Jerry, we've grown accustomed to your excellent builds, but it never gets old. Outstanding work! One can feel the dread of these poor lads marching into harm's way. It's almost painful to watch...

Hi Jerry,

Excellent work, as always, I love the feel of movement you convey as they stride through the long, wind-blown, grass...truly dynamic.

Cheers, ,

One suggestion is that you could flatten down the grass behind the soldiers to show where they've walked. Maybe also change the grass colour as well ( more yellow near the roots that can only be seen when flattened).

Yes,thanks,I did consider that. The issue is the scene is done from a different point of view than the usual dio. In the past I made straight forward works like I have always done for decades,IE,a finished piece with a finished base and able to be viewed from any side. This concept is different,being a series of "storyboard" scenes. i can't possibly afford to make every scene a finished dio. Long story short,I have to re-use some items like the grass I made for this scene.
Hope that makes sense.
