I see you took out the third soldier. I love the swampy weeds and the way you made the wake through them

Well I guess I should tell you a little about the vignette. The figures are DML Nam series Navy seals I modified the one in the rear with arms from another kit. I added slings to the guns. The uniforms are tiger stripe although they appear to be woodland camo in the pics. The elephant ears and the spiky looking plants are made out of pie plate aluminum. The others are just fake flowers. The tree was made from the wire techniche and covered with wall spackle. Woodland scenics for the foilage and moss Im not sure what you call the stuff i used for the vines but it is used for filler in flower arrangements. The water is EnviroTex resin and woodland scenics water effects.

Keenan, excellent! So where do I sign up for the classes?

I think you have quite successfully captured the suspense in the scene as well! I also like that the weapons are being ‘carried’ correctly.

Excellent little vignette PFC! The wake behind each soldier givesa nice sense of movement! What have you used for the floating leaves/plants? The fog is another nice touch! I like the fact you have used a deep base and not just cut of the figures at chest height, anduseda flat base! The effects are all believable. Nice one.

Wonderful Dio you've got there. How did you make the Fog effects? I'm thinking about entering this Campaign myself.

Viva...

I'm astonished with the quality of your QP diorama! It looks like a suspense scene of any Hollywood movie... It's just a pity that the pics are not so good to let us see more detail... But hey, that's just a small drawback...
The idea of creating the fog with cigarrette smoke was just brilliant...

See yaaa
Happy New Year
