    i also decided as this will be a sniper team one of them should be carrying a snipers periscope, now i could of just made it in the carrying bag as a pouch but i really fancied having a go at making one from scratch here are my efforts below what do you think?

    more pictures i laid out a rough idea of how the groundwork will look,

    the cork rubble is just there to fill in the gap more bricks and other rubble items will be used plus will add broken wood broken glass twisted metal etc

    but give the impression i want to achieve

    hi here are some more pictures of the ground work, the cork rubble will be replaced with real rubble and the polystyrene walls will be replaced with a proper wall built from miniature bricks

    the staircase will be cut down to the right scale

    after great consideration i have decide not to include the stair case as it would take away the focus of the piece i will include some broken banisters in the rubble though

    I must admit, I was a little disappointed when the stairs left, I thought it gave a good focus to what these guys were doing - going to a higher vantage point. Anyway, awesome work so far, and just to ask - where are the bricks from? Are they available in different scales/sizes?

    thanks for the kind words, the stairs will be back but will be further up the wall once i make my mind up as to where to put them there is also a window to fit more rubble to be placed, the broken mirror, tin bath, pipes, plates and radiator all need to be firmly decided on plus i got to paint the figures lol so much work

    the bricks are dolls house bricks which i cast my self from a silicone mould using polyfiller and paint for colour the scale is roughly 1/12th but they look ok with the figures so will leave not sure if they do other scales got the mould from the link below
