, ( Mai Thuc Loan street), this diorama depicts actual events which took place during the battle for the Ancient Imperial City of Hue.

    Cheers, Ski.

    As Nap suggested, I'm in with my commemoration of the evacuation of civilians from Guernsey in 1940.

    I am sure most are aware of his but here is a potted history. After the German army swept across France they arrived in Normandy at the end of May 1939 and it became clear that the Island would be occupied - the UK government declared it a de-militarised zone but forgot to tell the Germans which resulted in a line of truck at the harbour being staffed by the Luftwaffe. Apparently they thought they were ammo trucks when in fact they were full of tomatoes for export to England.

    The population had only a couple of days to decided whether or not to remain or be evacuated, many children were evacuated, some with their school, some with one of two parents, and some alone. My mother was evacuated with her mother, but not her father - he was due to travel on a later ship but the Germans arrived before it did. One of the saddest aspects of the evacuation was the number of pets which were put to sleep - people could only take one suitcase and no pets.

    It is strange to think that during the winter/spring of 1939/40 the Channel Islands were still seen as a holiday destination. I know of one family from England who were on holiday in Jersey at the time the Germans arrived so they ended up staying until 1945!. A good friend of mine's father was a cooper from London, he was seconded to one of Guernsey's breweries to make barrels in the spring of 1940, for what should have been 6 months; he too remained for the whole of the war !

    This is a little vignette I produce a while ago depicting a mother and child walking up a gang-plank to board a ship while some others are looking on/waving goodbye. a wicker trunk is left on the quay - somebody had hoped to take it but ended up just leaving it behind. It is all commercial figures, painted using acrylics.

    I'm in too! almost by coincidence have to say as I was preparing this small fantasy vignette in 32mm as test for some color scheme I'd like to use on a bust in future. The parts are 3D prints from Titan Forge miniatures.
    Original theme/title would be "Lord.. the war is over" representing a warlord coming back to his shogun to inform him about the end of the war (actually all the ideograms on the banners are the ones meaning "bushido" (on the knight), and the 7 virtues of the samurai (the black and purple ones plus the seventh engraved on the upper part of the portal).
    Or as a friend texted me you could also see "a guy clearly trying to meditate and this douche just gets up in his grills with a slobbering lion all like -hey wachya doing? - .. "wtf man, meditating obviously" :dead:

    Take the Guns lads!

    A 1/35 depiction of the Charge at Hùj, 8th Nov 1917 by the combined Yeomanry forces of Worcestershire and Warwickshire Regiments. The last great unsupported cavalry charge of the British army, the end of an era.

    Reconfigured and sculpted ICM, Masterbox and Miniart figure parts, some with re-sculpted Hornet Heads. Scratch built base and converted 1/35 Emhar 96a field gun into the 75mm Krupp, one of the 11 artillery pieces captured by the Yeoman that day.

    Inspired by the painting by Lady Butler with research conducted at the Warwickshire Yeomanry museum (UK).

    Hi All,,

    My entry is a plausible scene of the Versailles court of Louis XIV. Given the poisonous atmosphere prevailing then, I have tried to show two ladies out riding in the woods, but only for the company. There is an icyness in their relationship. Figures and dogs are scratchbuilt with some commercial parts and converted Historex horses.

    USMC Radio Jeep, Saipan 1944, a piece I may title "Saipan Shave." 1/24 scale, using the Italeri Jeep with an AC Models resin conversion kit that included two figures. The shaving Marine is converted from Preiser 'Adam.' M-1s, pistols, and jerry cans from Shapeways, lots of minor scratch add-ons including most of the loose gear strewn about. Composition was lifted from a period pic. I used acrylic and oils paints, with liberal doses of Vallejo pigments, AK Pencils, and various groundwork products.
