Arnhem Take 2!

Post by Steve Hutchinson »

Time to have another go at some figures!

Could look something like this?
Image

The victims
Image
Image
The base for a base?
Image
and how to ;)
Image

The plan is :roll:

Monty and Churchill walking past an Arnhem sign post, the Horrocks and daughter figures will be on the other side as part of the paparazzi group taking photos and film footage of the recreated fictional moment, Arnhem Take 2!

I have 3 other figure projects on the back burners, as I really do intent to be figure focused :roll:

Role on the new GB

Hi Adam

The book is really useful, reasonably priced at £20
I also got the 2 companion books on trees too.
And the Terrain Modelling DVD by Richard Windrow
As with all these type of books and DVD's, the acid test is,

"can you do it too?"

We will see ;)

It is straight forward with simple instructions, easy to find materials and lots of photos.
I have everything collected up ready to roll

Lets see what we can create for this GB ;)

Regards

Hi Steve,

So is this going to be like an alternate reality scenario?

I've been making my way through the Stargate SG-1 series again (this is fourth time around) and there is a few alternate reality episodes :lol: :lol: :lol:
Woody...

Trying hard to do some modeling!

Hi Woody

Way too complex :? :roll: :lol:

Alternative, as in, I don't think it ever happened?

Churchill and Monty walking past an Arnhem Sign, together.

Take 2 as in it didn't happen as Monty planned, ie "A Bridge to Far"

I will add the reviews for the Road to Victory figure set, where the General Horrocks figure is described as "nothing like!"

review

So, next best thing use the figures in a different way ;)

As part of the "alternative" is a crowd of "paparazzi" why not have a director and assistant!

Job done, both the the 2 redundant figures back in the game ;)

Cunning plan, but needs paint to make it work!

I will start with the base, as it is another part of scenario building I haven't mastered, yet!

See what happens ;)

Thanks for popping in Raoul, lets see what happens :D

More soon?

Regards

Hi Chaps

Just to show willing, and prove that I will do a 2nd and 3rd possible figure projects in the next 6 months

The proof, photos always accepted rather than just words ;)
