Part 1 of this little diorama received a greater reaction than I anticipated with a couple of excellent comments relating to this rarely covered subject. This, along with some pretty dreadful weather over the Easter holidays, inspired me to push on and complete the model.
The figures themselves painted up quite nicely and were all from favoured suppliers such as Gripping Beast and North Star. They are as they came with no modifications. The ground work was completed by adding ground cover and a few more coffee stirrers for the trench effect.
Overall an enjoyable little diorama to put together and one which fits with my self-imposed brief of trying to cover lesser recognised aspects of the Great War for my timeline. Just one model to go now, time for my own big push!
Hopefully they provide sufficient detail to view the completed model but the number of figures made it hard for the camera to find a focal point close up and my own photographic skills were insufficient to compensate.
