I've made a base, using various bits of plywood, natural earth, white glue and a bit of clear glossy paint:

Normally these types of road would be made from more naturally shaped logs and branches, but let's assume they came upon a large shipment of lumber to reinforce their field HQ :lol:

Yeah, the edges still need some cleanup and then a bit of neutral black paint.

Nice base Philipp,

looks like you will be making a small hole on the shelf of doom ;)

Just the figures to finish then?

Have fun

Shawn, Steve, thank you!

It's been far too long again, so I should at least post some progress...In my defense, I did spend a weekend rebuilding my workbench - note the distinctive lack of clutter in the background :lol:

Image

I decided to break up the brown monotony of the base with a bit of melting snow, made from baking soda. Some of it turned a little yellow, so I had to fix that by adding more on top... The signpost was mostly scratchbuilt with thin plywood, a toothpick and whatever leftover decals and transfer letters I could find. From top to bottom: Stab GD (staff), HVP=Hauptverbandsplatz (forward-area field hospital), Instandsetzung (Maintenance).

And it only took me....*looks at old photo timestamps* 8 years! :lol:

Proper gallery photos once the paint has dried and the camera battery is recharged :lol: I'm sure I'll also find some little things to touch up in the meantime.

Thank you Vincent, it was a fun build, even though it took a little long :lol:

Now let's finish that Soviet armoured sports car and maybe then I'll even start something new for the GB 8-)

I wish it was only a shelf :lol: :oops:

Boxes and boxes of nearly finished GB's, and hundreds of built and primed figures too :oops: :roll:

It might be a winter of catch up when Boris finally realises he is a complete nincompoop and puts some lockdown measures back into place.

We really are the "Sick Man of Europe"" at the moment!

50,000 new cases a day and rising!

Well done Philipp, leading by example, onto the next one?

Thank you gentlemen :D

This is about half of all my unfinished business:
