August 26, 2016 in Diorama
This is the companion piece to the recently posted “Last Orders” diorama. Again, it’s a Russian, winter-themed setting.
The bridge figures are 1/35 resin offerings from Alpine and Stalingrad Miniatures. The German personnel are from styrene sets from Zvezda and Dragon. The T-26 armour is also from Zvezda, but I’ve used replacement tracks from Polish firm RPM.
The cart’s coffin is a resin piece from Fields of Glory and the Russian flag is from Reality in Scale.
The figures are all base-coated with Vallejo acrylics and finishes with artist oils.
The bridge itself is a modular construction, in this case two complete sections, with the pieces pre-cut and planed, which required them to be tool-worked to create rough faces. I’ve added scratch-built sections to the same dimensions, and artist oils have been used for the finishes, for character.
The terrain features are from polystyrene, fillers various and craft mediums, and painted with Vallejo acrylics and artist oils.
